While quietly walking around the Supreme Court building after going through security during open hours, one occupier was wearing a jacket with "Occupy Everything" on the back. There was no mic checking, no hollering, no signs, no "parading" and absolutely no protesting whatsoever inside the building.

An officer stops the occupier wearing the jacket and tells him he can't wear it, and will be arrested if he refuses to get rid of the jacket.

After being asked where the regulations he mentions are posted, the officers attempted to explain where they are posted at the Supreme Court....but weren't able to do so. They then proceed to arrest the occupy member anyway.
