No sooner had I typed that I was posting my last piece, “perhaps more to provide fodder for commentary than anything else,” than I realized something I could blog on which would require little effort on my part and provide such fodder for our readers, some of whom I know delight in using our comments section as a forum for political self-expression. 🙂
And in appreciation of the support they have shown to this blog (and even to us personally), I thought I’d offer a video I found linked on Instapundit, baldilocks and Michelle Malkin. I would dare say other blogs have linked/posted it as well.
This cop is trying to block display of a poster he finds distasteful “because I just told you it couldn’t.” So, basically because the cop doesn’t like the way the man expresses his political views.
The policeman couldn’t identify a federal law, state statute or local ordinance which allowed him to block the public presentation of this poster. He didn’t identify anything which gave him the authority to act, save his badge.
Let us hope his actions are just an aberration–and not a sign of things to come.
