Apparently they called out the local cops in full riot gear to "quell" the totally peaceful demonstration yesterday before Obama's appearance in Quincy stumping for financial reform (and where he completely mispronounced Alexi Giannoulias' last name during his 'shout out', but that's not important right now). It was really funny that all of the people were just standing there on the sidewalk watching these guys go by. They were probably embarrassed at having to walk down the street like that too.
Let's do a quick comparison between the Quincy constabulary (ht, Hot Air) and the Roman guards in History of the World Part 1....
Roman Guards (you only need the first 17 seconds of this one):
The only difference between the two is that one is a comedy and the other is a farce. You decide which is which.
