The purpose is to encourage an open dialogue and address issues.
When it comes to demonstrations, open communication with those who plan on demonstrating is critical to the public safety.
The building up of trust with these groups enables us to understand their intent, to plan accordingly, and to explain to them the law and what the parameters are with law enforcement.
We work with our federal, state, and local partners who work events with us and share public safety information.
The purpose of the meeting with the person in question you asked about was to facilitate good communication and understanding of the group’s plan, our response, and the parameters within which we would work to protect the public and enforce the law.
Their demonstration was met with our public safety plan, and the result was no law violations, no arrests, and a safe public.”

CBS News reports that the AARP’s dance with ObamaCare has produced real results for the senior advocacy group — really bad results. Over 60,000 members have left the AARP, angered by the group’s support for Barack Obama’s health-care reform efforts and silence on cuts to Medicare that will pay for them. Many have joined a new group with a more conservative outlook on health-care reform:...

Tens of Thousands Don't Like the Health Care Overhaul. CBS News has learned that up to 60,000 people have cancelled their AARP memberships since July 1, angered over the group's position on health care. Elaine Guardiani has been with AARP for 14 years, and said, "I'm extremely disappointed in AARP." Retired nurse Dale Anderson has 12 years with AARP and said, "I don't wanna be connected with AARP." Many are switching to the American Seniors Association, a group that calls itself the conservative alternative as CBS News Investigative Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports.

About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday - the latest incident in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president.

President Obama recently stretched the truth by saying that the AARP supports his "Obamacare" plan. Some seniors are concerned about the likely, inevitable "rationing" of socialized medicine which would ensue from the Democrat's plan. See video:

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel

From a Grand Junction resident: Obama In Grand Junction CO Well I'm sure you have heard the Western Slope is being subjected to a visit from White house royalty. If ever there was a mockery of Tax payers' money it is this one. I turned on Fox News around 4:30 to catch some of it. I could only manage to watch one thundering round of standing ovation. Talk about a staged showing. They are using our largest High School for the so called Town Hall meeting. As of last night NO ONE was allowed in the Bookcliff mountain range. That is the mountain range that borders our Airport. As of a certain time they will totally closing down the business loop of I-70 and it will remain closed until they have him out of here. State Police are everywhere. The Conservative Alliance held a huge rally in one of our parks this morning at 10 a.m. We went to it. I am guessing there was close to 3-4 thousand there. They had many speakers. One was Josh Penry, who will be running for

  America and its freedom is about to be destroyed.. We are now faced with the loss of our sovereignty, and lose what little freedom we have left. And now I read that there is a new bill to prevent political dissents from owning guns, the bill is HR 2159. This bill is being pushed by the GOP rep Peter King of New York and has the support of a number of other members of the GOP. Peter King is also being supported by 9/11 Families For a Secure America. 911 Families For a Secure America also is in support of other programs aimed at destroying our Liberties.Programs that were designed by the DHS such as the E-Verify and The Real Id Act both which promise security at the expense of liberty, we were warned about giving up our liberties for the promise of security 243 years ago.

For a long time people have been asking why Americans are not up in arms, screaming and shouting about their fast disappearing liberties along with the continuous passage of legislation that they vehemently oppose, from the banker bailout, to the cap and trade bill, to Obamacare. Well now they are screaming and shouting – and if the momentum continues to build, this rebellion could the spark to ignite the second American revolution.

For those waiting for a “summer of rage” it has now arrived – outraged Americans across the country are exercising their first amendment rights to do the most American thing imaginable – speaking truth to power through non-violent civil disobedience.

At first the establishment left media attempted to attack the credibility of the protests by claiming that they were the work of health insurance company lobbyists – but when that fizzled after ABC News reported

As so-called journalists negatively depict town hall meeting protesters as an organized angry mob (or worse!), they seem to forget how throughout most of this decade while George W. Bush was president dissent was quite encouraged. As an example, try to guess who said this in 2003? I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.

Butler Shaffer for

My understanding of history, economics, and the laws of causation, have long led me to expect the present collapse of Western Civilization. I did not, however, anticipate the culture experiencing a free-fall into an awaiting black-hole. Like T.S. Eliot, I suspected Western society would end "not with a bang but a whimper." I envisioned a more gradual decline, one to which individuals could make the necessary adjustments in their lives that would lessen the impact and help to restore societal order.

The symptoms of our decline-and-fall are becoming increasingly evident even to those who, not so many years ago, regarded the outcome of an American Idol contest as the most pressing concern. A public-opinion-poll mentality substitutes for thinking in our modern world, creating a collective mindset that insists upon instantaneous answers to questions that few people are capable of asking. As the processes of causation play out the inexorable consequences
