    I just saw the news footage of them getting the guy down. He walked right down and stepped voluntarily into the boat. They proceeded to roughly turn him around and handcuff him. While he was walking through the water up to the beach a cop knocked his helmet off into the water. Maybe it's just me but why did they have to treat him like that?

    Since I'm in Texas I don't know any of the new stations in that area to look up the video. Zippy, do you mind posting a link please?

    I don't see what the problem with arresting him is if one is not allowed up on the structure..... what if he died? Im sure a family member would come out and try to wrangle cash from the city/state/anyone else who might be liable....
    Now if they guy was just down on the shore line getting a close up of the scene, then yeah... arresting would be over the top.

    I'm sure when they wet the oar for the first time as they left the Nina, The Pinta, and the Santa Maria and rowed towards the unknown wilderness and the absolute freedom it provided that the very first americans dreamed one day their ancestors would be arrested for climbing a structure to hang the very flag that represented their dreams of freedom. Modern Americans arent free. We're captives of banks and insurance companies. Monetized liability and the illusion of safety. Welcome to the new world order.

    F*&k I wish there were some waves today. There, we're free and wild, if but for a few hours.

    other then the wish for waves... the statement is totally ridiculous. you don't think that there was a hierarchy on the boats? they had to do what the captains said. at least we can chose to break the rules or not. they had to follow orders or they risked the entire boats....

    i thought that was pretty badass,but the reason he got arrested is so other kids starving for attention dont try it.if someone climbs it and falls seaside will get sued for millions.its like someone climbing on your roof,placing an american flag,then falls and breaks their neck.in the great state of nj u will get sued and possibly arrested.a few years ago,a thief broke into someones house and drowned,the homeowner was charged with manslaughter.true story check him out on the doc site

    NJ is not the only state with BS legal battles - down here in NC, we have our fair share of head scratching lawsuits. I agree with you 100%, but my post about the "lousy" excuse was not about the arrest itself - it was about what he was arrested for (trespassing). Was he trespassing on private property at the time of the arrest? No. Are signs posted? If so, then the arrest is legitimate. If not, the state would be in deep **** if he fell or if he was injured in his epic climb.

    Climb on, brotha. NC has your back.

    freedom.. for whom?

    indeed. the FREEDOM motive was secondary or tertiary to the MONEY incentive. remember, ( if you ever knew) that columbus was jailed for creating an essential hell in the new world with his contentious and violent treatment and enslavement of the population that was already there (specifically the tainos).
    likewise, the pilgrims were escaping persecution in europe...so they could do the persecuting here without fear of retribution (i guess puritans can't stand quakers or, after awhile, natives).

    it's a waste of time teaching a pig to sing.....

    yeah, you are asking too much on that account, i'm afraid. too many are loathe to let facts get in the way of a good (translated STRIDENT) argument

    You know it's flat on the East Coast when the hottest discussion on here is politics.

    Just messing guys, but yeah I've had enough of politics myself.
