"End the Fed" Pamphleteers Near Liberty Bell Handcuffed and Cited

"End the Fed" Pamphleteers Near Liberty Bell Handcuffed and Cited:
Interesting video that went up on YouTube a couple of days ago
(the date of the incident uncertain) of two pamphleteers handing
out "End the Fed" flyers near the Liberty Bell---Oh the irony!--who
are handcuffed on the ground and eventually ticketed by park
police. Their flyers were also taken by the park police.
According to the female of the pair of pampheteers, the ticket
was for "interfering with agency function" and "failure to obtain a
permit."

a bystander wonders what sort of lesson in liberty is being taught
to her son, there by the Liberty Bell:
