Police assaulting Paul delegates
Latest development is police thugs are showing up at conventions and giving beat downs to elected delegates who are known Ron Paul supporters, then tossing them in jail so they can't participate as delegates.
This is the sort of tactics Romney uses.

Here's an account from one of the delegates about what went down:
> Just got back from the convention. Here is a quick summary. 2 days before the convention the LAGOP sent supplemental rules to the delegates and an affidavit that had to be notarized (if running for National delegate) and returned by 9:45 am the day of the convention. Needless to say the supplemental rules were made to thwart democracy (and included items that the delegates could not elect a chair, etc.). The meeting convened and within a minute a person asked for a point of information to define what would be a quorum or majority vote. The chair (Villere) answered it was to be 3/4. Then a person stood (the chair for our District) and tried to be recognized by the chair. The chair refused to recognize the delegate standing and was trying to pass the credential and rule reports as fast as possible and without any participation. I believe the chair even stated there could be no discussions or objections. Another person rose to be recognized by the chair and stated that he was elected as the Chair to the rules committee - not the person presented at the podium. The person at the podium tried to continue to discuss the rules report as the person on the floor stated he was the Chair for the Rules committee. Villere (still acting as chair) asked sergeants of arms to remove the man on the floor from the convention. He was removed rather harshly and was hurt. Then someone made the motion to elect Alex Helwig as our new chair, which passed by a majority of the votes with all the delegates participating. At that point we turned our chairs around to face the newly elected chair and began to conduct business including roll call. Villere asked that the microphone we were using be turned off. The assembly of delegates indicted he was no longer chair and had no authority. Villere asked the police to step in and remove the chair and take the microphone. At that point the police were very forceful with the man. He stated he was handicapped (had a hip replacement) but they shoved him and he was on the ground until the medics came. We then elected another chair to the convention and finished all business electing delegates. Believe it or not, it was rather peaceful in some aspects. We continued to conduct our business and felt very successful. Many folks had camera phones for added documentation. I believe we followed all the rules, elected our chair by a majority of votes and elected the national delegates. All Ron Paul supporters were well dressed, respectful, and I believe did a great job. I believe it would be very difficult for our delegates to be unseated for any reason. The LAGOP already posted their version on their website.

Another view of the assault and battery upon the elected chairman:
Also notice that police were trying to confiscate people's cell phones who videotaped the assault, demanding to see press credentials.

Summary. There's this neo-con neo-nazi Romney sycophant called Roger Villere, Chairman of the Louisiana Republican Party. Unrepentent Bush, Bankster, and Big Business supporter.
The convention elected Alex Helwig as Chair of the Convention’s Rules Committee. Villere the Villian tried to then declare by imperial edict that his buddy would be the Chair, not the elected chair Alex Helwig. The elected chair Alex Helwig started to address the delegation. Villere the Villian then ordered police to arrest elected chair Alex Helwig and remove him from the delegation, in an act of fascism not seen since Hitler pulled the same stunt when getting himself declared Fuhrer - Herr Hitler controlled the police and would order them to assault his political enemies. Since there was no rule of law, only a rule of obedience to Mein Fuhrer, that tactic worked - in Louisiana just as it worked in Nazi Germany.
So while the police were dragging Alex Helwig out, the delegates quickly voted to elect a convention chairman. Henry Herford, Jr. won, almost unanimously. Villere then declared himself to be convention chairman, citing divine right to rule as emperor, and ordered the police to arrest Henry Herford, Jr. Police assaulted the old man Henry Herford, Jr., who has a medical condition. Police then wrestled Herford to the ground and dislocated his hip.
Police refused to accept complaints of brutality and attempted to confiscate all cameras present and threatened to arrest those who refused to give their cell phones to police. The videos that were uploaded last night survived because they were live streamed to youtube before the phones were confiscated.

Those people need to remember that after the rEVOLution takes control of America, traitors will be the first ones dealt with for their treason against the Constitution and the Founding Fathers.
