The Homer Simpson of the Revolution: D'OH!!!Flavio Sosa, whose heavyset, bearded presence became an emblem of the leftist People's Assembly of Oaxaca, was arrested late Monday in Mexico City ....
...and in his previous press portraits he appeared to be such a jolly sweet fellow.....on charges of kidnapping, robbery, and causing damages and injuries, federal prosecutors said in a press statement. The allegations were apparently related to the barricades, vandalism and irregular detentions carried out by some protesters.
Can anyone spell: C-O-W-A-R-D?...now that the tables are turned on him, he has become what all bullies become: a terrified little man. Perhaps he will turn in the rest of his friends in exchange for some sort of amnesty.......While Sosa is a member of a larger leadership council, he appeared to be largely in control of the protest movement, and police called him 'the main leader.'Sosa has downplayed his role, saying last month,'We are all equal. But my big beard and big stomach have made me become the favorite leader of the press and the police.'
Persecution?...you mean the enforcement of law and order after Sosa and HIS goon squad held a city of a half million people hostage for 6 months through intimidation and violence?...oh yeah...that was moments BEFORE he was arrested. Now, however, I am sure that he is singing a different tune, perhaps one that sounds like a squeeling pig caught between a picket fence.Just a few hours before he was detained, Sosa held a news conference in which he said he left Oaxaca to avoid the 'fierce persecution of the police and Ulises Ruiz' hit men,'
Uh-huh......More threats.Sosa said on Monday that the situation in Oaxaca could evolve into an armed conflict, something he said he hoped can be avoided.'They (authorities) could leave the people with no options. Since they are spreading hate, this could unleash itself at any moment.'
Some time behind bars is gonna do this guy a world of good. Does he and APPO not recognize all of the EVIL that THEY themselves have wrought upon the general population of Oaxaca?...I hope that the people of Oaxaca do, and will remember this for a looooong time.
