Protesters interrupt McCain speech

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Anti-war protesters briefly interrupted John McCain's acceptance speech Thursday night at the Republican National Convention. The nominee told supporters "don't be diverted by the crowd noise and the static."
One male protester and two female protesters were removed from the hall by security officers. The male demonstrator had a sign that read "You can't win an occupation" on one side, and "McCain votes against vets" on the other side.
The crowd tried to drown them out with chants of, "USA, USA."
"My friends, my dear friends ... please, please don't be diverted by the crowd noise and the static," McCain said. "I'm going to talk about it some more, but Americans want us to stop yelling at each other."
What happened to the person that the security guard seemed to be brutalizing before the camera turned away?
It takes a lot of courage to do what they did and a lot of really in depth planning to get past security under those conditions.
Isn't freedom wonderful!!
