It is called not having an INVITATION and trying to gate crash..waiting in line has nothing to do with it.And honest to Pete, does anyone here honestly believe that not listening to the police who are asking you to vacate is NOT a threat to our elected officials?
And, the last time I watched football, it didn't look anything like these guys who tried to bring the Rev outside, and who then RESISTED.
sorry, no go. Thanks for the videotape. I nice example of an attempt at a set-up, a twisting of facts, and a great example of different perspectives from eyewitness reports.

Rev. Yearwood: "The officers decided I was not going to get in General Petreaus' hearing when they saw my button, which says 'I LOVE THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ.'"

He clearly disobeyed the officer's directions and then resisted arrest which resulted in his injuries.
