George Clooney was arrested today outside of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington DC for standing up for human rights. Clooney was protesting the treatment of the Sudanese people, and in particular the government's refusal of food and aid to those living in the Nuba Mountains area of the country. Clooney's journalist father Nick Clooney was also arrested, as was Martin Luther King III.

George has been a supporter of this issue for many years, and unlike many celebrities, he actually knows what he's talking about and is genuine in his efforts. Good for him.
I have to wonder though, how did the cop feel when s/he put the "cuffs" on him? Here is one of the most famous actors in the world, well liked and respected, standing up for those without a voice, trying to do the right thing in a peaceful manner, and you have to shut him down. I guess it's part of the job, and I feel like Clooney would have no hard feelings against the cop. I think I'd feel like a chump.
