    Parks are also state property. IE just because it is state property it does not mean that it is not public.

    What if he had said "unless you believe on the Grand Fallopian, you are all going to melt and go down the bathtub drain."

    Would that be a "threat"?

    I've read that this is not the first time this has happened with these individuals. Police apparently have warned these guys multiple times, which leads me to believe those who have said this guy wanted to get arrested are probably correct. To me, the arrest sounds like a protest in and of itself to bring to light the issue of reading the bible publicly. Regardless of the motivation and intent, the issue at hand is, did the police have a right to arrest the guy? I agree with soccerboy that if the parking lot is technically owned by the DMV, they can have him arrested for trespass - it's their land. A harder argument is if the DMV parking lot is owned by someone else or is considered public land. Even harder still would be to press the illegal protest charge, which I think wouldn't work which maybe why the charges were changed to trespassing.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    How is that a threat. If you don't believe, you wouldn't care less what the guy is saying. If you are a believer/church goer, then you've heard it from you priest/pastor before.

    Reading from a book is not threatening anything.

    Besides a threat is only a threat if the person doing the threatening can actually accomplish what is being threatened. Last I knew God was the only one that could send a person to hell. Not preachers.

    Re: Man Arrested For Reading The Bible Out Loud

    So Christians are believing in a "myth", yet when they convey that "myth" in public, it's a 'threat".

    Fascinating. I'm beginning to see why the left is so confused. It's difficult to keep up with all the rule changes in the middle of the game.

    Hmmm ...... this was what a year ago? Has this been settled yet. I mean the trespassing charge?

    Yes, that could be. Like I said, I've seen less used before.

    As far as I know it's still going on... I haven't found anything real recent on it yet.
