Push up bandit breaks the law by doing push ups on a Santa Monica median

All Jim Birch wanted to do was a bit of exercise. He’s been exercising for years on the 4th Street median in Santa Monica. As I posted earlier, people are getting cited and fined for such unruly behavior. Doing any sort of exercise except for jogging or walking is not allowed on the medians anymore.

Birch and others aren’t too happy about that. This video is a lighthearted, but sort of serious faux newscast where Birch stages a protest by doing a bit of exercising so he can get arrested–kind of. This is such a Santa Monica scene.

Look for the part in the video of people exercising on the sidewalk. There’s even a yoga mat.
