What?!? Twerking in Front of Beaverton City Hall is a CRIME Now??

Prepare to be outraged! From KATU:

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Police arrested three women for lewd behavior, including twerking, outside Beaverton's City Hall.

Detectives say this all started when Coura Valazquez went to the building to pay a fine on Monday. She was with two friends, Brittany Medak and Leokham Yothsombath.

Police say that when the trio left the building, they started twerking in front of the windows, exposing themselves to people. Officers say Medak then began urinating in the parking lot. Witnesses told officers that Yothsombath recorded the whole thing with her cellphone.

This is RIDICULOUS! This is OUTRAGEOUS! If these women are guilty of the so-called "lewd" behavior of twerking, then we're ALL guilty of twerking!! (Urinating in the parking lot sounds like a separate issue to me. What? Were they supposed to go back inside?) I demand these women be released! I demand restitution! I demand justice! I demand... oh, wait.

Police arrested them a few blocks away from City Hall. The three had marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and prescription drugs on them, police said.

Well... okay. BUT TWERKING IS NOT A CRIME!!

Thanks for the tip, Sarah!
