No Pamphlets in DC

Over the past weekend I was in Washington, DC doing some sight-seeing on the mall (where all of the monuments are). I snapped this photo of a cop yelling at some guy on the street handing out pamphlets. The cop was pretty much a real jerk about it; according to him it’s illegal to hand out pamphlets in a federal “park”, though I don’t really see what the big deal was. The guy wasn’t bothering anyone and was exercising his right to free speech by handing out the pamphlet.
