And just who is going to arrest the locals and for what, taking pictures or parking on a public street..??? I think you need to start carrying a copy of the Bill of Rights with you...

Town police are posted there by request of the other shop owners in the little strip mall to stop them from parking these buses in front of their shops and hurting their business. I think a few of the locals must have started yelling questions at the bus people and others got scared that something might happen.............this being the south it isn't uncommon for our good ol boys to get quite riled up about stuff they don't see everyday, and a few tend to take things into their own hands. But I don't forsee getting any flack for going there and taking pics.............and if I do I will just shoot the pics from the adjoining parking lot, this is after all America and I do have my rights!

As you say, they are hurting legitimate business and civic life by their actions.
Get the busloads out of town permanently!
