War on leather for tough guys

[Thanks to Pascal]
Activists Missing After Declaring “War on Leather” at Motorcycle Rally, article.

Two others, previously reported missing, were discovered by fast food workers “duct taped inside several fast food restaurant dumpsters,” according to police officials.
“Something just went wrong,” said a still visibly shaken organizer of the protest. “Something just went horribly, horribly, wrong.”

I guess it's a lesson about trying to use force on somebody who is more able and willing to use force than yourself.     :-)

“...motorcycle gangs are one of the biggest abusers of wearing leather, and we decided it was high time that we let them know that we disagree with them using it…ergo, they should stop.”


...protesters arrived at the event in a vintage 1960′s era Volkswagen van and began to pelt the gang members with balloons filled with red colored water, simulating blood, and shouting “you’re murderers” to passers by. This, evidently, is when the brouhaha began.
“They peed on me!!!” charged one activist.


When confronted with the allegations of force-feeding the activists meat, using them as ad hoc latrines, leaving them incapacitated in fast-food restaurant dumpsters, and "farting on their heads", the organizer declined to comment in detail. 
"That's just our secret handshake," he assured the news reporter.

[Can't... breathe...]

“I…I was trying to show my outrage at a man with a heavy leather jacket, and he…he didn’t even care. I called him a murderer, and all he said was, ‘You can’t prove that.’

I think that's a joke, but something like that almost happened at a mountainman rendezvous I was attending several years ago.

A mud-covered guy wearing nothing but shorts, on a loud, smoky dirt bike, rode right through the shooting area screaming that we were "killing Mother Earth" with our guns and our buckskin clothes. There just happened to be a forest service cop at the site who grabbed the protester and escorted him from the rendezvous and warned him that if he came back to camp he wouldn't rescue him next time.
