Nicole Sandler Arrested At Allen West Townhall
This is video of Florida progressive talk show host Nicole Sandler right before she was arrested at Allen West's townhall meeting. Sandler reportedly was maced by police while she was in jail. Raw Story fleshes out what happened.
A Ft. Lauderdale Police Dept. document detailing the arresting officer's take on Sandler's arrest has been acquired by Raw Story.
In it, officer William Rousseau claims that Sandler was told to leave the event because "her behavior caused many of the audience members to enter into a verbal altercation that threatened to become physical."
The officer also claims that he instructed Sandler to leave the premises "at least a dozen times," but that she would not. He further claimed that Sandler became "physically aggressive with this ofc., pushing me several times."
Video footage does not seem to bear that out, and Sandler clearly agreed to leave the event. She did however shout at the officer that he should not touch her, but did not appear to resist when he decided to make an arrest.
Here is a video of Sandler getting arrested. The incident starts at 3:35 of the video.
My advice to progressives going to townhall meeting is don't raise you voice at police officers. They don't care about freedom of speech and democracy. Cops will bash your head in if they think they are justified. Just calmly leave when they tell you to.
