So much for those dangerous radicals

St. Paul will not prosecute 323 arrested on last day of GOP convention

The St. Paul city attorney's office said today it is declining to prosecute 323 people arrested on the Marion and Cedar street bridges Sept. 4 as part of the Republican National Convention protests.

That totals about 82 percent of the 396 people rounded up during those protests on suspicion of unlawful assembly or presence at an unlawful assembly.

Well, at lest Sheriff Fletcher reached his goal of 800 arrests. And that's what mattered most, it seems.
