The cops finally settled on a charge of occupying a public space without a permit due to the protesters two card tables. Despite the protesters request, cops refused to issue a $50 ticket.
OK, Kris, help me with this one: You all wanted a citation, but they wouldn't issue one. What actually would have resulted in a ticket?

We could have challenged the ticket in court. The officers would have had to testify. The D.C. police has gotten alot of grief over how they treat protesters so the officers didn't want to go on the record with the ticket.
Also, because the Kerry campaign was involved, they had to do something to placate them so they gave us a lax order to shut down.
