Chicago Police Video: "You First Amendment Rights Can Be Terminated" (Brownshirts)
http://liberty.com/content/chicago-police-video-you-first-amendment-rights-can-be-terminated ^

Posted on 06/04/2012 5:57:33 PM PDT by dontreadthis

Now the Chicago police department is following Obama’s example and telling people that their First Amendment rights can be terminated anytime. Check out the incident caught on camera when a couple of news reporters were trying to cover a story outside a Chicago hospital.

Following the threat, the officer arrested the two journalists. Even though they were released a short time later, the incident has not gone unnoticed. According to the National Press Photographers Association, there have been 70 such arrests that they have documented since last September. Many of the arrests have involved the filming of news stories when the police decide they don’t want to allow it to be filmed. They seem to just arbitrarily decide on their own when it is legal and when it isn’t.

Some people are even too stupid to be cops—even in Chicago.

The time will come when the Brown Shirts will wish they had been able to terminate the Second Amendment when they go to terminate the First.

Would any of those fat slobs pass a physical? Are these the meter-maid type cops wearing bullet-proof vests? The main Constitution-shredder is huffing even just crossing the street.

We ALL need to write the Chicago Police department. A cop that thinks he can use the “F” word in talking to someone is wrong, let alone he has no understanding of what his job is or what first amendments rights are.

Something needs to be done about the police state we have become. Too many so called peace officers in combat gear, Too many cases of peace officers busting into homes and are at the wrong address. The video of peace officers roughing up the ex Marine over the weekend are just common now.
The founders wanted Govt. to fear the citizen, not the other way around.

Well if First Amendment rights are to be violated, I cannot think of a better group than Journalists to have their a$$ in the slammer.

Journalists have been selling this country down the river for decades and as we can no longer depend upon them to expose the excesses of government at all levels it is poetic justice to see them harassed by the very same gestapo they support.

We know the vast majority of Journalists would love to see us lose our 2nd Amendment rights. Commie loving pukes deserve no better.

And should this Marine just do what the cop says? Or is there a limit to what cops can tell you to do?

Hey listen, I understand things might be different in the trailer park where you live (and I have nothing against trailer parks), but I'm actually from Chicago. This cop was doing his job, he gave a lawful order, and get your damn ass out of the median so I can get to work.

How unprofessional can these cops possibly get?

With their arrogant threatening attitudes, these people are one step above a street gang.

I believe those sidewalks were built with money from the same source as those cops’ salaries; the tax payers they’re hassling. I know it may seem strange but we do not exits merely to act upon the whims of cops.

Increasingly the cops are just another street gang, albeit one with an awful sense of style.

This guy using the f-work multiple times, makes him no better than a typical gangster cockroach.

Where does he get the authority telling these people their 1st Amend rights can be terminated at any time?

Chicago: a big liberal city run by the corrupt Democrat party which gave birth to the dictator wannabe in the White House.

And conservatives like us will be blamed for this. :)

Isn’t Obamaland great? :)

Does your job require you to shoot people’s pets for the hell of it? Im just curious.

And I don’t give a damn what the reporters were doing you don’t tell someone you can suspend their 1st amendment rights. Thugs talk shit, not “professional” police officers.

Here is the legal lowdown:

A journalist can be anywhere any other citizen can be. His or her status as a journalist does not give him or her any rights to be anywhere other members of the public cannot be, nor can the State deny him or her to be anywhere the public can be.

Once their right to be in a certain place has been established, as I believe it was in this case, they can observe, record, photograph, report on, etc. anything they can see from that place, but they can't create a hazard, block the sidewalk, etc.

There are certain exceptions under civil law. For example, sitting in the window of a tall building does not give the media the right to use a 100x lens to obtain and then publish (publish is the operative word here) video of a couple in their bedroom a mile away. It becomes an expectation of privacy issue. That is, however a civil matter.

I was once arrested by local police in Massachusetts as we stood on in a public park and videoed a car accident where the driver of one of the cars was a drunk cop.

When I send the city's legal office an information copy of suit I was ready to file for myself, the videographer, the audio girl and the field producer, the stupid arresting cop, (friend of the drunk driving cop,) got a month's suspension.

He then was fired 18 moths later for being drunk on duty.

PS, ignore rudeboy. He's just a troll here to break everyone's chops. I have him zotblocked on my FR.
