    Puhleez..No one attacked her... I guess the bus tour needed media attention.

    Sheehan said that she was slightly injured in the melee as police grabbed away the microphone and seized sound equipment. "I was speaking and someone grabbed my backpack and pulled me back pretty roughly," she told the Associated Press. "I was shoved around."
    The word "attack" should be reserves for thiose that really get attacked.

    While i cannot possibly understand that it's like to lose a child, to have a child killed in a war, i realize that.

    But, this sounds like a stunt (using the word "attack, that is) for attention.

    I didn't know a permit was needed to use a bullhorn in NYC.
    They're not as loud as taxi horns.

    You have not been man handled by a NYC police officer And I was related to one.

    Because I was once arrested for 'civil disobedience', in NYC. And the officer arresting me was not anything close to being gentle. He manhandled me, althought I did not resist arrest or give him any reason to do what he id. I was arrested with approximately 100 other protesters. All charges were dropped and I never even made it out of the precinct holding cell. Funny thing, I wasn't even taking part in the protest, just happen to be in the area. My uncle advised me, that the next time I walked into an area holding a protest, to turn around and make tracks. He didn't know if he should laugh or yell at me.

    NYC cops have probably seen the worst of the worst and having to round up 100 protestors probably isn't an easy job.
    My uncle advised me, that the next time I walked into an area holding a protest, to turn around and make tracks
    good advice

    My point was that you don't know whether i have or not, yet you just assumed that i didn't.

    And i do not believe that because one person manhandles, that all will do it.

    Believe me, I have a great deal of experience, professional and personal, interacting with the NYPD. And they do manhandle, even my uncle admits to it.
