    which btw crapping on police cars and littering are not forms of free speech.
    So was this man violating the law? Because he was on private property....

    Because he did not have a permit. They said if he goes back with a permit, he can continue reading from the Bible.

    You may not like that you need a permit, but according to the police department you do need one.

    I wouldn't like it. According to you complaining to one of the officers would be the wrong thing to do. To you, the right thing to do would be to slug him in the face and then beat his head into the concrete because he was stalking and intimidating me - he having started the whole thing as it his fault, plus I could have seen him as dangerous and he should have know I might become violent for which he knowingly put himself in harms way. All of it his fault.

    The only reason I can figure you picked a Muslim reading the Quran rather than a Christian reading the Bible is because you hate Muslims and figure everyone here does too?

    Of course, he did this to get arrested and to bring publicity to the "War on Christianity." They should have let him preach until his desperation for attention brought him to do something else against the law.

    It's a little heavy handed police action, but if it was private property, the owners do not have to allow him to preach there. I don't know how it is in California, but things like the DMV are often located in strip malls among the retail establishments, and the State pays rent to the owner. Owner says no, you have no right to preach there. Conservatives should understand that since it's about property rights.

    Liberal hypocrisy example #2,356.

    If this were two guys making out, an OWS protestor, or a PETA demonstrator, they'd be exericising free speech.

    But a guy read a Bible. Hang him.

    So the DMV called the cops about this guy who, ITO, was "holding church" in the parking lot? The cops arrest him because he didn't have a permit to hold church in the parking lot, yes? All this "church holding" was based on him reading the bible and 2 of his parishioners being there, right? Was the guy waylaying any body to attend this "so called chruch"?

    I don't know about anyone else, but this has got to be the dumbest thing I've heard this week.
