What say you>?
this was a national memorial where permission is required for demonstrations.
play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
if some dude wants to dance with another dude and kiss them, do so in a place that has no national sybollic honor or reverence....
my mistake, that was a woman i think he was dancing with.
man i love that song!
...What he said....
and if youre stupid enough to dance at a memorial, at least have the descentcy to put on a good show.
Looks like unlawful assembly, refusal to disperse, and refusing to follow a lawful order of a police officer.
Moron college students wanting to make a point. They did, they are tools.
Hoping for tased hippies, left disappointed.
If you can't do a decent country two-step you shouldn't be allowed to dance... simply concept, obey it.
Exceptions will be made for members of the 'greatest generation' who are allowed to perform the Jitterbug and the Lindy.
I say that the hippies knew that they couldn't dance there, and the decided to thumb their noses at the law. It wasn't like they didn't know... They went there with cameras rolling, with the obvious intent of forcing a confrontation with the police. They put the officers in a no win situation. I wish being an ***hole was a crime in of itself.
The law is the law. If they don't like it, there are ways to work within the system to get the law changed. Picking a fight with cops isn't the right way to go about it.... And let's be honest here. Looking at the people who starred this, they don't strike me as being the socially responsible type. I doubt they went there to protest an unjust law, as much as they went there just to try and make the cops look bad.
Everyone has to love code pink http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_Pink
US Park and US Capitol police arrest plenty of them every year for the same thing.
I thought that was a breast cancer organization..
Ford has a "Warriors in Pink" Mustang, that's what I was thinking of.
I'll admit I'm a little puzzled by what's going on there, the whole dancing/demonstration thing, how that's illegal and what the charges would be.
I'll give them some credit, passive resistance to protest what they feel is an unjust law is better than some other forms. Sort of the Rosa Parks of bad dancers.
Popular dancing doesn't need protection. Its the unpopular dancing that the majority doesn't want to watch that needs protection, lest none of us are free to dance badly.
Seriously though, you can see it in the officers faces, they're not happy having to enforce this sort of thing, obviously petty BS that isn't worth their time. I do feel sorry for them in this case. BUT... they don't have a choice in the matter. Its stupid to waste your energy fighting the police in this case when they're not the ones that made the rules. Take it up with the US Park Service if its a policy, or which ever entity made up the no dancing rule. I'm assuming this is a "need permission to hold a demonstration because its a memorial", and some bureaucrat ruled that dancing is a form of demonstration.
Find the root of the issue and do something useful to change that. Of course, its WAY more fun to get arrested and get your face on youtube.
ETA: I love the loudmouth guy. Obviously overheard what was going on, thought it was funny and started slow dancing with his GF. Then complains he wasn't warned when he got arrested. Sometimes being a wiseass has consequences.
The kid with the multicolored beanie on, isn't he the same one who was open carrying in Philadelphia recently?
(Geeze, has somebody quietly turned HAARP on and not told us?)
The charges would be protesting without a permit, and probably unlawful entry.
Code pink will enter a public building, usually a senate or house office building, and start singing, and doing their peaceloving hippie stuff.
That is how code pink protests.
Well ya can't fix stupid....but you can at least arrest it.....
Yet another group of "enlightened" ******bags. I'm sure their parents are proud.
I loved the "disobey" T shirt.
Saw that worn on a Larouche Youth Movement member once. I wonder if Alex Jones peddles it too?
