Respectful?


What better way to RESPECT the man who championed the right to demonstrate by demonstrating (considering dancing is a form of demonstration now, thanks to some nut judge).

I think you have delusional Tunnel Vision.

You're only seeing one immediate thing. Not the later consequences.

Oh god, the horror! Someone might do the jig, on public property no less! When will this madness end? The insanity! What next?


Or bring their boom boxes and do street dancing.

Personally I don't care - - - but what someone does in a quiet respectful way - - the next person won't - - it will only escalate.

Then what? The Doo-wah parade?

When self-entitlement infringes on the rights of others - - it is pure selfishness. It has nothing to do with constitutional rights. Just selfishness.


Yep how about people texting constantly, people talking loud on cell phones, obese women wearing tight clothes, people with loud uncontrollable kids, rude people etc etc all that stuff aggravates me and a lot of other people. Should we make laws to stop everything others might find annoying?

Dancing and bringing a boom box are different. A boom box can be considered a noise violation or disturbing the peace. But that is a mute argument as all the dancers were neither loud or obnoxious last week. They did nothing that was interfering with anyone enjoying the monument.

How about this, I dont want any cameras taking pictures of the monument while im there flashes annoy me.

Now who is selfish?

"Freedom of expression is not allowed at the Jefferson Memorial"

I wonder what Jefferson would think about such things...

You do realize what you are saying?

"This particular group of dancers were neither loud or obnoxious"

So does that mean we need a law to restrict type of dancing? Because who knows what the next group will do.

And of course - most people like music when they dance. So do we restrict boom boxes because they are loud? Sorry - - that takes freedom away from those who dance to that type music.

So what are the later consequences of our right to demonstrate, Annee?

Oh man those latest videos are great! I love the freedom dances. Good for them. Hope I'm out there someday and can join in. I went to a memorial yesterday, the Korean memorial wall in the city, and people were having picnics and kids were running around. So much happiness going on, on a beautiful sunny day. No one was disrespecting. It's all good. I have no complaints about what I saw in those videos and saw nothing disrespectful.

Or veterans who fought and died to keep the freedoms we have here.

At the start i could swear i see a few moments in the cops eyes along the thinking lines of "oh please just go away so i dont have to do this"

lets not blame the cops completly for having to adhear to these clearly insane 'laws', thats not to say i didnt feel sick by the whole vid, much like the one recently where a guy was gunned down by cops and another forced at gun piont to surrender his phone.

USA, whats going on guys?

Seems more like just SA these days

Surely if nobody who are supposed to enforce the rules bother to enforce them,

Then there are none.

Look at Canada and marijuana laws for your evidence. Most officers will just confiscate the marijuana and leave it at thats, provided they aren't trafficking.

Individuals in law enforcement have a choice. These ones are violent egoists that know nothing about the country that they 'serve' or what it is about.

Hey Annee

Without law and all, what is your personal feeling about silent dancing?


I am not against the dancing. However - with no restrictions - then what.

If you make restrictions on the type of dancing - - that's a law.

Ask yourself what comes next.


No man must tell another how to behave. If you put no restrictions on dancing, indeed then what? People are not animals, or stupid?

You can not restrict man, law does not matter. Revolt, and disobey, its about your freedom.

What comes next? A world wide second generation flower power time. Its time we take back full control, and.... see from there


Ask yourself, why did you came forth in this world?

(This movie is bannend in the US en EU, to much for them)

It doesn't matter that they went there to test the new law...it's the fact that the law got passed in the first place! We American's are so goddam complacent it's not funny. We will pass the viral video around and swear at the TV, but geez...you actually want me to DO something? Have you lost your mind? This is why we are where we are. Lazy ass, look the other way, take care of me welfare, socialist, MSM guzzling bunch of pu**ies!!! Here's a novel idea, got your sugar loaded head out of your lazy fu***ng ass and make a statement! Get involved! Protest! Create civil disobedience! Your freedoms and possibly your life depend on it!

Anyone who disagrees with this can pack their pansy ass bags and move out of MY patriot blood stained country at any time! I'll even buy you the ticket!

There's gotta be more to the story. If they had the full event on tape, then it would bring more clarification if it was just the police being overly brutal for no reason. But right now, I don't trust these videos to be the whole story.

Yeah. I probably should. Usually do, just came back from a short hiatus from ATS and have a lot to read through. Will make amends.

I think it is wrong to be dancing at a memorial, if dancing should be allowed then should'nt styles like break dancing be allowed? Its like people who would say classical music is ok but if I were to go and play drum and bass they would think it is offensive.

wow these police are a disgrace their masters as well but in America?? im so sick of seeing all the police brutality in this country, dont take the job if it scares you so much. they have forgoten they are(or at least were) human beings much less Americans. wow? pathetic i used to feel sympathy for the police when they got killed or hurt now i just assume they deserved it.even if they didnt they probably stood by and watched. my animosity towards the popo grows daily. when i hear their side of a story i assume the police are lying in order to save their jobs.a bunch of overpaid turds fill their ranks and real cops better clean their own house soon. there will be repocusions eventually and sadly the few(if any still left) real cops will sometimes pay the price. those who did/filmed this are heroes and showing you the real truth about this country(leave out the o) and what it has become. i hope they sue and win millions of our tax dollars id rather see it go to them then the uber popo state. wanna hurt the police? lobby/vote/fight to abolish unions for public servants THIS is a nation of invidualls where individual freedoms and rights ar gauranteed by a constitution ! they should be reminded of that by removing their collective barganing/ group political power.

While I do think the cops over re acted, the idiots from code pink there knew they were instigating and brought along a camera to catch it on film. Again, I thinks the cops were a little heavy handed, but I will admit to smiling watching people from code pink being treated like that, it did my heart good.

It's a shame that when protesters have real and valid complaints they come across very badly, looking at times somewhat less than sane.
