No, they didn't do anything like that. It was a peaceful protest, which stopped by the police force and the peaceful protesters were thrown to prison, and journalists who did their work where thrown to prison too. Now the court decided that they were not guilty in anything, but and so what? That's America - if the state don't care about your protest - nothing happen, but if the state don't like your protests - you will be beaten and sent to prison. Do you work in U.S. state department? Your excessive criticism against Russia and blind eye on America in this similar cases is obvious.
I don't work for the state department. You can protest Fort Benning all you want. You will get a permit if you apply for it. And will be allowed to protest against it.

In Russia, Gays can never protest against the homophobia of the Orthodox Church and homophobia in society in their national capital (and no, a protest that dovetails with the aims of United Russia doesn't count).

You deny the facts. The facts are that you will be arrested and thrown to prison to the criminals, spent a night there and will be proposed to recognize your guilt or stay in prison.

In the USA, you have certain rights. One, you have a right to a reasonable bail unless you are a flight risk. It may take till the next workday to get you in front of judge. Two, you have a right to an attorney. Three, you have a right to sue the government if your rights are violated. And our government loses these cases. And the fines are 40000 dollars either. They're much higher.

Please let me know when RT applied for a permit for its' demonstration. And at Fort Benning. Please let me know when they were refused a permit. And when they were arrested while staying within the instructions on that permit.

By the way, I used to live 50 miles from Fort Benning. I've been at a protest there (against the Latin American Security School) and nothing happened until some idiots who apparently wanted to get arrested blocked the gate. They were warned then arrested.

You should spend a night in prison and you should recognize your guilt if you want to leave it. In Russia in such case you don't need to recognize your guilt, you won't be sent to prison, you will be released in a couple of hours.

You can sue it only in American court, but in Russia you can sue the state in international court.

They didn't applied, because they were not protesters - they filmed the protests of other people. That's their work. They were arrested for doing their work. You call that "press freedom".

Then they can sue in American courts. I hope they win.

Yes, Russia can be sued in International Courts. But what good is that when they flagrantly ignore the rulings of that court?

In the USA, you have to wait in jail till you can go before a judge. It does cause some discomfort because of the timing issue. However, it keeps corruption down because our police have much less leeway in dropping charges.

Not in the slightest. I have no problem with people being arrested for being naked on the streets. Just so long as the laws are consistent.

Could Kokesh have gotten a permit? Yes. Did he apply for one? No. Could he have danced in public in multiple other prominent public locations in DC? Yes.

Could Gayrussia get a permit? No. Did they apply for one? Actually they've applied literally dozens of times. Can they protest in public in alternative public locations in Central Moscow? No.
