Now some are physically attacking those in favor of Arizona's new law?

Three people were attacked and at least two others were arrested. The people assaulted were part of the Minutemen demonstration, a group in favor of Arizona's new immigration law.

They said a large group of immigrants' rights supporters followed them to the BART station on Market Street and started punching and kicking them, and calling them names.

"They said we were racists, and we were against them, and against their town, and against San Francisco," said Parker Wilson with the Bay Area National Anarchists. "What they were saying, they said we need to get out and called us racists, and that we need to go home. And then they just attacked my friends and me."

Those arrested will likely be charged with felony assault and robbery.

  • Physical violence is not acceptable. Makes you wonder about people like that.

  • Physical violence is not okay, no matter which side of the issue you are on. I'm personally against the law, but attacks like this make everyone look bad--there is no excuse for violence.

  • yeah, beating up those who disagree with you is the BEST way to change their minds. Studies (federally funded, of course) show that this is the most effective tool to use in order to get your point of view across to others.
