Rioting Cops To Have BBQ, Reminisce About Beating Longhairs

COPS COPS COPSThe rioting insane cops who beat protesters at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago are having a reunion next week! And it's bringing out the crazy all over again. Says one person claiming to be one of those cops: "Anarchists came to the city to disrupt the democratic process. They continue with their rhetoric but provide little substantive efforts to better their environment. They choose instead to intimidate a bunch of old men getting together for a good time." Yes, maybe some elderly anarchists will come by and try to crack some skulls at their peaceful get-together.

"The only thing that stood between Marxist street thugs and public order was a thin blue line of dedicated, tough Chicago police officers. . .Chicago police officers who participated in the riots continue to endure unending criticism — all of which is unwarranted, inaccurate and wrong."

One truth in there: the officers participated in the riots, per the official investigation. One inaccuracy in there: that any of those cops were thin.
Oh, and "public order"? Um. . .cue the video??

You mean, like this one?

"The police are not here to create disorder. They are here to preserve disorder."

–Mayor Richard J. Daley

If the Days of Ragers decide to drop in on the cops' barbeque, can we get Haskell Wexler to come film it? Call it Medium Well Done.

And don't forget this gem; ( as all hell broke loose outside the convention hall, Senator Abe Ribicoff had the guts to shout about "Gestapo tactics". You can't quite see it on the tape, but according to Wikipedia, "…lip-readers throughout America claimed to have observed Mayor Daley shouting,'Fuck you, you Jew son of a bitch.'( was 13 and watching it with my family, and you could practically hear Daley. My dad was sure he said "kike" as well.

Will they have a barbeque? I'd love to exhume Daley's corpse and throw it on the fire.
