Ever hear of irony or for that matter hypocrisy?
If anyone was being obnoxious that day, it was those cops. All of them and I mean all were looking for a fight, you can see it in their faces, in
their actions and in their statements and body language. Adam did what he had to do to make his point, one that needed to be made and sometimes being
nice, getting on your knees and saying please and thank you to authoritarians doesn't quite get the job done.
Does the right to protest mean anywhere at anytime because a small group feels like doing whatever they want to a large group?
It's okay to shut down a city? Putting Thousands out of work for your cause?
It's fair to people who were on vacation and just wanted to see a statue to make a whole scene and ruin their day?
What exactly is the point? Is it reality? Do I actually want people dancing in a freaking museum when i'm trying to study a piece of art or read the
stupid plaque or whatever?
NO POLITE PERSON WOULD DO IT.... is my only actual point
The issue to me is starting to go beyond freedom and into the realm of doing whatever the hell you want whenever you want regardless of other peoples
emotions... I brought up the example of Japan, they don't let you use cell phones on the train... is that about freedom or just being annoying?
I don't think freedom includes the right to ANNOY others

Think about it, if I brought my kids to the Memorial... and they started dancing around... as a parent to TEACH my kids how to behave...if people were
starting to stare at them... my kids would get at the least "The foot up your as is coming" look from me... if they didn't stop i'm grabbing an
Are the cops wrong? Or do we raise spoiled brats that don't know how to behave in public? Even as adults?
Freedom? Not Freedom? Freedom works best when people know how to act in public like human beings....
THE COPS DIDN'T JUST ARREST TWO DANCERS.... They stepped in on a staged event... I haven't heard of anyone being arrested for dancing for real...
I've seen THIS story with a guy showing up with cameras and a crew of Yahoos and creating a distraction in public place VIA INTENT
Let me add...
If what he plans on JULY 4th...results in one child getting shot sitting in his/her house watching cartoons... they should bring back public hangings
for him You can protest and change laws without Guns...even if the law you protest is about Guns.
