    Why was there a need for arrest?

    Some great shots there. I was really drawn to memorial and spectator. Very strong work.

    Yup - protesting deaths but those are pretty much the same crowd protesting FOR abortion - completely ruins their credability in my eyes. Can't have it both ways folks.

    Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox now.

    Really enjoyed the story, pictures and narration. Three pictures that really stand out for me are the memorial, reading the names of war dead and spectator. In the spectator the woman looks very worried bordering on terrified. The guy is pretty brave handing out the names in a sea of cops.

    That sure looked like a small police force compared to the protesters, must of been some tanks hiding around the corner :)

    Glad you shared the story with us :)

    Nice group of images, very good capture of emotions. All nicely exposed, too.

    Great job! :D

    Great group of shots in story form. Interesting crowd.

    Photography has no political boundaries. Whether youÂ’re a liberal, or a conservative, we are all here to enjoy photography.

    We are in a politically charged time. We are in the middle of a war with an unknown ending, and approaching a presidential election, so discussion of politics is inevitable.

    yep, talking politics is inevitable especially now. however, i do want to make it clear. based on the direction the "man on bench" thread went, that this post was in no way intended to stir up political discussion and i'm glad it didn't. i appreciate everyone's treatment of my thread as photography and nothing more! thank you all for your kind remarks. :D
