Town-hall clash! Cop vs. Obama 'Joker' poster
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | August 28, 2009 | Drew Zahn

Posted on 08/29/2009 3:41:27 AM PDT by Man50D

"This used to be America," argued a protester outside a health-care town hall meeting in Reston, Va., after a police officer threatened him with arrest for holding up a sign with a picture critical of Barack Obama.

The officer's response?

"It ain't no more, OK?"

A video of the town hall held earlier this week by Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., shows an unnamed protester standing on school grounds carrying a sign that read "Organizing for National Socialist Health Care – The Final Solution" and depicted Barack Obama in the Joker's makeup.

Officer Wesley Cheeks Jr. then told the protester that even though others were holding signs, his sign was unacceptable because of the depiction of Obama.

"But you got this with a picture," Cheeks said, explaining why the protester was being singled out from the others. "That's the difference. This has got a picture on it. That don't have a picture on it.

"Sir, leave the picture down," the officer said. "If you put the picture back up, you'll be charged with trespassing."

I don’t imagine there’s a picture of officer Cheeks ‘cause I’m just guessin’ he’s black and doesn’t want any pictures/cartoons of his most high one just like the muzzies think cartoons of you know who are grounds for death.

Officer, kindly go back to Russia where you came from. This is America and will always be. Praise be to God!

I’ll also be guessing that the cop was a UNION cop too.

I gather this is Officer Cheeks. So my earlier comment about him possibly being a freeper seems likely not to apply. It seems to me we are just about to finish up "choosing up sides" in this country and are about to "let the games begin".

I think the guy was a security guard pretending to be Paul Blart. He was not a cop IMO.

Pathetic dorks, many years ago I was awtching an event at the Kennedy Center, and president Nixon came in, after being seated, he was met with cries of tricky dicky, o used cars here etc..no one was arrested, no one chastised etc...
I sadly believe that many think today that we opressed many races and religions and got that power from such actions as the black cop has started to demonstrate, but they fail to look at the real result of democracy/republic power lies in the ideas of the people and the freedom to live their lives
wheteher its through posters of leaders, or telling that cop
You sir are a racist..
Goon squad coming out.. Oh_bummer is exposed and folks don’t like the smell..

Unacceptable is NOT a legal term.
I doubt you will find it written into any Criminal Code law.
The protestor should have asked the Officer to cite the law that made depiction of the asshat Obama look like and asshat illegal and when the officer could not, should have told him to piss off

Who wants to guess what Wesley's IQ is? And is it on a par with the average Obama supporter?

Purely aside from the fact that this took place at a memorial service, it was blood curdling in itself.

He should have let this "officer" arrest him for trespass. At that point I'm sure Hannity, Rush, Malkin and others in Conservative Media would have had a field day shining the light on this creep. This is precisely the tactic the left would use and it's precisely the tactic we need to use each and every time this sort of crap happens. Free speech means free speech, not speech that some accept and some don't.

They enemy is not Mr. Cheeks, who is just a stupid tool in this very elucidating incident now for the whole WORLD to see.

When you think about it, the enemy is much higher up than this street goon in Virginia.

We should not go "Joe The Plumber" on him, as a man, just on principle.

Our fight is with powers and principalities much higher than this loon.

Let is keep our focus on those people, and drive them from office. Glen Beck is doing a very good job on that score. And our side? Just keep buying weapons, stockpiling ammunition, buy supplies, and practicing survival procedures with your neighbors and family. They want a national civilian defense network? FINE. They will get it. Just not on THEIR terms. This will be community organizing you can believe in! Yeah baby.

Huh? I think Weeks should be sued if not incarcerated. I don't care if he's too stupid not to understand. He's part of the problem. Do you actually think he doesn't believe what he said about this "not being America anymore"?

Here are my thoughts on the subject

First off, the story seems to not be available right now. This is the message you get when you click on the story.

Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading authorization packet', system error: 0.

Hopefully, they'll get that resolved soon.

Onto the story itself. The last time I checked this was still America and people like myself do have a right to express our feeling about the messiah whether his disciples like it or not.

I actually have two Obama as Joker posters that I printed off the Internet hanging in my office. One of them has the word "SOCIALISM" on top and on the bottom it says, "Its no JOKE!"

The other picture has the word, "socialism".

Let someone try to bully or intidimate me into taking those pictures down. I don't care who or what he or she is I'll just have my dog Bo chase him or her out of the house.

Last time I checked the deed to the house had my name on it, NOT Barrack Obama's or any of his disciples.

It's time the Obamabots in positions of authority got the message of who is the boss around here.

Regards.....

Thing is he is wearing an I.D. badge on his right breast. That is usually for security guards.’

He also sounds retarded in his response. “I will charge you trespassing”? Please, there were plenty of other signs there and I bet more than a few with a “picture” on it.

Anyway, a real cop would arrest him for disturbing the peace and failure to follow a lawful command by a peace officer.

Just doesn’t sound or look right.

It’s already been determined in another case that a police officer doesn’t have the authority to bring a trespassing charge on his own authority - the trespass request must come from an owner or other authority over the private property in question.

This sort of thing happened to Danladi Moore at a town-owned shopping venue when he was carrying openly, and he was charged with trespassing by an overzealous cop, and arrested. The case was ultimately thrown out. “School board property?” Same fact pattern. Officer Cheeks needs to be harshly disciplined.

I’m disappointed and embarrassed.

I had hoped that the “New Revolution” would have been forged in a phrase that was, at least, proper english.

We’ve gone from “Give me liberty or give me death” to “It ain’t no mo”

Perhaps it’s indicative of WHY we have a revolution.

“Some fight for Freedom, Some fight for honor and some just fight because those sorry SOB’s are too lazy to learn to speak properly”

“Don’t’ tread on me no mo”

LOL

Now that I look at the video a little more he is standing in front of a Law enforcement vehicle. Although, I did just spend a considerable amount of time looking for Fairfax County and Reston Police uniforms.

Didn’t see any that look like the Cheeky officer. The border of side panel on his sleeves and the insert look nothing like the ones I could find.

Also cannot tell from the video if he is wearing a badge, cuffs, pepper spray, magazine holder. I do see the radio.

I will give that he is an officer and a lame one at that.

BTW, the chubby cheek squirrely moron next office cheek is just one odd looking smartass who couldn’t find his own ass with two hands.
