When the wife arrived on scene, the man facetiously commented, “Okay, now I’m really in trouble.” The wife told the man to get in the car and apologized for her husband’s actions.
The young protesters seemed to accept the apology for the time being…
In the end, everyone agreed the First Amendment was alive and well.
