11:42 AM PT — Tulsa PD says the woman in the “I Can’t Breathe” shirt — Sheila Buck — was arrested for obstruction after she refused to the leave premises on her own accord … and after campaign staffers told her to scram.
The department writes, “This morning at 11:30 am Tulsa Police were requested by Trump Campaign Staff to remove an individual from the secure area of the rally.
They add, “Tulsa Police spoke to the arrestee, Ms. Buck, for several minutes trying to convince her to leave on her own accord. After several minutes requesting her to leave she continued to refuse to cooperate and was escorted out of the area and transported to booking for obstruction.”
Tulsa PD finishes by saying, “For clarification, the arrestee had passed through the metal detector area to the most secure area of the event accessible only to ticket holders. Whether she had a ticket or not for the event is not a contributing factor for the Tulsa Police in making the arrest. Officers at the location, particularly in the “Sterile” area, will remove individuals only at the direction of Campaign Staff.”
In other words, it looks like Tulsa PD is working with the campaign staff to make sure things go exactly how the President wants them to … AKA no dissenters, and no protests.
Tulsa police just did something that does not bode well for a peaceful protest …. they arrested a woman wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” shirt for trespassing — despite the fact she had a ticket to Donald Trump‘s rally.
Sheila Buck was taken into custody by a group of cops as she sat and protested Saturday night’s rally.
She was locked in a standoff with cops for 8 minutes, when police decided they had enough and dragged her away in cuffs.
Check out the video of Sheila before she was arrested … tensions are fast-approaching a boiling point.
It’s unclear if the cops are following through with Trump’s threats Friday, when he tweeted, “Any protesters, anarchists, agitators, looters or lowlifes who are going to Oklahoma please understand, you will not be treated like you have been in New York, Seattle, or Minneapolis. It will be a much different scene!”
Seems like the President wants a repeat of the scene outside The White House a few weeks back, when protesters were gassed and shot at with rubber bullets so Trump could nonsensically hold a bible in front of an historic church.
