Assistant St. Paul Police Chief Matt Bostrom said that demonstrators outside the Republican National Convention in September won’t be confined to fenced-in areas.

"The city of St. Paul is a free-speech zone," Bostrom said. "I say that proudly. I was disappointed when I saw what Boston did (in handling protesters at the 2004 Democratic Convention). I don’t understand this idea of putting people in a pen someplace so they can express themselves. That’s not the way we will do things."
