Wesley Cheeks-This ain't America no mo

Anyone else hear the audio of this jackass telling a protester he can't have his protest sign with a picture of Obama as the joker? I hope everyone on both sides realizes this is Fascism. I'm sure more details will come out, but from what I hear this is a blatant violation of the first amendment.

Sounds like one idiot officer if you ask me. The man was being polite but firm. How else would you like him to act?

I'm not from either 'side' which is why I've been saying this is fascism for a long time...

But then listen to the pathetic weenie 3rd guy, first amendments are different in schools.

first amendment rights are different on school property for students and faculty of that school only during school hours.

A professional crap-stirrer against an inarticulate policeman. Snore.

Why would the ACLU be anywhere? It's just two idiots butting heads.

The fact that one of the "idiots" is a law enforcement government employee sworn to uphold the law and protect the rights of citizens is not apparent to you of relevant to your analysis? A government official acting under the color of authority denying the 1st amendment right of free speech of a citizen is not within the purview and congruent with the mission statement of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Ah! couldn't see from the video that he was a renta-cop, so he would not be "sworn law enforcement". The question of a school administration's authority to restrict the rights of students would seem not to apply with the non-school public use of these public places! It would seem that the security personnel employed by a school administration would not have any authority to restrict the rights of citizens assembling on public property that does not endanger or disrupt the education of students!

Both sides? Is that all we have - two sides? I wasn't aware that our society is divided so neatly. Given all the different sorts of characters I meet, I would have thought that it was more complicated than that.

That would explain the absense of the ACLU. I wonder what would have happened if the colors were reversed? Why isn't Obama calling the cop stupid and racist? What a crock!

I don't know why people are calling these men boneheads. They both sound calm and rational to me. Officer Cheeks seemed to be operating under orders not to permit signs with pictures. I believe that he is employed by the school board, although I might be mistaken about that. Does anyone know why a school board would have such a rule?

They both were polite but firm. Why did you call the officer an idiot? It sounded to me as if he was following orders. The problem, if there is one, seems to be with the orders, unless Cheeks just got it wrong.
