Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
You see, if you are so politically biased that you hate on American cops for following orders but fail to equally condemn people who are committing true atrocities in this world as we speak, you are, as I pointed out originally, just another troll who has a weak argument and must call someone you dislike a Nazi.
If you want to talk about whether law enforcement officials should follow orders, we can quickly do that.
Point to the German law that required Nazis to put Jews into ovens. You can’t because even under German law it was illegal to do what they did.
Do you believe in GOD?
Oh, these cops are obviously "intellectually disabled" too. They share that common principle with the Islamic. There. Happy now? I'm not just saying it about one and not the other. I'm a fair guy once you get to know me.
You accuse the use of logic as religion or political affiliation. If you continue to evade reasoning on this matter I will have to discontinue schooling you.

Can you explain how these cops arresting people for breaking the law had anything to do with Nazis who threw Jews into ovens? It isn’t a “strawman”. You chose the comparison, not me. Please explain.
As I already educated you on, the Nazis who threw Jews into ovens did so in violation of the law (even German law) so I fail to see the “just following orders” connection you are clinging to.
Please explain how the Nazis' and these police officers' “two principles are identical in both situations”.
The debate here is getting a little distorted. A law was established after a Mob Dance occurred several years ago. Don't know the details of that situation but the event resulted in a new rule/regulation/statute that stated no dancing in the sites/memorials on the national mall.
Am suspecting there are rules against playing loud boomboxes, riding bicycles, sleeping, alcohol, barbeque grills, etc. in these national monuments. Goal is to keep the environment safe and serene for the visitors to the landmarks. People come from around to world to visit/see these revered structures and providing a calm peaceful ambiance is not really asking too much.
The arguments that these few "dance protestors" where causing no harm isn't really valid. It is difficult to make laws with caveats. "Well you can only dance if it is a slow quiet dance". "Well you can only set up a barbeque grill if you keep the smoke down, and don't turn up the boombox very loud".
The national mall is special place and a destination for travelers from across the globe. Keeping the monuments peaceful, orderly, and quiet is a reasonable goal. Again, the dance rule was the outcome of an earlier mob dance that was determined to be disruptive. This isn't really all that complex.
