Vermont Activists want to arrest President and VP

Activists in a small town in Vermont want to arrest and prosecute George Bush and Dick Cheney for violations of constitutional law.

“A group in Brattleboro,VT is petitioning to put an item on a town meeting agenda in March that would make Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont community.

The measure asks: “Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictment for consideration by other municipalities?”

“This petition is as radical as the Declaration of Independence, and it draws on that tradition in claiming a universal jurisdiction when governments fail to do what they’re supposed to do,” said Kurt Daims, 54, a retired machinist leading the drive.”

Vermont’s Senate voted earlier this year to support impeachment of President Bush, and “Impeach Bush” stickers are on the bumpers of many cars in the state.

Of course this won’t really go anywhere, but it’s nice to see people realizing what the present Administration is trying (and sadly, mostly achieving) to do with our country.
