In Philadelphia, Emily Yates, a United States Veteran, was protesting a potential military strike on Syria and was arrested for questioning why she cannot stand in the shade.
According to examiner.com, an individual who recorded the incident:
indicated that he started filming because he “saw her [Yates] being confronted and thought something saucy might happen because those park police are known for using force.” On the video, one can clearly see that Yates is not being violent or resisting arrest in any way. Additionally, the Federal Parks Police did not tell her why they were arresting her.
The Federal Parks Police have yet to comment.
