    This is one of those things where, if I was just some dude with some type of job where an arrest or two wouldn't make or break my career, I might find it worth some misdemeanor bail money and a year or two on the naughty list just to sort that Grinch out for being such an ass to all of those kids. What a giant douchebag! If I, as an officer, were to respond to that simple battery complaint, I'd probably find a summons to be the appropriate course of action. Wouldn't want bail to put a financial restriction on anyone's Christmas dinner.

    But I guess some folks just can't be nice and respectful to other people.
    Christmas doesn't celebrate Jesus birthday like you think it does.

    . Roman pagans first introduced the holiday of Saturnalia, a week long period of lawlessness celebrated between December 17-25. During this period, Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the weeklong celebration. The festival began when Roman authorities chose “an enemy of the Roman people” to represent the “Lord of Misrule.” Each Roman community selected a victim whom they forced to indulge in food and other physical pleasures throughout the week. At the festival’s conclusion, December 25th, Roman authorities believed they were destroying the forces of darkness by brutally murdering this innocent man or woman.
    B. The ancient Greek writer poet and historian Lucian (in his dialogue entitled Saturnalia) describes the festival’s observance in his time. In addition to human sacrifice, he mentions these customs: widespread intoxication; going from house to house while singing naked; rape and other sexual license; and consuming human-shaped biscuits (still produced in some English and most German bakeries during the Christmas season).
    C. In the 4th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it. Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians.[2]
    D. The problem was that there was nothing intrinsically Christian about Saturnalia. To remedy this, these Christian leaders named Saturnalia’s concluding day, December 25th, to be Jesus’ birthday.
    E. Christians had little success, however, refining the practices of Saturnalia. As Stephen Nissenbaum, professor history at the University of Massachussetts, Amherst, writes, “In return for ensuring massive observance of the anniversary of the Savior’s birth by assigning it to this resonant date, the Church for its part tacitly agreed to allow the holiday to be celebrated more or less the way it had always been.” The earliest Christmas holidays were celebrated by drinking, sexual indulgence, singing naked in the streets (a precursor of modern caroling), etc.

    I fell out of my boat and dropped my guns somewhere out in the marsh. I rapidly found that I couldn't swim with the plate carrier so it joined the guns.


    You wish, anyways.

    What a jackass. Let them be children while they ARE children.

    I'm of the opinion that Jesus Himself would NOT approve, because it only serves at this time to hurt these kids.
