Jan Brewer Protested, 3 Arrested: Video by Dennis Gilman

Kudos to Phoenix videographer Dennis Gilman for his latest video, which captures the drama of yesterday's demonstration at the state Capitol.

There, as Governor Jan Brewer gave her state of the state speech to members of the Legislature, a coalition of activists protested Brewer's executive order denying driver's licenses to Arizona DREAMers who qualify for the federal government's deferred action program.

-Jan Brewer on Blast by DREAMers and CBA in Protest: 3 Arrested

Gilman was on the second floor of the state House lobby and captured some exclusive bird's-eye footage of the three arrests that took place, arrests I detailed in a blog item yesterday.

All three demonstrators were taken into custody, cited for trespassing and released. Likely their real "crimes" were not moving fast enough for the DPS officers clearing the lobby. That and singing too loud.

The peaceful protest rocked the joint: A successful action that earned a bucketload of media.

My favorite quote from the day is from a fired-up Randy Parraz, president of Citizens for a Better Arizona, the group responsible for the recall of former state Senate President Russell Pearce in 2011.

"They're good enough to graduate from ASU, [but] they're not good enough to apply for a driver's license?" Parraz asked of the DACA-eligible DREAMers. "That mentality has to stop."

Hell, yes. And no rest until it does.

I see a bunch of but hurt ex residents of Joe's facility's and a bunch of illegals and a bunch of people that made multiple accounts to post the same  BS propaganda the law is the law you dont like it GTFO of Arizona (and America for that matter) again Lemon's Im short on cash how much do the feds pay you to spew your pro government propaganda? By that I mean the current government, you see people like Lemon's try to make everything black and white conservative and liberal left and right he is not here to provide you with news but to divide and conquer the people and keep us to busy arguing amongst ourselves to see the government giving it to us from behind.

Two peaceful senior citizens arrested??  Let this be a warning to the retirees who live in Arizona. Its a civic duty to participate and attend the legislature -- the peoples' house.  This defies understanding.

Mr. Lemons and Mr. Gilman, A great job reporting how people are treated in Arizona. The elderly gentleman and woman being arrested made no sense. They were calm and quiet and could be anyone in Arizona. Tired of the Governor's mean-spirit and lack of common sense.

I wonder if RAF is Fox or Black? BTW.. just because RAF is at Arpaios's balls all  day doesn't mean he knows about the law...

Hey Parraz, should non-violent felons be able to possess weapons? Of course not. Same should apply to illegals. No licenses if you are illegal.  Dreamers are illegal aliens.

Begin with the illegal at White House, and go on to deporting the rest of the eastern Europeans and Africans in this country working in Resorts, Sam's Club and WalMart. Do away with gardening and construction for all the other Spanish rooted speaking languages that are occupying our country. Oh yeah, get rid of all people with European ancestry speaking that Foreign language called English.

Peaceful Protesters arrested for protesting Racist Jan Brewer who herself Defrauded Social Security of $75,000.00 to reward her Knife Piot Rapist Son as he served his sentence?!

People simply wanting to be treated as "Human Beings" by a Racist Governor, who through her close Pals Russell Pearce, and Sheriff Arpaio actually have "Strong Ties" to Racist Groups even including Neo-Nazi's!

Brown Skinned People are "Human" Governor Brewer!

To: Liberty, and Human Rights.

Way to go Dennis, I love it when people expose the truth. These politicians think they can get away with this until you get actual evidence. And even then they try to spin the truth into a lie. Great job. Lucy Babeu.

Yes,great job Dennis. I did not see a damned thing in the video that would warrant these peoples's arrest. I'm curious as to who gave the order to arrest these folks.

Great job, Dennis.  To the DPS goons in the goofy hats:  was it really necessary to handcuff two peaceful senior citizens for a low level misdemeanor that you are going to cite and release?  I guess they didn't want to break Jan Brewer's concentration while she read her entire speech.

@car_del99 You should read the law.  Arizona law clearly says that illegal aliens will not get drivers licences. And Dreamers are still illegal aliens. A drivers licence is a privilege not a right. Obama never promised Dreamers licences. Do you complende?

@JoeArpaioFan  why shouldnt non-violent felons be allowed to possess weapons? violent ones can, check the background of some of the posse members

@JoeArpaioFan When your sugar daddy busts illegals, there is a little fact that he fails to mention.  If they request a deportation hearing, that can take 3-4 years to occur, due to that back log.  During that time, the are given a work permit.  And in AZ, that work permit allows them to get a driver's licence.  It's happened about 40,000 times. (see the DMV website - what is valid ID for a DL)

@DNichols However, "Brown skinned" people here illegally are illegal aliens! That's the issue at-hand.

@JoeArpaioFan maybe you should learn to read. Dreamers have had their status changed and are here with permission, they just have to maintain and stay within certain criteria to continue to remain here with permission.

@allanbartlett Aah poor baby. It was edited.  More arrests are on the way. I just hope the protesters get violent so that cops will have probable cause to shoot them.

@WhoKnows @JoeArpaioFan No work permit comes with a drivers license. I don't know where you got your info from but you are wrong. There should have never been a Dream Act to begin with.

@JoeArpaioFan @lucyababeu ,when you speak, don't use we, it is just you, JAF, and is far as the truth goes, you have no idea what that word means. You are the one that does not understand anything except smelling Arpaio's, and beleive me, he is not a fan of yours. Like I said before, he only likes dogs. And dogs have more respect for people then you. You are just plain stupid. Lucy Babeu

 @JoeArpaioFan  what we dont understand is why you keep calling dream act people illegal aliens.  even Brewer is saying they have attained permission to be here, she is saying she wont give them licenses though. she is not saying they are illegal dumbass, she is just saying she wont give them state I.D.

@JoeArpaioFan @Bnbk , Bnbk see things clearly, you see Arpaio everytime you look at something, so he is not blind, you just see Arpaio, Arpaio, Arpaio. Your vision is just double, so if you want to keep looking at the vidio, you are going to see the same thing, Arpaio, Arpaio , Arpaio. You are blind. Take your blinders off and maybe JAF you might see something beside Arpaio and your love for him. Lucy Babeu.

@danzigsdaddy"then you must be saying there are a lot of people out there who are stupid enough to catch cancer like you would a cold, because thats one of the tip offs that its the same guy." You do realize that this sentence truly makes no sense whatsoever, with your logic of what constitutes proof of multiple accounts then you could come to the conclusion that we are both the same person i called you a idiot you insulted me in turn in short your logic is flawed.

danzigsdaddy
danzigsdaddy topcommenter

@badcaseaa you couldnt be further off base.  i am definitely not pro-illegal and i only use one account. if you are laying the claim that people like Tellis and JoeArpaioFan are not using multiple accounts, then you must be saying there are a lot of people out there who are stupid enough to catch cancer like you would a cold, because thats one of the tip offs that its the same guy. and you are correct in your claim that you have half a brain though

 @tellis   you are aware that misrepresenting yourself is illegal and there are internet laws about what you are doing right? having your one screen name agree with your other screen name doesnt lend credence to your argument either

 @tellis   if they were illegal, they wouldnt have been reclassified as dream act, nice try JAF
