Codepinkers were out at the White House on Saturday mingling with the diverse crowds
to get a pulse from the people regarding the upcoming presidential debates.We filmed a dozen
people as a way to involve the public in the process.
We witnessed a Muslim family walking around in Lafayette park like so many tourists
do each day in Washington D.C. and suddenly several branches of the police force were
taking notice of a Muslim woman in full attire.
The bicycle police surrounded this family for over 35 minutes while a family spokesperson
showed I.D. ..........it seemed to be a waste of time but clearly a fear based policy.
It sure put me on alert watching the police overreact!
