"Capital of the world police state"

Lew Rockwell comments on the use of police brutality against Dancemaster Kokesh and others, saying:
Protesters will always be brutalized in the capital of the world police state. Nothing good is to be expected from DC, let alone its self-worshiping religious memorabilia. Love liberty? Avoid the Beltway like the plague it is. (Thanks to Sam)
You're welcome, Lew.

Also, Kokesh has asked people to send Drudge a news tip about the Youtube video so he will hopefully feature it over this Memorial Day weekend. Scroll down to view the lower-right where it says "Send News Tips to Drudge" and then please do just that.

Incidentally, this author heard one military supporter of Kokesh offer an awfully common sense perspective, saying: "The question is not, 'why would they dance at the jefferson memorial if they knew it was illegal?' the question is, 'why would the government pass a law banning dancing in a public place?'" In response to this, he quoted Henry David Thoreau, who said: "‎Unjust laws exist: shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once?"
