The story reaches Germany

Germany’s Spiegel magazine covers the U.S. Park Service’s mistreatment of the Jefferson 1. If you speak German we’d love a translation Thanks to Max, here is a translation:

Brooke Oberwetter is well on her way to fame. For many bloggers, the american is a kind of resistance figher, because she wouldn’t let herself be forbid from dancing at the feet of the statue of the father of the U.S.-constitution, Thomas Jefferson. The police officers, who arrested Oberwetter, saw in her a perturbator, showing civil disobedience. Her “crime” consisted of nothing but dancing at the Jefferson memorial at night in a small group of people, while everyone enjoyed their own mp3-soundtrack.

Thanks to commenters Myself & Lars for the tip!
