Sorry, I guess I was a bit unclear.  I wasn't advocating that position for myself.  I agree that it's a stupid law.

However, if someone did make a whole bunch of people sick, "They" would want someone to blame for the medical attention needed to help the sick.

And somewhere along the line of the sausage-making legislative part, they drew the line at 20 people (or whatever it was).

I'm not saying it's right, I'm saying it appears as if it would work this way in normal circumstances.

I still want to know why Phox thinks admiring someone who emulates MLK makes someone a jackass.   :?

Actually, I think it's to keep vendors from serving food without a license & a health card...Or at least that would have been the original intent.

However, it IS Florida, so maybe they just like to watch homeless people starve to death.

I'm betting (hoping like a motherfucker) that wasn't her intent, but she will have to speak for herself.

Because she envisions herself as the one holding the truncheon?

Or perhaps "it's been done", so nobody can ever do it ever again, or they're copying.

isn't it entrapment if officers are the ones that made up the five extra people?

nope.  He intended to violate the ordinance.



Prove it.

his statement after his arrest that he'd be out there doing it again is very revealing.  He's doing it as a protest.  I can't talk to the guy and ask him myself but I'd be willing to bet he knew there was an ordinance before he set out to do this.

So you can't prove it. Check.

I think the guy's own words count.

But what of it?  It's a bad law, and shouldn't be obeyed.

This, and as long as he abides by any legal punishment he's given, he's following in a long line of great people like Martin Luther King, Jr. who used civil disobedience. And he gets all kinds of brownie points with some jackasses if he points that out.

How would admiring someone who emulates MLK make you a jackass?

I was referring to members of the media, not him.The media is full of jackasses, though not everyone is. Most of the people in the media would fawn over him if he pointed this fact out to them, including some of the jackasses that would condemn him otherwise. Sorry for the confusion there.

ETA: Jesus fucking Christ, guys, give me a chance.  :lulz:

I think Phox meant that if you styled it as MLK style civil disobedience, a lot of people who would otherwise try and punish you for it would suddenly cease their attacks, knowing the reputation that MLK has and how opposing that reputation makes you look (outside of a Rand Paul rally, at least).

Maybe.

But it's hard to parse, no doubt.

maybe this:

members of media=jackasses

being admired by members of media=being admired by jackasses

I think that's what she meant.
