Nancy Pelosi and the Case of the Deadly Cigarette

WeAreChange confronted Nancy Pelosi at a recent book signing. After the confrontation, a police officer illegally holds a backpack belonging to one of the activists, and illegally requires the man’s identification before returning his property. The men repeatedly assert their rights to no avail. It culminates in the men yelling from the sidewalk, being assaulted, and the officer calling in backup. It is decided to finally return the backpack to the man and at the very end we get a hint of what goes on in the mind of some police.

The officer hints at his ability to frame the activists, taunting them by claiming the cigarette one of them is smoking is a “weapon”. Seriously, he called it a weapon, “absolutely”. Watch the video.
