Quote of the Day

This one's a classic.

[City officials] also said Hamilton wasn’t arrested for mowing the grass: He was arrested for not complying with a police order to stop mowing the grass.

Nice precedent.

"Gee, Mr. Mayor, those protesters sure are making us look bad."

"Well, go arrest them, Sergeant!"

"But, they're not breaking any laws."

"Well then, tell them to stop what they're doing, and if they don't stop, then arrest them for failing to comply with your order."
