Really, can you be arrested for dancing in public in America? Really?



This writer was in the former Soviet Union, in Vilnius, Lithuania, not long after the wall fell in the former USSR. It is pretty ironic that a Russian television network is one of the few of the mainstream media outlets pointing out the ridiculousness going on in America. Should dancing in public, in America, really be an excuse for arrests, government processing, court, confinement, fines, a criminal record, and possible jail time? Well, it appears, life in America is getting that ridiculous pointed out by a former Cold War enemy's current news network. These Cold War enemies were accused of, and guilty of, citizen abuse similar to what is actually occurring in America right now.

In the former Soviet Union, dancing, and celebration, was actually encouraged near government monuments. In America this is cause for arrest and maybe prison. Is it all over, except for the crying?

I met Medea Benjamin, of CodePink, in 2008 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the Free Press, NCMR event. She liked the high definition video camera I was filming with, that wasn't mine, it is Francis C. P. Knize property, and we talked, exchanged emails, and hung out for about 10 minutes, and didn't know who she was, and regret not hanging out with her longer. I like her as a person, then, and am more, and more, impressed with her political activism, and intelligence, every day.

RT's Adam vs the Man host Adam Kokesh and several other activists participating in a flash-mob were body slammed, choked and arrested at the publicly-funded Thomas Jefferson Memorial. Their crime? Silently dancing, in celebration of the first amendment's champion and in response to US District Judge John D. Bates' ruling that denounced dancing on the site.
