Not sure how accurate this is, only thing I've seen posted so far relative to what happened before the arrests started happening. [link=(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CnGIkbtWYAAsOax.jpg:large)]LINK[/link]...

re: Im not sure but is what these BRPD are doing, legal? - BRTiger2005
I think the big gap here is what happened before this video: [link=(https://twitter.com/DavidBegnaud/status/752319658020073472)]LINK[/link] Half of this thread thinks people are arguing that you can't be arrested while on private property, they're not arguing that. The argument is that the ral...

[quote]You do understand that the law still applies to them, even if they are on private property?[/quote] The thing they were being arrested for was blocking the roadway. First, the cops had already blocked that street off, so it's kind of a moot point. Second, they're standing in grass, arresti...

[quote]She said it was private property. She did not say if the owners permitted them. But I will defer to you.[/quote] Here's a link of the homeowner explicitly stating she gave the protesters permission. I dunno, I feel like we're done here? [link=(https://twitter.com/DavidBegnaud/status/752...

re: Im not sure but is what these BRPD are doing, legal? - BRTiger2005
[quote]ok, then that makes sense.[/quote] It makes sense until you see the video of the home owner saying she gave the people permission to be on her property. https://twitter.com/DavidBegnaud/status/752309625324654592/video/1 ...

[quote]Trespassing. You have heard of this, correct?[/quote] I'm pretty sure if the home owner invites you to stay, it's no longer trespassing, but you're more of an expert in these things than I am, so I'll defer to you....

[quote]Why does "everyone" need this? If they can't afford the prices of the higher speeds now then who's going to pay for that?[/quote] In Kansas City, google is paying for free internet for anyone in an impoverished neighborhood. The amazing thing about the internet is it's a meritocracy. W...

[quote]My personal opinion is that govt should never compete with private enterprise. Govt runs out of money, it endlessly raises your taxes. Private enterprise runs out of money, it goes out of business.[/quote] I agree with you 100% i don't think the government should be offering services. ...
