    Details and eyewitness accounts are starting to emerge from the various Town Hall meetings.

    In Tampa, an eyewitness points out that though she arrived an hour and a half before the doors were supposed to open, she was eventually told that the meeting hall was already full. She pointed out that there was no violence outside the meeting hall, where a thousand or more opponents of the Govt Health Care scheme were locked out.


    The Tampa Bay Tribune's online site reports that the meeting was organized by Betty Reed and various public-employee unions and liberal groups. When some opponents to the Govt Health Care scheme accused the organizers of stacking the the crowd by admitting union people before ordinary citizens could get in, Reed acknowledged that those admitted early were organizers, who had been brought in ostensibly to set up the room.


    Elsewhere, in St. Louis. MO, six people have been arrested for various acts of violence. A conservative activist was attacked by some of the people later arrested, and spoke to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch from the emergency room of the St. John's Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was waiting to be treated for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face that he suffered in the attack.


    Deputy White House Chief of Staff Jim Messina met with Democrat Senators and viewed newsreel footage of some of the Town Hall meetings where conservatives voiced their opposition to the Democrats' Health Care scheme. Although it was clear that there head been no violence at any of the meetings, Messina told the Senators, "We will punch back twice as hard."


    Some photos have been released from some of yesterday's Town Hall meetings, where conservatives stood up against the constant repetition of talking points that had so little in common with the actual Health Care bills being pushed in Congress.

    See the American citizens the Democrats have been smearing as a "dangerous mob":
