Free Hugs guy gets arrested in Time Square!

According to the YouTube Desription

For the past year the NYPD has been harassing people doing Free Hugs in Time Square. On Friday, June 10, 2011 at about 11:00 Solomon Seagal was arrested when a couple tourists asked to buy a Free Hugs button. He was held for over 36 hours without seeing a lawyer and accused of vending without a license. THIS WILL NOT STAND!

The NYPD has been harassing people doing Free Hugs. They tell us to leave, not to hold signs up. Several people have been arrested and charged with blocking traffic and disorderly conduct. THE NYPD IS TRYING TO SCARE US OUT OF TIME SQUARE!

If this bothers you at all you will spread this video so more people can see it and see the injustice that is happening here every day! If you can also write to the NYPD and tell them you do not accept their behavior and will not tolerate it!
