Astrodome Lockdown Allegation

Boing Boing links to this account of a Lockdown in the Astrodome:

They locked out the people out of the dome, evacuees and volunteers. we have not had volunteers able to come in all morning. people just screaming broke into the gate to get in and all the people and volunteers ran into the dome. hundreds, at least 200 or 300 people started pushing in. no one was on the other side of the locked gate, no traffic no guards, etc. my volunteer guy telling the story from the human rights campaign ran in too. finally one police officer tried to corral people and push them back out. and in ffact everyone was pushed out. except my guy who pretended he had been in all along. and the people who had been in were pushed out and locked out.

No reliant empolyees, no one , no officers, no one to ask, people screaming and panicking, locked out of what is now their home, their kids are in here, etc. no one in the dome knows what is happening.

If our fellow citizens are being locked into a large cage, this is pretty serious stuff.

Just wait until someone dies for lack of medical attention because they were locked in or the EMT were locked out…

    IT IS A SHOW OF FORCE. AND TO LET EVERY ONE KNOW WHO IS BOSS. ALSO THAT IS THE WAY YOU TREAT ANNIMALS.
    YOU KNOW ISRAEL NEVER OFFERED ANY AID TO AMERICA. BUT WE THE TAX-PAYERS ARE SENDING THEM BILLIONS EVERY YEAR, AS TRIBUTE.–ALL BECAUSE OF DUAL CITIZENS.

    WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE IS PROTEST THAT NO DUAL CITIZEN SHOULD HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE.
