About a dozen people protesting the debt deal at the Capitol have been detained by police:
The protesters, including members of the National People's Action group, were handcuffed by Capitol Police and escorted off the premises. The suspects chanted, "Hey Boehner, get a clue, it's about revenue," as they were led away.

One male suspect was pinned to the ground by officers during the incident, yelling loudly that he was not associated with the group or the protest.

The Capitol Police have yet to comment on the number of protesters taken into custody, or what charges — if any — will be brought against them.
Good thing these dirty hippies were quickly contained before their radical ideas risked bumping against the impermeable seal of corporate servitude over the Beltway bubble.
