Police Officer Arrested for Standing Up for The First Amendment
Quote:Ericson Harrell, 15 year veteran of the florida Police Department and a former marine decided to make a statement by standing on public sidewalk wearing a mask.

His actions though completely legal landed him in jail.

Now he's speaking out about what happened.

Mr. Harrell knew the law, and he knew what he was doing was legal, so when he when confronted by an officer demanding that he remove his mask and identify himself he didn't back down.

Rather than identify himself as a cop, which may have afforded him preferential treatment Harrell referred only to his first amendment rights when he made his stand. He didn't reveal the fact that he was an officer until after he was already in custody.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
The law? The law is a human institution...
