Police Brutality and Arrest for Dancing in Public

Adam Kokesh host of Adam Vs. The Man and several other activists were assaulted and arrested by police thugs this weekend for quietly dancing in public. Following a ruling by US district Judge John D. Bates denouncing dancing at the Jefferson Memorial, the group decided to silently celebrate their freedom by strutting around while wearing headphones and were then violently arrested by some power-tripping, freedom-hating, agents of the state. Adam and the others are out of jail now and planning another dance party at Jefferson Memorial for next week.

I can see both sides to this argument.

You can't defecate anywhere you like.There are laws. Yet, money is considered a form of free speech but dancing isn't? I do feel it's a frivolous law.

Another and even more distributing video is this one.

Organ harvesting?

Who is responsible for that frivolous and extreme law?

Conservative Judge John Bates, appointed by President George W. Bush in December 2001

In his opinion, Judge John Bates wrote:

““The purpose of the memorial is to publicize Thomas Jefferson’s legacy, so that critics and supporters alike may contemplate his place in history… The Park Service prohibits all demonstrations in the interior of the memorial, in order to maintain ‘an atmosphere of calm, tranquility, and reverence… Prohibiting demonstrations is a reasonable means of ensuring a tranquil and contemplative mood at the Jefferson Memorial,”

So we can burn the flag but not dance in front of the Jefferson memorial,OK.
