3. clicked the link. it was a staged protest by the Idaho Freedom Foundation

As she was being handcuffed, Brady sternly said, while pointing to the ground, "Someone call Idaho Freedom Foundation right now and get them on the phone."


The Idaho Freedom Foundation said it was part of a planned protest. They have an ongoing list of places that will hold protests against the stay at home order.

During the confrontation leading up to Brady's arrest, an unnamed city employee asked Brady and the woman filming it, "Were you guys organized to do this? So all of you just showed up at once?"

4. Even worse: it was an astroturfed coordinated protest.



Meridian woman arrested during protest after refusing to leave a closed playground

Forty-year-old Sara Brady asked to make sure her arrest was being recorded and said: "someone call Idaho Freedom Foundation right now and get them on the phone."

BOISE, Idaho — A 40-year-old Meridian woman was arrested on Tuesday after she and a large group of people went to a closed playground, refused to leave and Brady told an officer to arrest her. Brady's arrest quickly sparked another protest at Meridian City Hall.

Sara Brady was charged with misdemeanor trespassing and booked into the Ada County Jail at about 5 p.m. Tuesday. She has since been bailed out.

The arrested was captured on video during a Facebook live and has made its way around social media, with one of the videos getting over 15,000 reactions and 13,000 shares.

In this video posted to YouTube, Brady and a large group of parents and children are seen at the playground at Kleiner Park in Meridian, with police tape that signaled the park was closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic visible on the ground.

6. The idiocy required to argue


with a fellow citizen charged with keeping all of us
safe from potential Cova19 carrying morons that choose
to endanger not only their own lives but their children's lives
as well is way beyond the pale.

"Stupid is as stupid does." - Forrest Gump

Hold rallies for the non-believers of science so that only
they are invited to participate out of the presence of those
that disagree.

I think we could raise cash enough for plenty of beer, wine,
hot dogs, chips and Jello shots.

7. That does not make the mom's look good. Plus it teaches their kids that laws do not matter.

The officers were polite, and they were correct. My guess is those moms have nice yards available for the kids to playin. I hope no people had their lives put at risk because of the time the officers had to spend with these entitled "moms". I saw an earlier post that someone thought she looked hot. I disagree, she is an extremely unattractive person, as are her friends. Also, as a grandmother, the kids are being out at risk.

11. The officer showed great restraint

If the city closed the park then the people were trespassing.

The woman succeeded in removing any doubt as to her lack of intelligence. The video will follow her all the days of her life. Just another idiot Trumpette.

15. Bringing a homeless person point of view into it...

When a park is closed, that's it. We would and do get hit with a charge of trespassing.

In this case there is no difference in her and the homeless. Throw the book at her!

16. The Idaho Freedom Foundation has $$$ ties to the Kochs, DeVos, Coors & Walton families; & BIG corps.

NONE of these “grassroots” demonstrations are just spontaneously occurring. They’re ALL organized and coordinated by interlocking far-right organizations. The funding tentacles of these “respectable appearing” entities reach far and wide. But, as always, their ultimate funding always emanates from the same sources.

All info below is from SourceWatch.org.

https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Idaho_Freedom_Foundation
The Idaho Freedom Foundation (IFF) is a conservative 501(c)(3) organization that is a member of the right-wing State Policy Network (SPN) and advocates for conservative state legislation in Idaho. Thanks It is based in Boise and calls itself a research institute that advocates for "free market solutions, private property rights, individual responsibility and transparent, limited government."
<snip>
In addition to receiving funding from the State Policy Network and the Donors Capital Fund, both with ties to the Kochs, the Idaho Freedom Foundation is a partner organization in the Charles Koch Institute's Liberty@Work program.
<snip>
https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=State_Policy_Network
The State Policy Network (SPN) is a web of right-wing “think tanks” and tax-exempt organizations in 50 states, Washington, D.C., Canada, and the United Kingdom. As of October 2019, SPN's membership totals 162. Today's SPN is the tip of the spear of far-right, nationally funded policy agenda in the states that undergirds extremists in the Republican Party.
<snip>
Tax documents and other available records reveal that SPN is funded by the same large corporations, right-wing foundations, and wealthy conservative ideologues that fund ALEC. Some of the most notable corporate funders of SPN and its web of "think tanks" include Big Tobacco companies (like Reynolds), Big Oil corporations (like the Koch family fortune), AT&T, Kraft Foods, Verizon, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Facebook, and Microsoft.

SPN and its "think tanks" are also largely funded by right-wing special interest groups and individuals, including the Koch brothers, the DeVos family, the Coors family, the Walton Family Foundation, the Roe Foundation, the Bradley Foundation, and Searle Freedom Trust.

<snip>
SPN groups operate as the policy, communications, and litigation arm of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), giving the cookie-cutter ALEC agenda a sheen of academic legitimacy and state-based support.
<snip>
https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=American_Legislative_Exchange_Council
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) describes itself as the largest “membership association of state legislators,” but over 98% of its revenue comes from sources other than legislative dues, primarily from corporations and corporate foundations. After the 2010 congressional midterm elections, ALEC boasted that “among those who won their elections, three of the four former state legislators newly-elected to the U.S. Senate are ALEC Alumni and 27 of the 42 former state legislators newly-elected to the U.S. House are ALEC Alumni.”

ALEC’s agenda extends into almost all areas of law. Its bills undermine environmental regulations and deny climate change; support school privatization; undercut health care reform; defund unions and limit their political influence; restrain legislatures’ abilities to raise revenue through taxes; mandate strict election laws that disenfranchise voters; increase incarceration to benefit the private prison industry, among many other issues.

ALEC is an "associate" member of the State Policy Network, a web of right-wing “think tanks” in every state across the country.
<snip>
Charles Koch is the right-wing billionaire owner of Koch Industries. As one of the richest people in the world, he is a key funder of the right-wing infrastructure, including the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the State Policy Network (SPN). In SourceWatch, key articles on Charles Koch and his late brother David include: Koch Brothers, Americans for Prosperity, Stand Together Chamber of Commerce, Stand Together, Koch Family Foundations, Koch Universities, and I360.

"It's unconstitutional!"

"Am I being arrested or detained?"
