Florida police give pastor Terry Jones unneeded attention

I don't think much of the pastor Terry Jones, who, despite his opposition to Islam, still has a very questionable MO. But that doesn't mean the cops had to arrest him for planning to burn Koran copies on 9-11:
ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - Anti-Islam pastor Terry Jones was arrested on a felony charge in Florida on Wednesday, police said, after announcing plans to burn nearly 3,000 copies of the Koran on a barbecue grill.

Jones was towing the grill and the kerosene-soaked holy books in the back of his pickup truck to a park in Mulberry, Florida, according to follower Stephanie Sapp, whose husband, Marvin Wayne Sapp Jr., was also arrested.

Sapp said Jones's group, Stand Up America Now, had earlier announced plans on Facebook to torch the Korans on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the U.S. The Koran is the most sacred religious text in the Muslim religion.

Jones and Sapp Jr. were each charged with unlawful conveyance of fuel, a felony, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in a statement. Jones was also charged with a misdemeanor of openly carrying a firearm.
Now maybe it was all just an arrest based on wrongful transportation of fuel, which could be dangerous in a car. But if the local sheriff department really did bust him because they despised his idea of letting the ummah know what he thinks of them, to say nothing of acting on their political opinions and not altruism, then that was wrong, and worse, it gives Jones all the attention I think they know they could've avoided lavishing him with. They'd do well enough to make their point unambiguously, or just drop the charges and stop giving people like him the attention he doesn't need.
