This is a gross violation of his civil rights. Canada must have civil rights in their country, right?

They should be arresting Bush, not Spitting the Sky. Canadian people are being let down over and over again.
Seem to be following the Usa's crappy direction towards fascism.

Shame on Canada. I saw one video about his arrest and he was tasered!

This was indeed a big read with plenty of videos...all of them good as it happens.

the problem we have in the west is that all our governments have been complicit for may years with the illegal invasions of other countries, the kidnapping of citizens and the illegal "extraordinary Rendition" to torture camps, to the allowing of torture to be carried out on these people, to holding people in concentration camps for years without either charging them or even informing them of their so called violations, to the systematic murder of civilians in many countries, to arming a military government in Israel with the express wishes to murder the unarmed civilians of Gaza....
...and so the dismal list goes on...and on...and on.

The simple fact is that ALL our governments are peopled by criminals guilty of murder and torture...All our governments have made us accessories after the fact and hence by law we are ALL war criminals...however much we plead otherwise...we have been criminalised by the likes of Bush and his cronies like the UK's Tony bLIAR, the seal murdering Harper and so on...I am not picking on your countries...just the illegal acts that are committed daily in your names...At least the US voted to get rid of Her Hitler/Bush and the UK have been trying to export Tony bLIAR ever since he handed over to Blundering Brown.

So it should be no surprise that we live in a world where these retired war criminals seek the odd 400 dollar a plate meals to pay for their expensive snorting at the peace activists...they may well laugh at us now but come the day of judgement for all my faults I'd rather be in my shoes that theirs.

Splitting the Sky asks police to go inside the Telus Centre in Calgary and arrest George W. Bush for War Crimes, Crimes against humanity and torture. They refuse. He then attempts a "citizen's arrest", but is himself, arrested. and charged with assault and obstruction. Canada hangs it's head in shame.
And well they should hang their heads
in shame! Canada committed the first crime
by allowing Bush into their country. He should
have been taken into custody by the RCMP the
instant his feet touched Canadian soil.
From this day forward, I can only consider the
Canadian government to be co-conspirators with
Bush/Cheney by NOT considering him to be a wanted man.
Thanks, Kat.

Why Bush,Puppetmaster Cheney and their minions should have been locked up for war crimes years ago...and yet this one man is arrested for suggesting such a thing? That truly IS backwards".

All power to Splitting-the-Sky, a true Canadian! Unlike those who allow their governments to prostitute themselves to the Bushco war criminals. Courage is what it takes.

I am embarrassed as a Boston Legal show said last night.... for the gross violation of freedoms, civil rights, human rights and basic respect.... not to mention the loss of Constitutional rights under the Bush cabel... We will see if this is reversed under President Obama.. So far, the war policies have continued, just in a different country, and the war profiteers are still profiteering... Has anything changed? 51% of the US budget is dedicated to war.

Only the WORST dictators and despots spend that much on violence internationally...

Ok, this is all well and good, but why only Bush? Everyone who was a member of congress at the time voted FOR the war. They should all be arrested as criminals then, not just Bush. I wish people would remember these things when they talk about Bush like he was king and the only one that could be held responsible. Those leaders went on to run for president last year and no one said a word.

The wrong person was arrested. Only to be expected, tho. I am sure this brave man, Splitting the Sky, EXPECTED to be arrested. What a WONDERFUL SYMBOLIC ACT, tho! If such a SYMBOLIC ACT happens in EVERY country Bush/Cheney arrive at.... it cannot help but make people BRAVER and MORE UNITED in EVENTUALLY prosecuting these War Criminals as they deserve to be prosecuted. Acts of NON-VIOLENT CIVIL DIS-OBEDIENCE such as this, are the way for the People of the World to show our utter CONTEMPT AND CONDEMNATION of Bush/Cheney/Rice/Rumsfeld and their acts of un-provoked aggression using military force, snuffing out and devastating so many lives in pursuit of their illegal MONETARY GAINS.

"Splitting the Sky" acted as only a true warrior will....he recognized: Bush for what he is:a three-hearted, fork-Tongued, cowardly raven without a center to his being, reviled by the Great Spirit who has never shown mercy to others.

By all rights, Canada should've given this member of the First Nations, "Splitting the Sky" a warrior's due (respect) for his correct action. Instead (no surprise here), they acted in the only way it (and the lower 49 as well) has for over 500 years, using a giant stick minus the carrot approach

BTW: The people of the Rom (re: Gypsy) have a word for those who have violated a sacred trust: "marhime!" Bush is marhime! Sken nen

Can anyone give me a good reason why George Bush should be arrested? Why is he a criminal? What laws did he violate. He is such a bad person because? He is a white male? a Republican? a Christian? An American? Has he cut anyones head off like the Islamic Fascist scum who kill for the devil? Does he blow up cars and bombs in crowds of innocent people? Has he taken womens rights away in America like the Islamic Fascist scum would if they are in power. I would love to know how you feel about Islamic Fascist scum. I don't want to here that their freedom fighters when they kill innocent people, cut heads off, give women, yes women no rights AT ALL. So if George Buch has done anything remotely like the ones I named above than arrest him.

Chris, King George is personally responsible for the deaths of millions. He hijacked the US Military into an alleged "war" on false pretenses (intentionally according to British Government documents.) Congress while not declaring war, did in fact fund the sham.They should be arrested also.

He also violated his oath of office to defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

As a matter of fact he did try to marginalize women's rights. So after your homework, please don't take my word for it, I look forward to you joining our fight for justice!

How did George Bush marginalize womens rights in this country? Give me exa mples B.S. Who are the millions he "personally killed". I know he freed hundreds of thousands of Iraqs' from a madman. He and Congress sent the military into Iraq and yes he was trying to protect us from our enemies. How many terrorist attacks have we had since 911 and how many has law enforcement stopped since 911. I wasn't for the war in Iraq but the troops have done a stupendous job there. I was also against Bush protecting the illegal aliens invading our country by not putting our military on our borders. Your right America first but the LIBS in congress don't want that to happen.

Calling Bush a pig doesn't qualify for any crimes. Obama is sending 15-30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan to commit, I guess, war crimes. Will anyone please ask for his arrest. His administration also wants to send troops into Pakistan to combat terrorism. Today, the religion of peace just killed 50 people and injured numerous others in a Pakistani mosque. Muslims killing muslims and the U.S. is the big bad country. Look at the bright side America voted in a racist and his wife named Obama.i'm sure if Barbara Bush had told a classroom full of students that when she was a child her friends teased her for talking "black" or if George went to a church for 20 years denouncing blacks he would have been lynched. I guess there's a double standard no matter what

I have been put on the Mohawk mailing list and receive regular emails. The person who writes the articles for the magazine is very angry and frustrated and, on reading the stories, I am not surprised. It takes something extraordinary for the government to notice the Native Americans, which they prefer not to do. I remember hearing on the Hollywood films that the only good Indian is a dead Indian. I'm getting the impression that the current government has a similar opinion although failing that, be quiet and go away is the next best option.

A country that is always pontificating on how it fought for freedom & democracy (only after being forced into it) appalls and irritates me because it cannot & will not treat its own people with that form of decency or courtesy. If the only way to get the government to do what is right is to arrest Bush then go for it!
