quote:

Climate change activists blocked streets and snarled traffic in the heart of Times Square on Thursday, resulting in the arrest of more than 60 people, police sources said.

Dozens of demonstrators with the group Extinction Rebellion massed in the morning at the Crossroads of the World, where they plopped a green boat emblazoned with the words “Act Now” in the middle of the street at the intersection of West 44th Street and Broadway.


quote:

The demonstrators shouted: “What do we want want? Climate justice! When do we want it? Now!”

A high-ranking police source said that by noon, 62 adults and one juvenile had been arrested on charges of disorderly conduct. Those nabbed included a dad who was busted on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child because his 16-year-old son’s feet were glued to the top of the boat, sources said.

Brilliant strategy by the father. The cops will be preoccupied with his son while he takes off on foot to get away from the cops only they had him surrounded and it didn't work out quite the way he had designed his plans.

Weird to protest something that occurs and has occurred naturally for millions of years. Do these people really believe the planet should now stay the exact same temperature for eternity? Confusing to me.

Those nasty hippies didn't even have an American flag to fly on their vessel. What a shame.

One day some geneticist is going to win a Nobel prize for figuring out why all of these people look the same.

I think they should at the very least arrest the 16 yr old for truancy and let him stay in the clink until Tuesday, since Monday is Columbus Day.

...So, Did these MENSAs pull the boat there by hand, or bicycle? Or did they use a Tesla?
