Losers: Anti-Blackwater protesters lose appeal in court
A jury denied the appeal of a group of beatnik protesters who trespassed on Blackwater land and vandalized property in order to make a political statement. The group was convicted in October; a judge closed the trial to the public because the radicals wanted to turn his courtroom into a propaganda show. WRAL-TV of Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, has the story.
