The first day of the August 2010 Alaska State Fair in Palmer, Alaska brought out Sidney Hill, a disabled veteran, who was peacefully displaying a large "Impeach Obama" sign. Minutes later a crowd assembles, security forces arrive, an Alaska State Trooper arrives, and Mr. Hill is physically assaulted, taken to the ground, handcuffed, detained, arrested and hauled off to jail.
Mr. Hill was charged with Assault, Disorderly Conduct, and Criminal Trespass.
Watch this video and form your own opinion about whether or not Mr. Hill was doing anything that should have resulted in his arrest.
Or was it the "Impeach Obama" sign that was his downfall?
People in attendance at the fair stated that Mr. Hill "was just walking around" and he "was peaceful until security personnel came after him."
Here's The Video - You Decide. Note the heavy set security officer who continues to sit on Mr. Hill after he has been handcuffed and subdued.
Warning, some of the language is a little rough.
