Tucson - protests / police + SWAT active & on the move!

From Rusty Young Man a OCDO member on the ground in Tucson (driving through:

"Hands up don't shoot" protest here in Tucson may get ugly. Police out in force; just saw an armored truck (new SWAT toy, I imagine) and an armored Humvee headed their way."

From Rusty:
Just so they may steer clear of the area of Speedway blvd, between 4th Ave and the Freeway.

Seems my work kept me too insulated from the outside world this past week.:( Watching the local news, it seems Phoenix has also had its "Hands up, don't shoot!" rallies.

As others have mentioned, this (national?) effort seems quite coordinated. At any rate, the crowd seemed to be large enough to temporarily shut down several intersections near the UA as it moved along. Was told the Tucson one started at University Blvd, then began marching westward.

Hopefully no one has been hurt, though some altercations between protestors and counter protestors have been reported.

I'd also like to thank FreeInAZ for posting this, since I was unable to at the time.:)
