Should insulting/harassing civic officials be illegal? Example in thread

What do you think of the man in the green skirt? He shows up at around the 15 second mark.

The first comment states that he should have been shot, which is ridiculous. No he shouldn't have been shot. But I'm wondering if he should have been arrested or shot. The cops there are not politicians or judges. They're operating at a lower rank.

I can't see that he broke any laws. I mean, maybe someone should have called the fashion polices, but that isn't arrest-worthy. :D

However, if he was impeding the police from doing their jobs, or if he touched them, then he should be arrested.

Sounds like a Chinese concept, arrest for criticizing a public official. Thank goodness we don't have that in Canada.
