Liberty forum activity idea
« on: November 06, 2008, 11:29:07 am »

In one of Dave Ridley's video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkA6hpfhBZ4 Dave suggested a activity that I was also thinking about lately. The activity would be a roll playing game on how to respond to government "authorities". The activity could be done at a really low cost. If someone would be willing to play the part of a cop and confront a group of people at a mock protest, a situation of a oral communication with a cop.

If Chris was thinking about doing this at the Liberty forum you might want to reach out to Brad Jardis to play the role of a cop, Brad could bring a level of realism to the situation since he would have a uniform. Someone else might have a cop uniform from Halloween. This would be a break from the normal sessions at the LF, the audience would be able to get involved with the session and the viewing audience could give criticisms about how the situation could have been handled differently.

I thought about it a few weeks ago after I got stopped by the Blue light gang and made a few mistakes like not recording the cop and answering some questions that I did not have to. After the stop I really wished I had the camera running because I got the cop stumped on the question of "Who is the victim?" Dave did have a good idea about having it at the Liberty Forum or Porcfest I was just thinking of doing it with a few friends.

Sounds like fun, in a twisted sort-of way.
