    US Police arrest Florida pastor

    Pastor arrested before he could burn Qurans


    Glad they could stop this dickhead before he cost more life's.

    Sheriff's officials said they would hold a news conference later Wednesday to discuss specific charges.
    So they arrested him and are now making up charges after the fact? And you're glad that someone was arrested for literally no reason? Sounds like Jones can sue the crap out of the city for this.

    How easily Obama gave Islam control over America. Absolutely disgusting cowardice by our leaders.

    Obama is arming Al-Qaeda and McCain is making secret trips to Syria to give Al-Qaeda government secrets.

    Aside from driving down the highway towing a bbq full of Qurans doused in kerosene without a permit......apparently he was attempting to incite violence and retaliation against US and NATO troops in Afganistan.

    From the OP...
    "...Jones is the pastor of a small evangelical Christian church. He first gained attention in 2010 when he planned to burn a Quran on 9/11, although he eventually called it off. His congregation did burn the Muslim holy book in March 2011, and last year he promoted an anti-Muslim film. All three incidents sparked violence in the Middle East and Afghanistan.

    The most violent protest happened after the 2011 Quran burning as hundreds of protesters stormed a U.N. compound in Mazar-i-Sharif in northern Afghanistan, killing seven foreigners, including four Nepalese guards.

    Jones repeatedly has ignored pleas from the U.S. military asking him not to stage his protests. Military officials say his actions put American and Western troops in Afghanistan and elsewhere in danger...."

    It's always interesting to watch First Amendment rights come into conflict with current government memoranda.

    Yeah he was towing a BBQ down the highway, but don't kid yourselves if you think that's what all the hubbub is about. I personally think this pastor is scum and doesn't deserve to have any title that would associate him with spirituality and faith, but that doesn't mean I approve of the government taking away his First Amendment right.

    "Inciting violence" is BS. That's what the government says about ANY protest they want to shut down now. They claim some hypothetical person will be offended and start attacking someone else (i.e. terrorism) if the activists aren't stopped. Since when are rights granted or taken away based on hypotheticals?

    The Constitution doesn't mean anything anymore.

    He had no permit to build a bonfire in a public park.
