"loud and tumultuous behavior in a public place"

Ridiculous.

Still no statements from the passersby? This will never be resolved using the schoolyard approach of He Said….No, He Said. Of course, this make better press fodder than dry old facts.

WARNING: The following will be considered offensive to many.

It is unfortunate that people who have attained respected positions and have access to a megaphone, choose to secure a status of victimization (their 15 minutes of fame) rather than pursue a position of relevance while it is still available.
Reports indicate that within the next 30 years (give or take) the most populace minority in the U.S. will be hispanic, closely followed by oreintal. Black will, unfortunately, become irrelivant.
