Arrests at Jefferson Memorial May 27, 2011 (video)
Looks like Memorial Day Weekend 2011 got off to a rousing start at the Jefferson Memorial, doesn't it? Dance Party at the Tidal Basin?
Meanwhile, the old 'Jefferson rolling over in his grave' adage comes easily to mind especially with his statue towering over the action. And what was that American Uranian word we like to tout at the drop of a baton?
Oh yeah...freedom! Well, Uranus may also inspire radical political movements, protests, and demonstrations, and most anything of a sudden, surprising, or disruptive nature.
Yet to me it seems that someone in charge overreacted. Or was it purposefully overdone to show that the police state ain't playin'?
This one will be filed under For Further Consideration...
