    Yes, the Constitution give the authority to SCOTUS to decide which laws are constitutional.

    Perhaps you should enroll in a Civics class and get a better understanding how our Gov works.

    Actually, the Constitution does not give the SCOTUS to decide what laws are constitutional. The power was seized in Marbury v. Madison 11 years after the Constitution was ratified. The only groups that can determine constitutionality of laws are the people and the state governments.

    Police "brutality"?? HA-HA! If that was "brutality" I guess you are still hanging on to mamma's apron. Go eat a Twinkie.

    My 4 year old dances everywhere he goes, without hurting people or causing a public nuisance.
    That's exactly what I was thinking. How many toddlers are going to be arrested for this?

    Dancing is known to lead to a life of crime & debauchery. Might as well nip it in the bud to protect upstanding moral citizens.

    Whats illegal about dancing in a public place when the constitution grants you freedom of expression? The point of a constitution is that any government cannot take away any rights given in it, or make laws that contradict it.
    The only valid law that can nullify a constitution is a new constitution... Do you want that or will you defend your current constitution?

    Stop trying to play armchair lawyer, it's embarrassing.
    Then it is up to you if you want to defend the constitution or some stupid law that says you cannot dance in a public place like that.. whats next?

    These individuals took a stance, for the constitution, and they demonstrated their point pretty well. If you think they are stupid or looked stupid you should look at your own stand on the constitution. Perphaps these people were making a point to all the idiots who do not protect the constitution and let the politicians make any laws, even laws that goes against the constitution.
    You live in a society now that does not at all adhere to the constitution, you just failed to see how far from a constitutional society you have moved.

    that is the shame.

    Considering the circumastance it was brutal. You have to react in an appropriate way to the situation. These people were resisting nothing, and was choked and thrown to the ground. First of all they should not have been arrested, secondly if they should have they should have been treated gently as they showed no violent signs. The police reaction here was appripriate for a situation were a crowd resist, perhaps run away a little, push the policeman or other people a little.
