    These officers will lose their jobs pronto as all of them were liberal Dem Several of them sat in the middle of the street and blocked rush hour traffic All at a monument that was supposed to be closed

    "The representatives, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY), Rep. Al Green (D-TX), Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Rep. Jan Schawkowsky (D-IL) and Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), were then arrested by U.S. Capitol Police, spokeswoman Kimberly Schneider confirmed to TheBlaze.

    The congressmen were charged with “crowding, obstructing, and incommoding” under D.C. Code 22-1307 and will be processed by the U.S. Capitol Police at 67 K Street, SW.

    If they were Republicans they would be called "Suicide Bombers", "Terrorists" and "Hostage Takers" by the Dems. Maybe all the uncollected garbage Row has been so worried about in the open air parks set them off?

    I think John Lewis has earned the benefit of the doubt on anything he does. This is a guy who was a comrade and leader with MLK in bringing full civil rights to blacks in America.

    Legally you are correct and he's done this enough in his life to know that. Morally and heroically he has the stature.

    Thats your opinion. Many don't share that feeling. When a person intentionally breaks the law and creates hardship on law abiding citizens like he did he loses all right to respect but earns the name of a trouble maker and could care less about other people whose rights he was infringing on by wallowing around in the street blocking traffic

    OK, that's your opinion but that's how those people who ended segregation did it, including MLK and John Lewis, not to mention Ghandi with a different cause.

    WASHINGTON —

    U.S. Rep. John Lewis was arrested Tuesday in front of the Capitol during a protest advocating reform of the nation’s immigration laws.

    The Atlanta Democrat was one of several members of Congress arrested along with other protesters at the culmination of a march up the National Mall, as they locked arms and refused to move from the street.

    It was the 45th time Lewis, a major figure in the civil rights movement, has been arrested in acts of civil disobedience, according to a spokeswoman.

    No doubt you would have been among those opposing the civil rights movement then and miss the distinction between those who break the law and run and those who break it in the interest of a greater cause and willingly take the consequences of their actions.

    As I said, Lewis deserves the benefit of the doubt given his stature as a legitimate American hero who put his body on the line for the advancement of others. You're welcome to disagree but history has already treated Lewis kindly, as he deserves, and your opinion is less important.

    Your inability to distinguish those who sacrifice and purposefully put themselves in harm's way for a greater good and common criminals is duly noted.

    so if YOU consider it a noble cause that makes it ok No cause how noble it is gives anyone the right to break the law If you rob banks to feed the poor you are still a lawbreaker and deserve to be in jail. 45 arrests makes him a habitual offender and he deserves to go to prison. Let him protest in there
