Perhaps they're not the smartest but ...
So many things have happened on our little planet simply because a person refused to move or shouted an obscenity when it was not desired:
Civil Rights Movement
The fact that it isn't the first time they've done it isn't the point. If you felt passionately about something, so passionately that you felt
compelled to act in an irresponsible way that endangered your life or well being ... do you think sending you to prison is the correct answer?
That's a dangerous precedent. Members of the civil rights movement were imprisoned due to disrupting 'white-areas'. Hippies have been naked in public
as protest multiple times. It is a choice of expression.
So later on we 'decided' as the awesome force of intelligence that we are that some of these people were 'right' and the vast majority of us were
wrong. They still went to prison. Some were still shot. Some were still killed. I feel sad when I think about these things.
God forbid someone's protest that they care passionately about takes you out of your Church service for 30 minutes; does that seriously deserve a 2
year prison sentence? How many people are now afraid of similar such protests against Putin?
Read some of this:
Opposition leader Sergei Udaltsov, who was protesting in support of the band, was detained by police, while former world chess champion and a
long standing opposition member Garry Kasparov, trying to attend the reading of the verdict, was arrested and beaten.
Kasparov later had all charges dropped against him. It was bloggers and reporters that provided evidence that contradicted police's versions of
events. The police
I can only imagine the terror in people's hearts that a marauding former chess champion can inspire; thank God for the Russian police and their night
Side note: protesters have invaded political buildings before where I come from and insulted people. To my knowledge none of those removed from the
buildings did two years in prison. I think the Guardian is way out of line on this one.
