Anti Bush Lawyer Arrested For Wearing Bin Laden Costume

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine -- The lawyer who divulged President Bush's drunken-driving arrest days before the 2000 election was arrested at gunpoint yesterday after he was seen on a highway construction site carrying a toy gun while dressed in an Osama bin Laden costume.


Um. I'm pretty sure I'd be arrested if I dressed up as Donald Rumsfeld and carried a fake assault rifle.

I don't think his rights were violated at all, he was arrested because he gave probable cause of posing a threat to public safety.

Being a "danger to self or others" will get you arrested and I'd say the police had probable cause to suspect he was.

You can walk around wearing a Bin Laden costume all day long, there have been plenty who have the last few Halloweens, just don't carry fake weapons and expect people aren't going to assume you might be dangerous.

You are right of course - but it's an interesting story, not?
