In: Locking your head to something

Out: Persuading your opponent with the power of your argument.

Some people.

The first image is an  Anti-Scott Walker protester who, along with a friend, locked her head to State Capitol railing in June 2011 in a budget protest, via JSOnline.  The police broke the lock and released her.  At the time we noted there was a simpler solution:

Turn out the lights, lock the doors, and go home. And leave them there.

The second image is from the anti-Israel “Block the Boat” protest in Tampa this weekend, via Twitter account Global Revolution TV.  Presumably, she too was unlocked by police:

Here’s the view from another angle, via Twitter user RadicalMedia_:

If they would only quit using bolt cutters and only used acetylene torches to remove the locks… Problem solved.

    I’m ashamed of myself for LoL.

    Superglue the lock. Walk away.

    Yes, I’m ashamed too 🙂

    My Cherokee and Choctaw ancestors would have suggested a band of fresh rawhide. Once tied in a knot, it’s hell to untie. It dries rather fast too, especially indoors.

    Wanna make a point girls? Do that.

    Oh, there’s a “little shrinkage” involved, but it ain’t nothing that y’all can’t handle, I’m sure! 😆

    I completely agree and I am not one bit ashamed to say I LMAO.

    Actually, for the second one, I say just get in the car and start driving, that passengers side door will close on its own after a couple of good left hand turns.

“So, Ma’am, can you give a description of your stolen bike, and the Zionist nation responsible?”

Why they just don’t leave them there?

Hey, if you’re not using your head for anything, it just makes sense to lock it up.

No telling what someone might do with it…

Sure it’s extreme, but it achieves nothing.

Those cops were all doing it the wrong way. Instead of removing the lock from the head/neck, perhaps they might consider doing it the Muslim way – removing the head from the lock.

Tampa Block The Boat has now failed four times to block or delay ZIM Alabama. Block The Boat has been failing all over the US and Canada with the exception of Oakland where it worked for a very short time.

This is clearly an act of desperation to try and show that Block The Boat, which is an offshoot of Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions, is relevant.

Block The Boat claimed on Twitter that this act of desperation caused a traffic jam and that the traffic jam caused long delays at Port Tampa Bay. I’ve yet to see any proof of this and I can’t find any mainstream media source that’s even covering it.

My understanding was the she was locked to this car for 3 hours. I hope the police towed and impounded the car and I hope they gave her a very large fine.

“Turn out the lights, lock the doors, and go home. And leave them there.”
Excellent suggestion, Professor Jacobson.
And if they start yelling, gag them.

    You have to fill the keyhole with a quick-drying epoxy. Then just walk away and let nature take its course.

    Grab a ball gag for them, too. I mean, why stop at locking your neck to something. Oh, and how ’bout a blindfold. Then, let in the creepy clowns.

    They’ll be out of there so fast that Harry Houdini will rise from his grave and take notice!

Wow …. who knew a bike lock had so many uses. Any lurking Bell marketing execs …. take note.

It would help to have a prettier head.

When you said “let’s go out and hit the bars”, this isn’t what I thought you meant.

Leave them locked up overnight, and turn on some old Billy Graham at very high volume, before turning out the lights. Maybe there’d be some conversions by morning. 🙂

They are captives of their own greed and envy.

The irony is that these misfits are projecting or rather displacing the treatment they hope and dream for others. They seem incapable of rational reconciliation of individual dignity and intrinsic value. They exhibit the symptoms of an unresolved paradox in liberal democracy. It’s unfortunate that their sideshow distracts from determining and addressing cause and effect. I wonder if they are leftovers from the occupation that protected and defended the waste, fraud, and abuse of their administration.

This is hardly new. Didn’t the Suffragettes chain themselves to things?

Whack them in the head with a Louisville Slugger and all you’d do is ruin a fine, $40 bat.

    Back in the 70’s when “students” were occupying university offices by chaining themselves together demanding justice for left handed Norwegians our campus cops bought them pizzas and large soft drinks. Nature took its course and, after a while, we had valiant political protestors who pee-peed on themselves. It is pretty hard to be taken seriously when you have potty stains on your pants.

“You cops sure do take your time! Next time, I’ll wear Depends.”

Professor: This video would have been the best way to end your post:

Fill bag full of wasps, slip over protester’s head.

If I were the girl with the dragon tattoo I would inscribe “This Space Available” on their forehead.

Sneezing powder would be humorous…
