WTF...why do people insist on this reptilian stupidity? It makes a mockery of what is really happening in this country. Makes it easy for the media to lump those of us who are concerned about our constitutional rights appear as loony as those that subscribe to such ridiculous beliefs.

Thats the whole problem, peaceful stuff ain't working so someone or group would have to martyr themselves. The line for martyr's is very, very short, pretty much non existant.

Would you say this if this kind of public behavior was being displayed at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier?

The Thomas Jefferson Memorial is a MEMORIAL.

Park officials reserve the right to enforce policies of code of conduct.

Nothing wrong here except ding-bats demand they break long-standing rules and then when they get into trouble about they whine about it.

If you break the law...no matter how dumb the law is...and then proceed to resist arrest....your gonna get slammed. The police were acting very nice and very polite for quite some time in the video...and with the noticable edit gaps...who knows how long they were nicely asking them to stop dancing and making a scene.

This isn't a case of police brutality...it is a case of human stupidity.

It gives them a reason to smoke a fattie and talk crap about the cops,they have no life otherwise.

Isn´t this whole event made up to show how police will enforce laws that appear to be ridicolous even to themself and that you have to stand up NOW because when the situaltion gets worse it will be too late?!

...think about what the police will do when things gets realy ugly...

And I can not understand how anyone can defend those cops ...the mentality "don´t act like a jerk and the police won´t bother you" is only true until you get involved yourself somehow... and then it is to late to protest.

reminds me of this...

"when the nazis came to get the communists,
I didn´t protest
because I wasn´t a communist

when the nazis came to get the socialists,
I didn´t protest
because I wasn´t a socialist

when the nazis came to get the trade union members,
I didn´t protest
because I wasn´t a trade union member

when the nazis came to get the jews,
I didn´t protest
because I wasn´t a jew

and when the nazis came to get me,
there wasn´t anyone left to protest."

- Martin Niemöller

The United States needs to invade Wshington DC as it is an oppressive regime harboring terrorists and killers.
I believe they even have wmd's.
This little country of itself even oppresses its neighboring states and illegally incarcerates their citizens.
Jefferson was a man among men, he would have not beaten these arresting police, he would have taken care of matters.

It is disturbing to me that some of you can still defend the positions of these out of control police officers. "Can we really blame theses officers for doing their jobs?" Yes we really can. It always comes down to a choice and it always comes down to an individual and until it is a "real" robot making that choice it always will. No one makes anyone act like this. They all have the capacity to know better but many are choosing the "go along to get along" road while a very few others are taking the road less traveled by and yes it is making all the difference.

Those choosing the narrow path are suffering loss of employment, ridicule, loss of supposed friends, being blackballed out of the system but at least they are sleeping well at night for refusing to be party to the demise of this country. I know this because I did it.

If more did the right thing there would be no cost for it because "it" would be the norm and beahior like "this" would be the exception and punishable.

I appreciate the "good" men and women in uniform for doing their duties according to their oaths but I will not attempt to justify the actions of others simply because they wear a badge and carry a gun. I carry a weapon and my badge is the 2nd ammendment .

I think what's wrong here is that stupid people make these stupid laws, enforced by even stupider people. Let's face it. Nobody goes to school saying they want to be a park cop. It's because they can't do anything else of value in life, or maybe they can't find a job. Now that part isn't their fault - see stupid people above them.

People need to stand up against this stupidity. I understand cops need to do their job, but an "enlightened" cop will question what it is he is enforcing, not just bend over and act like a monkey. If I was any of those cops I'd quit my job because my ethics tells me not to arrest people for dancing and I should question what BS this is.

Do you think these people were dancing because they just felt like dancing? Or do you think they were doing it to make a scene to force the police to take action...so they can later cry about how evil the police are?

These people were acting stupid...and IMO they got what they asked for.

The tomb is a place of a dead person. Respect SHOULD be shown here, but it should not be FORCED.


The Thomas Jefferson Memorial is a MEMORIAL.


McMillan Commission: "the statues of the illustrious men of the nation, or whether the memory of some individual shall be honored by a monument of the first rank may be left to the future"


Now, do you think Mr. Jefferson would be HONORED that the government is not allowing freedom of speech and peaceful assembly at this place dedicated to his memory and all he championed?


Park officials reserve the right to enforce policies of code of conduct.


So freedoms and rights can be taken away by park officials?

Jefferson would be proud.

Long standing?

Might want to check again. A few years is hardly long standing.

Nothing wrong here except the ding-bats who support the tyranny in honor of a man who fought against such tyranny.

You fail.

They provoked a reaction, this is clear. What is more disturbing is that it was pretty clear what that reaction was going to be. All I saw was a group exercising their 1st amendment right nothing more and the message to the viewer was "You think you have a 1st amendment right?" A level of force was utilized that was not appropriate to the "threat" and that was a choice made by an individual.

What we don't see in the video is how long the police officers stood there and asked them to please stop dancing.

Would you agree that the video was edited to not show how long they were asked to stop?

What are the police supposed to do after sitting there, informing them that there is a law that prohibits this actions, and asking them to stop. What action is left?

Did you notice the women did not get body slammed? Because she put her arms behind her back and didn't act like a moron when she was told she was being arrested.

We are a nation of laws...if you don't like a law...then try to get it changed...don't try to prove that if you break that particular law for long enough that the police will eventually be forced to enforce it.

Like I said...this is just people being stupid.

Do you think Bostoninans threw tea into the harbor because they did not like tea? Or do you think they were doing it to make a point?

Those Bostonians were acting stupid, wouldn't you agree?

No, the American Revolution was a case of rich men not wanting their profits encroached on...and used the notion of "freedom" to rally the troops.


Sorry if that doesn't fit into your romanticized view of it.
