No arrests at Allen's office

The cops told the Portland Press Herald they didn't want to "waste" time and jail space if the charges were just going to be dropped; but WGME (Channel 13) has a different take, saying US Rep Tom Allen didn't want to press charges against the protestors. (WGME wins honors for best headline: "Grandmother Handcuffed at Allen's Office" - we can't imagine Allen's too happy with that one.)

'GME also says that Allen agree to meet with the protestors in private. Maybe then they can persuade him to hold a public meeting and face his constituents, which is what they were asking him to do last night.
