    Code Pink pretty much says what their purpose was. The got their wish. However, I still understand what the issue is with dancing.

    Somehow I can't imagine any Federal judges, unless they're Reagan or Bush appointees, not dismissing these ridiculous charges.

    Yes, it was staged, hence the video. But the police violated countless Constitutional rights here. The police fell for the trap. I'd be interested to know how this plays out.

    Charges Dismissed against the dancers. Cops cleared of any wrong doing. You're welcome.

    I expected the charges to be dismissed. But how do the cops get a pass, if the charges were bogus that they brought, the arrests & detentions illegal, that were later dismissed? What, this never happened?

    I guess a big Gilda Radner: "Never mind!"

    I don't know Art...I'm glad the charges were dismissed, and I agree that the arrests and detentions should be illegal: however I have a hard time believing that these cops just decided that, in full view of cameras, they were going to carry out these arrests independent of protocol.

    So I don't believe it would be fair to charge the cops without first trying to understand what prompts them to act in this manner: were they trained that, if they see two people embracing at a memorial like this, they are to arrest them like this?

    But only by charging the cops, who actually conducted these illegal arrests, might we find out during trial if they were acting independently, or according to written policy, or perhaps to specific instructions for this particular group.
