Granny Peace Brigade goes on Trial Today

Yep, a group of 80 and 90 year olds, some of whom are great-grandmothers are going on trial today, as a group for disturbing the peace while demonstrating against the war.

The defendants, some supporting themselves on canes and walkers, entered the small courtroom that was packed with about 75 supporters. They are each charged with two counts of disorderly conduct stemming from an October 17 protest against the war in Iraq outside the Times Square military recruiting station.

They are being tried as a group before Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Neil Ross. There is no jury.

Yep, those grannies are the heart of terrorism huh?
