Jefferson Memorial
« on: July 06, 2011, 12:34:32 PM »

So I went to the memorial on 4 July... Didn't see any dancing. Did go through a few checkpoints that day. None of the cops were intimidating, authoritarian, or even dicks. Only one of the 9 (5 museum, 4 monument) even stopped me for my multitool. Many of the officers were friendly, joking around and smiling, and/or professional. I even had my camera out for one or two of them. I understand Meg and others had some difficulty. I wonder why there is such a difference in our experiences. Time of day, group, demeanor? Maybe its just that I'm a sheeple?

Also, I've got a short video of my 8 month old son dancing on my lap. Does that count as a 'demonstation'? Pics later when not on my Blackberry.

I think that counts as 'molestation'.

Your positive energy had an effect on them like the hippies at the Vietnam war protests. Cops need to experience more of your calm type; less of the Alex 'Mega Viral' Jones megaphone blasting in the ears style crap.

That molestation joke is low even for these forums, blackie. Also, didn't some hippies get shot at those protests?

Students at Kent State were shot by a few on the ground and from a helicopter. I haven't heard of other instances.

Seconded. Hope more parents show support in a temperate way at these sorts of things

BTW, the Jefferson memorial is amazing. I love some of the quotes on the walls. I love the ambience and the steps overlooking the Potomac. It's ironic, though, that FDR actually laid the cornerstone for the project.
