Anti-Drone Protest Draws Police Attention
Protesters against drone warfare were back complete with their scale model of the flying weapon at the 12 Corners in Brighton on October 24.
They were joined by a group of student reporters from Rochester Community Television (RCTV)
The protesters and video crew drew the attention of students from the nearby schools.
The action also drew a visit from the Brighton Police, despite the fact that the event organizers had permission from both the town supervisor and police chief.

Apparently police were called because one or more residents found the protesters' signs depicting children maimed and killed by US drone strikes offensive.
Why are residents of Brighton and elsewhere offended by pictures of killed children, but not by the killings themselves? Instead of calling police they should be calling their Congresspersons, Senators and the White House demanding that the killing of the innocent be ended.
