I almost showed up at this Town Hall protest in Reston, Virginia. I decided not to. This display is amazing.
Cheeks: “I’ll charge you with whatever I want to charge you with.”
Protester: “So you make the law too?”
Cheeks: “Put the picture down please.”
Protester: “This is America – This used to be America!”
Cheeks: “It ain’t no more, okay?”
Protester: “I know! That’s the point of the picture!”
Where do we live again? This used to be America. The protester gets a “because I said so” explanation, and the cop walks away. If anyone can identify the protester, I’d love to know who it is – email me.
“It ain’t no more.” We aren’t America anymore. We are not the same country that we were, and this officer seems content with that. Either he hates America or… well, I don’t know what the other option is. This has nothing to do with signs. The sign itself is a little dumb… but that is not the point. The point is that there were no legal grounds for Cheeks to make him remove the sign, and Cheeks was clear that he was willing to make one up. The protester was threatened with a trespassing charge – which I would have LOVED to see Cheeks try to defend.
Constitutional? My thoughts are no. Allah Pundit debates.
