CHARLOTTE, N.C. Portraying Charlotte as an emblem of a financial system gone awry, a police-estimated 1800 chanting and sign-wielding protesters demanded reform from the DNC and President Obama Sunday as they marched through uptown.

Organizers said more than 1,000 took part, . What one organizer called a “family-friendly” march ended with few clashes between police and protesters.

Among the isolated signs of trouble: a man with large rocks in his hand, looking like he was getting ready to throw them, spotted by police on an overpass on the parade route. The man dropped the rocks and ran when officers approached, police Chief Rodney Monroe said. He has not been apprehended.

Police arrested two people during the two-hour march. Medics treated two people struggling in the 92-degree heat.

The protesters come from a coalition of more than 90 local and national groups, from Students for a Democratic Society to Veterans for Peace.

For all of them, Charlotte , the DNC and Obama is a perfect target due to it's financial reputation.
These protest groups are not conservative type Republican groups. We have the list of groups who aquired permits and will adress the leaders named if necessary. According to Charlotte police dept. there were more protests in the first hour in Charlotte than the entire RNC convention in Tampa. Seems the protesters are focused on the DNC/Obama not on the Republicans, I hope we can handle them but if not we will have other Law Enforcement come to our aid said the dept. representative.

    !000 people? That's nothing. You should have been there for Jon Stewart's rally for sanity or fear. We live in Alabama and went. There were over 300,000 people there. It was awesome. Besides, what else would you expect from a backwards rednek place like N Carolina.

    I am fed up with the vicious, vindictive, hateful, lying obstructionist party of no. Our economy has improved some and we would be much better off had the GOP helped Obama. But "no" their goal was to make sure Obama does not get a second term and the wealthy will be protected has they have been since Bush passed the tax cut which only really benefited them.

    OMG, use your spell check if you want to look educated...In West Virginia they just closed SIX more coal mines. They have bill boards stating "This is an OBAMA NO WORK ZONE", and in Ohio I heard the Obama administration would NOT allow GOD to be written on some placks of OUR fallen hero's or the Pledge of Allegiance...
    While Obama blasted Bush over the war, he also voted to fund that war with the proviso that Kenya received some of that funding. LOOK IT UP, I DID. I researched Obama's "jobs bills" and saw where Harry Reid (who is a democrate) put a stop to in the senate in 2011... I voted for Obama as my state Senator and waited to see his votes in the senate. After researching his votes, I watched all the debates; and knew he was just saying what he thought Americans wanted to hear.
    Let’s see, Obama wanted to lower the national debt, it’s now over 16 trillion. Obama wanted to lower the price of gas when it was at 2.50 a gallon, it’s now at $4.00 in Illinois. Obama wanted to close the loop holes in the "TA" programs. Not only has he NOT done that, he's just signed a 'TA' bill with Brazil and Columbia. Obama was going to post the bills on the internet before they were signed so his office would be transparent, yet he gave illegal’s amnesty without a vote. 23 million Americans...

    Who in America, or their right mind, would vote for Obama after they read this?
    Obama must really want to be a one term president! The soldiers who wake up in Walter Reed Medical Center are in Maryland, not communist China. But, under the Navy's new rules, they may not know the difference!
    After months of peeling away the military's core values, Obama's army is on the move. And this time, it has a high-value target: the Bible.
    In a memo obtained by FRC, Navy officials have announced that "no religious items (including Bibles, reading material, and/or artifacts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit." The new orders are buried in a four-page document about patient care, which an Army officer forwarded to us in disbelief!

    "Mr. Speaker, these military men and women who are recovering at Walter Reed and Bethesda have given their all for America! They've defended and taken an oath to the Constitution, and here they are. The people who come to visit them can't bring a religious artifact? They can't bring a Bible? ... A priest can't walk in with the Eucharist and offer communion to a patient who might be on their deathbed because it's prohibited in this memo from the Department of the Navy?"
    This is Obama's military, where homosexuality is celebrated and Christianity is censored; where witches are financed and crosses are scorned; where bestiality is embracedand Bibles are banned; where same-sex "weddings" are encouraged but international charity is not! After three years of ideological warfare, the Obama administration's intent is clear: to disarm the military of its biggest weapon…..FAITH!
    Regardless of Obama's agenda, there is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that empowers the government to stop family members from giving Bibles or crosses to their loved ones! And from a PR standpoint, I'm not sure the best way to boost approval ratings is by denying comfort to wounded warriors! Unfortunately for our troops, who have endured so much turmoil under the Obama administration, this is another blow!
    Hopefully, with the help of Congressman King and others, it's only a temporary one.

    Crumbs, Crumbs we say, give them all crumbs. For we are the high and mighty who makes the laws to suppress those bums. The health care we’ve given them is no good for us. Whatever we do we must try to keep their trust. We do this so they come under our rules, We teach Social Reform in the schools.

    Freedom, Freedom, take it all away. For we are the king and queen, we shall have it our way. One day their freedoms shall no longer be. If we stay in office then they will see. U.N. control will happen first. Then the One World Order they will surely curse. So many will end up having to die. Because they believed our big fat lie.

    Their pay checks will only come from the U.S. Treasury. Government jobs in the future is all there will be. We will say exactly how much will be their pay. We will control everything one of these days. It’s a long slow process this Socialist Reform. But we will control them all, even before they’re born.

    Rise UP, Rise UP, you belittled men, fight for freedom to the end. Take the power away from those who sit on high. Give them bread and water to survive. Show them it can happen to them. The high and mighty are nothing in this land, when it comes to the FREEDOMS OF MAN. So if you want to live and still be free. We must get them out of office, for free to be.

    People are finally waking up, and got sick and tired of their stuff, now Queen Pelosi has lost her crown. It's about time for Obama’s high horse to hit the ground. Keep showing them when it comes to the freedoms of man, elections are just one way to show our hand.

    Well maybe he should support more charities...I met Obama and Michelle in Libertyville Illinois when he was running for the Senate. He is a very eloquent speaker, and I made the mistake of believing him and voting for him. When I was off work, I researched the bills he signed. I watched him run in 08 and heard all his speeches. If I hadn’t looked up his senate record, I would have been as gullible as the rest of the people who believed him. Americans needed the “hope and change” because we were suffering. I didn’t vote for him, because I knew he was lying through his teeth. I hope Americans can see him for the liar he is…I would vote for anyone rather than let him get away with ruining America any more… But fear not, he just used his executive privileges to pass his "jobs bill". Without a vote and against BOTH parties.

    Charities only go so far.
    You're entitled to your opinion about the President, but I question what you may consider facts!
    I'm guessing you don't know the details of what happened with that jobs bill since you say it was rejected by both parties!
    The President's bill didn't have ANY POLICY language in it, and wasn't intended to come up for a vote, but the REPUBLICANS brought it up anyway.
    Now what would they do that for? They've never voted for anything the president was for and they KNEW no one would vote on a bill that had no policy in it! Republicans wanted make the claim, to people who don't know any better, that the bill was rejected by both parties!
    There were questionable things in President Obama's voting records, but not anymore questionable then McCain, or Ryan for that matter.
    Let not kid each other here.. Who cares if the president is a very eloquent speaker, GWB sounds like a bumbling idiot and he was elected TWICE, lets not go there.
    President Obama was the better choice than and he's the better choice now..

    edit error -
    It was the budget bill that didn't get any votes not the jobs bill...
