While the LP&L board collaborated inside the downtown headquarters, at street level there was the clamor of protestors with pickets and chants.

They say they want more of a voice in the management of their utility, and that they're not going away. Photojournalist Craig Iglesias caught the fervor of the crowd in this video essay.

To quote JFK "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable..." The utility board refused to listen to the people, and after the media left, used heavily armed storm-troopers to remove the citizens. Since the city council appointed the board, they are responsible for the uncivil motus operandi of the board. If the council fails to immediately remove the offending board members, they will be confirmed as accomplices of the LP&L board and staff. If the mayor and council members peacefully resign at their impromptu meeting on July 23rd, a civil turnover [aka peaceful revolution] will occur. Of course, the mayor and/or some council members may interpret president Kennedy's words as a terroristic threat, but a fearful mayor can't file felony charges against a president who was murdered over 50 years ago, or an emissary of peace who was murdered by the government about 2000 years ago. If he uses his municipal office or employment [public official] within a complaint against a private sector member of the public, then he would be in criminal violation of Article IX section 4 of the city charter by deliberately accepting a service from a person (D.A.) on terms more favorable than granted to the public. I hope the peaceful protests escalate, and the people sign more petitions to peacefully remove those in power, who are directly and/or indirectly responsible for the municipal utility fiasco, before the year 2013 comes to an end.
