Doesn't the First Amendment cover this?

But it was about COVID-19!  There were plague rats on the beach!

He's on the right side of history!

If he'd been carrying a Glock instead of a knife they wouldn't have been able to touch him.

Serves him right, dressing up as the wrong horror icon in Texas.

Is that a Homelite saw?

I have to say, the video at the end was a tad creepy.

Nope, that was Scarface, apparently.

In a second post made around 7:20 p.m., Metzger wrote his appearance on the beach was about "bringing positive vibes to the gloom and doom out there, generating some laughter, helping people crack a smile, and restoring our faith in humanity through humor."

Ok, while I can understand attempting to bring a little levity into this farked up world *maybe* dressing up as a serial killer might not be the best way to go about it. Still better than those creepy clowns from a few years ago though.

"So if taking a silly walk down the beach during a storm in a costume, and subsequently being arrested for disorderly conduct accomplished any of that .... then I'd do it again all day every day," Metzger wrote.

Dare to dream. Go get 'em tiger.

It would be nice if they were just as vigilant about beach goers leaving used diapers and other assorted trash down there.

Note that they said "fines" and not "fires."

Sadly.

Maybe dressing like a puppy and picking up trash would have cheered up people and renewed their faith in humanity more.

But he didn't even dress as a serial killer: he dressed as a fictional character. The knife wasn't real, and there is no mention of him doing anything other than walking... if he challenges the charge, he'll beat it. Which I'm sure he knows.

You say that, but I'm pretty sure the alternate timeline headline would involve him being called a Furry and potentially assaulted, cause Texass.

Then we get Matty in here feeling targeted and such - with a 50/50 chance of the thread turning into furry porn.

So, I'm not sure about the renewed faith in humanity - but picking up some trash would be a good move.

Is that against the law? What more do they want from him? He's wearing a mask and staying at six feet away from others. It's actually pretty clever. I wouldn't go within sixty feet oh him.

Sounds like a great way to get yourself shot.

Mark is a law school buddy's sometime law collaborator. They both work out of the same Galveston office. Mark is a bit of a goonish clown, but not the least bit dumb. He's a big, muscle slabbed Marine, who loves rainbow unicorns, strippers, running nearly naked with loads of other marines in their underwear in "silkies runs," to raise money. Among my favorite public antics is his flotilla of rainbow unicorn inflatable kiddie pools all sashed together and paddled around a flooded Strand to transport people safely from one bar to another. A non-public antic involved a big rubber horse head, and apparently a unsafe amount of red glitter in some friendly reproduction of a Godfather scene.
