Obama's inauguration: In the crowd
Tree Man Disturbs Inaguration
A man, approximately 50, found himself a great view for the 57th presidential inauguration. The only problem was that he wasn't there to watch President Obama speak, but rather to preach his ideals to the masses. Holding a sign that stated "Pray to end abortion" on one side and "Defund Planned Parenthood" on the reverse side, he never seemed to let up for 6 hours straight (and obviously intensifying when the President began speaking). Police did everything they could to coax him out of the tree, but he would have none of it until most people cleared out of the green south-standing section well after the event was over. He was then taken into custody by Capitol Police.
