A man reportedly offering free hugs outside a restaurant near downtown Madison was arrested Saturday after allegedly trying to fight anyone who would refuse.

I like this guy.

What a good use of police resources and taxpayer money. I suppose the pigs will set up some speedtraps to pay for this little misadventure. Because solving real crime doesn't bring in any revenue.

How was "stopping a physically combative trespasser harassing folks outside a restaurant" not a good use of police resources and taxpayer money?

As the second guy bailed out of jail for the ninth time, they made him "super honest pinky swear" he won't skip bail again. So problem solved.

"Can't offer free hugs without pants on. Sorry, buddy." That's what the cops told me last time. Now I'm banned from the old folks home.

If you let any random person give you a free hug, you deserve getting your pocket picked, you chump.

I'm assuming that because the person wasn't choked to death, suffocated with an officers knee, tased, and shot three times that it was a white person.

So they caught Johnson at the Willy St Fair. Makes sense.

Sorry, but I don't get the connection with Harlan Ellison. Do I need to dig out an old copy of Dangerous Visions & re-read the story?

I, for one, would never accept a free hug for someone I didn't know if the had pants on.

It makes it much easier to gauge there intentions.

I was in sat-com in the Army, after AIT they would select a few of the highest graded grads and send them to Space Command school where they dealt with placing and maintaining satellites in orbit.  I'm pretty sure that's what Space Force does now.  I just wonder if they moved Space Command out of the Army and into a separate branch so Trump could live out his prepubescent wet dream.

No need, it's a quote from "Repent, Harlequin! Said The Ticktockman" about a fanatical government going to fanatical lengths to stop someone being silly in pointing out said fanaticism.

I like that TFA's headline describes not only that the free hugs guy was arrested, but that he was "captured, arrested."   Because if it merely stated that he was arrested, I would wonder if he was still on the loose.

I assumed TFH = The Free Hug and saw nothing wrong with your statement.

Johnson, meanwhile, was initially booked on a single count of disorderly conduct, five counts of misdemeanor bail jumping, and three more for felony bail jumping.

...two counts of pogo sticking, three counts of claim jumping and one count of square dance calling.

Huh, not about the fugitive boyfriend of the white dead chick.

Mm, during a pandemic, some rando plague rat demanding physical contact IS a real crime.

Fark handle checks out.

Of course they caught him at the Willy Fair.
