    ‘I just kept asking: Why am I being arrested for sitting in my aunt’s driveway?’

    ‘I just kept asking: Why am I being arrested for sitting in my aunt’s driveway?’ - The Washington Post

    Joshua Hampton saw the big black police truck from down the block. He saw the lights, and the officers in military garb clinging to the sides. He wasn’t worried. It was around 2 a.m. Sunday, two hours after the new curfew mandated for Ferguson, Mo., but Hampton was sitting in his own car, smoking a cigarette in his aunt’s driveway. He thought he was obeying the law.
    Wait.. So I thought the media was trying to portray the 7 arrested as rowdy. (not said directly but it sure seemed that way)

    Turns out 5 of the people arrested that night were smoking in a car on private property??? Ummmm. If this is true then all the leadership in this police force needs to be stripped and re-established by the community. This is really starting to sound like some NAZI crap. Are the police trying to inflame the local populace on purpose or something? Who the **** pulls a gun out on someone for sitting in a car? Is curfew enough to aim a deadly weapon at someone??

    it doesn't sound anything like a Nazi camp. Nazis rounds up millions of people and murdered them. this sounds like cops ****ing up. big difference.

    No, what needs to happen is folks start obeying the law.

    Well I didnt say nazi camp. I more mean like the begining of their rise. With the curfews and such. How are we free if we cant even smoke on our own property? They even took the extra step to sit in a car so it didnt look like they were standing outside in protest.

    It is a common practice for the government to blame the citizens for their failures. When the government sets a curfew they are admitting that failed to do their job, but instead of doing it better they strip the people of their liberty. It is a classic example of exactly what is wrong with any government model.

    I gotta ask here, how high does one's IQ have to be in order to fully comprehend that there has been death and destruction and now a curfew is in place for the good of everyone?

    At a certain point I have to say, if you have no common sense, if the need to be defiant, or stupid over-rides basic common sense, I have no further sympathy.

    With all that has occurred in this community WHY do people have to stretch the limit out?

    They guy does not deserve to die for being stupid, but he didn't so I say, man up be glad you are still breathing and don't be a wiener.

    wow hey dude, there's a curfew, it not be pertaining to me though, I be right in a car, in my auntie's driveway smokin'...they be arrestin' me, not my fault bro

    yes it is, and if you need an explanation here as to why, your road is going to be a rocky one in the real world

    So why arent the cops out arresting looters? Why are they arresting some dude smoking a cigerette on private property? Then including that in the "7 arrested" news while keeping specific info (5 of them were smoking a cigerette on private prop) separate. That doesnt seem odd to you? Do the cops want the looters to keep going while pissing off innocent people by targeting them? I just dont get it.

    What law was broken by this person sitting in his car which was in turn sitting in his aunt's driveway? You need to specifically cite the wording of the law and not make some vague reference of what you think the law says.

    The guy was not protesting or rioting. He was in his driveway. Why are cops driving by looters yet stopping for people in their own drive way? Common man. Its obvious the curfew was meant for protesters and looters. If he didnt leave the home premises then he didnt violate curfew. Even a kid can sit on his porch as long as he wants and cops cant do anything about it, even if children are susceptible to "non-rioting" curfews.

    Well, maybe it had something to do with the fact that about an hour before a bunch of folks with guns were chased away from the BBQ joint after somebody got shot.
