Morning Poll: How Many People Will Get Arrested Protesting SB 1070 Today?
Judge Susan Bolton's made her decision regarding the SB 1070 injunction, and nobody seems too thrilled about it -- on either side of the debate.
Both sides are declaring victory -- in some sense -- while the real winner seems to depend on whom you ask, or the radio station to which you listen.
Protesters say they plan today to make much of downtown Phoenix resemble a slightly lighter shade of Selma, Alabama, in 1965 -- most likely sans water cannons and police dogs. But there will be arrests.
We've already spoken to one protester who says he plans to be arrested as an act of civil disobedience, and we're fairly confident he's not the only one.
Two protesters already were detained after hanging an anti-SB 1070 banner off a crane in downtown Phoenix. Check it out here.
So, in our best attempt to play the role of bookie, we want to know how many people you think will be arrested while protesting today. We'll even give you the over/under, which will be conservatively set at 12.5 people.
Vote -- and see the results of yesterday's poll -- below.
Yesterday's poll question (which was made irrelevant by about 10:30 a.m., thanks to Bolton's early announcement): Will Judge Rule on SB 1070 Injunction Before Tomorrow?
- 73 percent said yes.
- 27 percent said no.
