Seems a little excessive to arrest her at her workplace for something like this. For that matter to arrest her at all, imho.

Considering her intent was not to break a law, I challenge any judge to know the laws off the top of his head.

Defining riding a manatee as threatening an endangered species is typical American thinking. What else should we expect? Give your head a collective shake, get off your high horse and get real. That’s my advice but then, you’re too arrogant to take it, anyway.

It must have been consensual. The manatee didn’t seem to mind.

She was too big to be riding on that animal!

The USA is a full fledged police state.

The bureaucrat who decided to seek to arrest this woman should be fired. Then his/her entire department should be fired.

Clearly, the only thing she did wrong that day was leaving the house dressed like she was. But don’t worry all of you police-state defenders, the fashion task force of the police dept will soon be issuing citation for such things.
