Arlington, Va (AP) - Anyone who joins Sunday's Nine-Eleven memorial Freedom Walk without registering could be arrested.
Pentagon officials tell The Washington Post that the route from the Pentagon to the Mall will be lined with four-foot-high snow fencing. US Park Police will keep out interlopers. Hundreds of officers will patrol the route on foot, horseback, motorcycles and in a helicopter.
Park Police Chief Dwight Pettiford says anyone who joins the march or the subsequent concert on the Mall without a permit and refuses to leave will be arrested. The media will also won't be allowed to join walkers on the route.
Police have approved a permit from a small group of protesters that plans to stand along Independence Avenue.
Walkers have until 4:30 p.m. Friday to register online at www.asyfreedomwalk.com. There is no walk up registration.
Needed: a group of about one to two hundred "average looking Americans" (housewives, grannies, men in business suits) to just show up at the "Freedom March" unregistered. Remember to bring flags!
Also needed: several cameras to film the ensuing attempts to stop Americans from exercising their freedom to march in the "Freedom March".
