5 Arrested Outside of Colosimo’s

The clergy group that was lead the other day by Right Reverend Bryan Miller apparently heeded God’s call to defiantly trespass on the property of another:

Supporters outside the store’s entrance applauded and thanked protesters as police carted them off, one by one, in handcuffs.

“You couldn’t talk them out of getting locked up,” said Lt. Joseph O’Brien, of the Civil Affairs Unit. “Usually you could talk them out of it.”

Others weren’t so impressed.

“It’s trespassing,” said Capt. William Fisher. “I gave them three warnings to protest on the sidewalk.

“They feel they have an issue and they feel this is how they can get the most attention,” he said.

The demonstrators spent the night in jail and are facing charges of defiant trespassing.

You know what me, the evil gun owner has never been arrested for?  If you guessed a third degree misdemeanor, you’d be correct.  Here’s an interesting thing, the headline says five were arrested:

Other activists who were arrested and charged yesterday include the Rev. Isaac Miller, of the Church of the Advocate, Rabbi Yitzhak Nates, of Narberth Havurah, Mimi Copp, 34, of the Circle of Hope Church and Melissa DeLong, 28, of Camden.

Let me see, that’s one, two, three, four.  Who was the first activist arrested?  Did I miss something?  Was it Bryan Miller and they conviently forgot to tell us?  I doubt Bryan is that stupid, but we’ll look into this for sure!

UPDATE: Nope… Not Bryan Miller.  That would have been too good.

    Nah, it wasn’t him. I re-read the article and found the fifth person.

  2. Carl in Chicago says:

    It was Phil Jones, director of Brethren Witness.

  3. Matt Maynard says:

    “One! Two! Five!”

    “Three, sir!”

    “Three!”

    In the first sentence the article reads “were arrested for standing – literally – on their principles”. How does one literally stand on a principle? Maybe there was some kind of school administrator trampled at the protest?

    That would be a principal
