PORTSMOUTH — A half-hour after he was detained by a police officer for being "unruly" in front of a downtown bar Thursday night, Channing Martin threw a rock at the rear of a parked and marked police cruiser, reducing the back window to piles of shattered glass.
After he said he understood, Martin was fined $500, ordered to pay $568 in restitution to repair the cruiser window and to serve ten days in jail. Where are the civil rights groups? He was merely protesting just like the Arabs in Israel.
