I guess people who get arrested for asking a simple question doesn't bother you... I feel much safer now.

The link isn't working for me, so can you provide me with some more information related to this?
Who was arrested?
Where was he arrested/where did he ask the question?
What question did he ask?
What was he physically doing before, during, and after the question he asked?

It's quite obvious nobody was arrested because they asked a question. Pehaps you could explain the real reason why the arrest was made.

Have any "credible" news sources reported this incident?  By that I mean CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Reuters, AP, FOX NEWS, MSNBC, various newspapers....

It seems to me that if this was an arrest over a mere "question", the media would be all over it, especially the left-leaning ones such as CNN, The NY Times etc.

Any links?


Homer, I just saw your post pop up before mine, but you echo my sentiments exactly!

THIS is what biased Infoboy is referring to. It happened in 1998 and pretty much turned out to be much to do about nothing.

What bothers me, infoboy, is that there are people as mis-informed as you.

I read that article.  He said he was charged and the matter dropped by a judge.   His own telling of events never mentions being arrested.  He was charged and the charges dismissed.  Not arrested.  

I guess I am missing something here? huh.gif

  laugh.gif @ Magik for calling him Infoboy
Thanks for the link Magik original.gif
By his own admission, the man was "charged with a class B misdemeanor for disrupting a public meeting."
So it had nothing to do with asking a question, but instead it's about disrupting a public meeting.

I don't know why the link didnt work,I clicked it and it worked, but anyway..
Ok let me see if  get this straight,a citizen asks a question and then is hauled out bt policemen for that,and handcuffed and hauled out is no big deal... Wow I guess the American people are really that apathetic. I don't give a damn if it happened 10 years ago. It should concern you...I guess you don't mind being arrested for legally expressing you 1st amendment rights. He was arrested for doing nothing wrong and you people say SO WHAT?!??!?!?  You make me sick.

I love how [edit] turn it into name calling just because somebody happens to witness something that they find disturbing.
