After this years visit to pirate fest I have to say it is confirmed that me and my family will NEVER return back to Tybee Island thanks to the bogus disorderly conduct charge members of our group received. I have NEVER before witnessed such abuse of power by authority figures in my life. I was enjoying the concert when members of our group were escorted out of the concert for doing nothing, not even jumping around or moshing. When they were removed, I honestly thought that they were just asked to leave and not arrested. According to the Tybee Police, they have a protocol to keep and you get arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct without even been given the chance to exit the concert with a warning. I myself, a 34 year old 125lb mother of 2 kids, was grabbed by the police and told that if I came up front again, I would be arrested. When I asked for what reason I was told to shut up and walk away. I assure you before I was pulled away and told to leave, I too was doing nothing but enjoying the concert and I have witnesses to prove all of this story. Kind of funny though they gave me a warning, but never gave the other members of our group a warning.
Unfortunately, the members of our group that were arrested for no REAL reason, will now have to feel the pain of this through their employer, the military. It truly is a sad situation when you are arrested and booked and told you have no way out of it, for doing nothing wrong. All we wanted to do was enjoy a night of great music, but instead it was full of heart ache and sleepless night. And the affects of this night will go on long passed the court date. I assure you, me and my family will NEVER again return to Tybee Island and I will make sure everyone of my friends and family knows just how crappy a place it is to go.
