Whether or not you agree with this guy's motives, his methods are entirely peaceful and inoffensive and he poses absolutely no threat to anybody.

Thoughts on his arrest? Justified or not?

Wrong, absolutely. But by the same token, dozens of anarchists were banned from London for the day of the Royal Wedding and it is doubtful that any of them were as much of a colossal prick as Charlie Veitch is so I'm struggling to conjure up too much righteous fury.

Very true, I have some serious side eye for some of his theories.

I like his gf.

She's got some fight in her.

Not that I necessarily agree with anything they've done.

And perhaps they'll be nice to the person whose head they'll put a bullet through.

We can't arrest conspirators?

Reminds me of that Simpson episode when Wiggan says they can't arrest Sideshow Bob until he stabs Bart or some such other character.

You seem to have left out of the title that he was also being arrested for trespass

I think it's sick that someone can record someone else without their consent, and post it on the internet for millions to see, without that persons consent.

That's completely legal, try again.

It doesn't matter whether or not he poses a threat, the Police had a warrant for his arrest. He was suspected of committing a crime. Thus he was arrested.

As legal as arresting a conspirator, yes, but far sicker.

The woman seems keen on asserting that it's a political arrest to give her ego and her perversions a boost that wouldn't be had if she saw it for what it was.
