Political Commentary

I try to keep politics out of this space. However, some things are so over the top ridiculous that one has to say something. Getting arrested for this is beyond ridiculous and an example of nothing but a totalitarian leaning state.

It is nice to know that with all that is going on in the world, the authorities are really cracking down on crime.

I mean seriously... how slow does your day have to be to bring up the pillow fight guy on charges?

I'm not sure how much you can read into this beyond a handful of overzealous and possibly stupid cops, but I agree with you that the charges are ridiculous.

As far as it being a slow day, I clicked over to the local news site just now to read the article and the breaking headline at the top of the page read "Body of Nude Woman Found in Mad River." That's right out of the Green River Killer's playbook.

So let me get this straight - you might have a serial killer on the loose and you're busting people for pillow fighting? The police clearly need to get some perspective here.

Whatever one thinks of flash mob as a phenomena I think it's hard not to agree with you. Ridiculous is the word of the day. It's not as if there is any violence in this event.
