Yeehaw! For once we get a bigoted loudmouth cop on the SIDE of the metal fans instead of looking for an excuse to bust heads. Very entertaining! :P

Well, the cop had my respect until he mentioned his beliefs. His beliefs are irrelevant. As far as the protesters, as nutjob as they may be, provided they are on the public side of the house, they can still protest if they want to.

American police, ours could take a lesson or two from them!

As far as Officer Goff (who shall hereby be refered to as Captain Cool) stating his lack of belief, he has every right to when he's confronted by religious nutters shouting about Jesus and such to him. Whenever a Christian shouts at me in the street, I tend to react in a similar way (bar removing them from my viscinity.) If I was at the show, those protestors presence would piss me off unless they were removed. They've spent their hard earned money on a ticket so they can enjoy some music and relax, the last thing they want is a group of religious prats telling them they're bad people.

AP1: He mentioned his beliefs in response to the nut job stating that he was "going to burn in hell for this". I thought it was pertinent at that juncture to inject his belief.

I would have been bothered if those protesters were yappin at me if i had paid my hard earned money to watch a metal show. He even asked them to leave several times, IDIOtS, in a police state they would've just got removed immediately.
