    Breaking: Violence at Tampa health care forum
    Edited on Thu Aug-06-09 07:45 PM by Are_grits_groceries
    Tampa, Florida - Angry protesters and strong supporters are clashing inside and all around a health care reform town hall meeting in Downtown Tampa. The meeting which was scheduled to begin at 6:00 at the Children's Board of Hillsborough County drew hundreds of people who quickly began to overwhelm staff and event organizers at the front entrance.

    As the building filled to capacity, angry protesters stuck outside began to scream, yell, and chant. At one point, those trying to get inside began banging on windows as Tampa Police officers quickly spread out guarding all entrances.

    10 Connects photojournalist Kevin Carlson, currently inside the meeting reports at least one fist fight breaking out inside. Some other journalists remain outside.

    Democratic Congresswoman Kathy Castor and State Representative Betty Reed were hosting the event.

    UPDATE 7:13pm

    Police on bullhorns are trying to break-up the crowd outside the building on 1002 E. Palm Ave.

    Many in the crowd are refusing to go.

    UPDATE 7:26pm

    The health care forum has ended before it started. People inside are being told to go home.
    No one has stated, (that I can see) that there are anything but concerned Americans voicing their disapproval to an unpopular policy...

    4. Simple then, prosecute for inciting a riot.
    Which ones? Electees or electors?

    6. This is the state of political discourse in America.
    These right wingers are so degenerate that they'd rather resort to violence because they can't make a good case against extending health care coverage to more Americans.
    Really? Is that why more and more Americans are opposing it?

    Go read the rest of these posts, its quite entertaining....;)

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    I love this remark in comments; it took Obama 6 months to pick a dog. Why does this health care have to passed in a couple of weeks?

    These left wingers are so degenerate that they'd rather resort to violence because they can't accept that President George W. Bush won the 2000 and 2004 elections fair and square
    Fixed.

    Hypocrites. All of them.

    Seems the Moonbats don't like a taste of their own medicine.

    Now they want protesters arrested for disagreeing with the State.
