    I honestly don't see a problem with this. Nor would I have a problem if it someone got arrested taking pictures of Boehner's home.

    Seriously?

    Did we travel through a time/space warp and land in the Soviet Union, circa 1956?

    I was in D.C. with my family over the 4th of July weekend. Surprisingly the Secret Service didn't interrogate my 5-year-old for taking pictures of the White House and the State Department with his Leap Pad.

    If they had, or if they had questioned my wife about taking pictures of the same with a real camera, the only rational respose would have been, "Go **** yourself, officer".

    If what I'm doing does not amount to a reasonable suspicion that I am commiting a crime, have just commited a crime, or am about to commit a crime, and unless a law enforcement officer can clearly articulate how my behavior amounts to the reasonable suspicion that I'm engaging in REAL illegal behavior, no law enforecement officer, federal, state, or municipal, has any business at all approaching me.

    Large difference taking pictures in front of the White House with your family and taking pictures from a car of the secretary of state's house. I'm hoping you can see how one would be considered normal behavior and the other suspicious.

    I don't understand the hullabaloo. I mean its not as though we have a history in this country of murdering politicians with whom we disagree.

    Which is also a shame.

    Agree, but the title of the article is disingenuous. The guy was arrested for the open container. The guy was a suspicious character which prompted calling the police, nothing else. This is much to do about nothing. Yahoo might as well of titled the article: "Man arrested outside U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's home in Boston after voting for republicans for 20 straight years"

    A man arrested Sunday taking photos outside Secretary of State John Kerry’s Beacon Hill home will be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court today on alcohol related charges.

    Vladimir Romanov, 29, of West Roxbury, was apprehended Sunday afternoon for possession of an open alcohol container, authorities said. Boston police found a pellet gun in his vehicle.

    The investigation into Romanov is continuing.

    But aint it kinda cool that Kerry has those Government house-sitters at like 50k a year to watch over things when he isn't around.

    Not like he couldn't afford better security, huh?
    I am not getting the problem here. Dumbass had an open container of alcohol in his car and the cop saw it and arrested him. Yes, pretty much if you are stopped on the road taking pictures of a house and a cop sees you they will probably take a glance. When they see your open alcohol container you are then going to get arrested. Sometime around there they may find your pellet gun and depending on state law having one of those loaded in a vehicle is like having a firearm loaded in your vehicle. In some states things like that are suppoased to be stored unloaded and as you would with a firearm when you have them in a car. It is just even more stupid that the guy is doing this outside of a big government official's house where there is likely to be police officers.

    The guy is drinking and driving and should be arrested for such things.

    Were you driving around with an open container of alcohol? he wasn't arrested for taking pictures, he was arrested for drinking and driving. Had the dumbass just been taking pictures there would have been no arrest. Are there cops outside of the white house? I am pretty sure there were a few and if you were beating the crap out of your child I would hope they would come over and stop you because you were breaking the law, and that the newspaper would just report it as a case of child abuse rather than pretending the cops were only there to protect Obama from you taking pictures of the white house. Of course, my hopes would be wrong because you would be an assassin who was just caught because he was beating his kids because the news in the US is a bunch of commentating looky loos who want to tell us all what actually happened in their perverted little rotten minds. Why the hell can't they just say some idiot was busted outside of john kerry's house for an open container and he had a camera and a pellet gun in his car. This way we can put the pieces together and people like you are not confused.
