  • Alinsky tactics, these folks knew they weren't supposed to dance there, so they were wrong. But some of the police were overly aggressive imo.

  • Actually, THIS time, they didn't know they weren't supposed to be dancing there. This was before the Kokesh thing, AND before the court ruling.

  • Wonder what the response would be if it was it was a Pentecostal judge saying that dancing was not permitted?
