12 Year Old Girl War Protester Arrested and her Mother Ticketed
In Des Moines, Iowa a 12 year old girl who went with her mother Renee Espeland to protest the war in Iraq and Afghanistan was arrested by authorities for apparently trespassing on Senator's Harkins' Office at the Federal Building in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. The following day Renee Espeland was ticketed by police for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Renee Espeland feels that what her young daughter was trying to bring awareness of to Senator Harkin was both important and of great integrity. This arrest and consequential ticketing may not be in the best interest for Sen. Harkin this may create further distrust for the government by anti-war groups and many other groups in general.
