Small Town to arrest President Bush?

Now this story takes us off the beaten path a bit.

Brattleboro residents will vote at town meeting on whether President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should be indicted and arrested for war crimes, perjury or obstruction of justice if they ever step foot in Vermont.

The Brattleboro Select Board voted 3-2 Friday to put the controversial item on the Town Meeting Day warning.

According to Town Clerk Annette Cappy, organizers of the Bush-Cheney issue gathered enough signatures, and it was up to the Select Board whether Brattleboro voters would consider the issue in March.

Cappy said residents will get to vote on the matter by paper balloting March 4.

Kurt Daims, 54, of Brattleboro, the organizer of the petition drive, said Friday the debate to get the issue on the ballot was a good one. Opposition to the vote focused on whether the town had any power to endorse the matter.

Seems some folks of Brattleboro, Vermont in the good old U.S.A are actually discussing whether or not they will arrest President Bush and Vice President Cheney if they happen to wonder through their little town.


I looked up the place on the internet and from the pictures it looks like a very nice quaint town of 12,000+ . Picturesque, one of those small towns you think about getting away to.

Now I don't believe for one minute this is more than a small group of individuals pushing this absurd idea, but I get a little scared when I hear that the law enforcement of the town is for this petition.

Come on peoples!
