Protestors Arrested For Dancing At Jefferson Memorial
Park police are looking into whether they were too aggressive in arresting five demonstrators dancing at the Jefferson Memorial.
Videos that have surfaced online show the officers forcefully arresting the protesters on Saturday afternoon. One officer is seen in the videos with his hands around a protester’s throat.
The protesters were challenging a recent federal appeals court decision that upheld a ban on dancing inside the memorial.
They were arrested for
dancing demonstrating without a permit.
