First, from the police statement, we have the following:
A group of individuals positioned themselves on the south side of York Street near 3rd Street. This was within the area that was to be kept secure at the request of the U. S. Secret Service agents in charge of the site. Prior to the event only ticketed individuals were to be in this area; during the event it was restricted to the general public completely. Secret Service personnel requested these individuals leave the area and to go back to the north side of York Street. They did not comply. Quincy Police Department personnel made the same requests and again they did not comply. At that time the MFFT was deployed to stand post between the individuals and the site and, if necessary, remove the individuals. Once the MFFT was in place, the individuals agreed to move. Once everyone complied and the site was again secure, the MFFT returned to their staging point. No physical force was used during this deployment.Here's a screenshot from google maps facing South on York Street:
It's clear from the picture that anyone at the large building or in the parking lot would be in the space that was reserved for ticked individuals. However, we can see from both Adam Sharp and Bob McCartny's videos that they were on the South side of York St. while they were doing their tea party schtick.:
Sharp, in fact, walked all the way up to the door:
Furthermore, you can see from this screen shot that the tea partiers were on the South Side of the road when the police in riot gear arrived, which means they had not cleared out beforehand:
Former St. Louis Tea Partier James Stewart said the following recently:
To me conservativsm is about NOT BEING A VICTIM.No wonder he's sick of the St. Louis Tea Party Leadership. There's no bigger group of crybabies, whiners, and FAKE VICTIMS around!
