Seems a bunch of libertarian college kids were acting like douches at the Jefferson Memorial, and contrary to their protestations, they were not "being quiet" whilst dancing with their iPhones. They were asked to leave, did not comply, and one of them was arrested. Boo-hoo.
Me personally, I think the 'big' memorials are places of solemnity (particularly at night), but hey... I'm just a neophyte local.
Videos and full story at the link, greatest comment right here:
I'm gonna go ahead and inject race into this discussion, because it seems like only White people just openly defy the police and basically beg to be arrested like this over some nonsense like Jefferson's birthday. I listened to the video and the guy with the camera is saying how this isn't the America that Jefferson envisioned and he's right; if we had the America that Jefferson envisioned I would still be a member of the "Motisa tribe" and bringing Monkey and Hillman goblets of Carlo Rossi on demand.
As a Black man, when the cops ask/tell me to do something I get to steppin'. I don't ask any questions or point out how wrong they are, I just do what I'm told and hope to avoid a Rodney King-style beatdown or a Prince Jones-style getting my ass filled with more hot lead than a pencil.
Were the cops wrong? Of course they were; but everyone knows that if you fuck with the bull, you get the horns.
If there's anything you want
Come on back, 'cause it's all still here
I'll be in the backroom drinkin' my half of the beer
