Man Arrested For Holding “Impeach Obama” Sign
Activist Post ^ | 8/28/2010

Posted on 09/02/2010 7:55:00 PM PDT by 2nd amendment mama

VIDEO at link is "LaRouche supporter assaulted by Alaska State Fair Security"

This first day of the 2010 Alaska State Fair starts with sunny skies and a brutal assault by security personnel on a LaRouche supporter.

At about 5pm Alaska Time, Thursday, August 26, 2010, security personnel approach Sidney Hill, a lone man peacefully displaying an impeach Obama sign near Pioneer Plaza on the Alaska State Fairgrounds in Palmer. Minutes later, a crowd assembles, additional security forces arrive, and they physically assault the man holding the sign. He’s taken to the ground with force and detained.

An unidentified Alaska State Trooper arrives to physically disperse the crowd, and at several points during the conflict, crowd members yell in support of the demonstrator’s right to speak his message. The demonstrator’s personal firearm is confiscated by fair security, and he is held captive until Palmer police arrive to escort the man away in cuffs.

Sidney Hill was in jail awaiting a pre-trial at 1:00 pm on August 27, 2010 at the Palmer Courthouse. He has been charged with Assault 4-Cause Fear Of Injury, Disorderly Conduct-Challenge To Fight, and Criminal Trespass 2- Upon Premises. However, according to the Valley Frontiersman newspaper, “Assistant District Attorney Trina Sears said her office decided not to prosecute Hill on the assault charge.”

The key to pulling this off is to dress like a Muslim or wear a sombrero. The fuzz will leave you alone.

Are the State Fairgrounds private property? They are not here, that is why I am asking and he may have not met firearms requirements for State property and functions? Not sure.

I appreciate his enthusiasm, but if I did the same thing at the Butler Fair, I would EXPECT to be arrested for not leaving the premises when asked to do so.

a lone man peacefully displaying an impeach Obama sign

From this video he seems to be provoking security so his buddy with the camera can get it all on film, maybe get a nice settlement.

Freedom of speech can slip away so quickly.

Wow! What did this guy do? Assault 4-Cause Fear Of Injury, Disorderly Conduct-Challenge To Fight, and Criminal Trespass 2- Upon Premises.

Is this based on known intent from holding a sign?

As I grow older, I seem to shake my head a lot more at where this country is headed.

Sigh. This stuff has been all over. He was told to take the LaRouche sign down. Evidently there’s a “no advertizing” rule. He went crazy. Should have done his impeachment sign without the pushing of the nut, probably.

Of course, there’s enough nuts who will probably loop this thing at least 26 times on here.

Again I voice my disapproval of police in America. They are simply unionized, power wielding humans. Thugs with law behind them. And the reason I am attacking the cop in this piece is because he could have stopped it and had them all detained. Last I check security do not have the right or authority to physically touch you. They must have LEO’s do the actual arrest.

He wasn’t arrested for carrying an “impeach obama” sign. He was arrested for going apes-— insane. The man was under the mistaken impression that he could carry a twelve foot wide display through the state park. He compares it to wearing a T shirt, but a T shirt doesn’t require a 12 foot wide berth. The officer was very polite, as the man continued to scream his lungs out. The video was conveniently edited to delete the portion where he ended up belly-to-belly with the officer screaming his lungs out.

Would you be a vendor at any function if you could not advertise? To advertise would seem to indicate promotion of a product or an event not a political idea.

Here is one of the comments under the video.... i have to say, I was thinking pretty much the same thing while watching the video:

“fu**ing coward americans. An old man assaulted in public, and most people think its a joke. This country is full of cowards. A bunch of passive, ignorant and selfish people that will ultimately receive their just reward.

I wonder how many were christians? How many went to church to espouse helping others, the poor, and the needy. Bunch of hypocrites. We are surrounded by hypocrites, cowards and selfish people.

Yes I;m angry. Next time that happens people need to congregate, and yell, and display civil disobediance. And cause a greater burden on these so-called civil servants. Look how they treat us? AND VERY FEW GET UPSET

WTF IS WRONG WITH AMERICANS. STICK YOUR FINGER DOWN YOUR THROAT AND VOMIT UP THAT BIG MAC AND DIET COKE. TURN OFF THE AMERICAN IDOL. STOP POLISHING/WORSHIPPING YOUR CAR.

Payback is a bi*ch. I can only hope that karma catches up to you all for your selfishness, ignorance and complete lack of regard for human rights. “

Maybe it’s time we stepped outside our comfort zone, just a little?

Wrong. Arrests were made for holding anti_bush signs. Google the phrase “arrested for holding an impeach Bush sign.”

They were conditioned in the '70s to "not get involved", followed by the intense drubbing of lawsuits for people with the timerity to do so.

People did not become sheep overnight, it has taken generations of conditioning to 'let the authorities handle things'.

One day you may be thinking of one of those "and then they came for me" type story. Why do you assume he lost it? All documentation speaks to him peacefully protesting.

Wouldn't it be nice if someone videoed this event?

Did you notice how one instant, the security guard was quitely talking to a screaming, raving, insulting lunatic, and the next minute, the lunatic was belly to belly with a police officer?
Did you know that screaming insults at someone in close proximity can constitute assault?
Did you know that “state fairs” typically are not state funded (not sure about Alaska), but rather “state” refers to being for the whole state, not being run by the state?
Did you know that a 12-foot-wide sign, unlike a T-shirt, can pose an obstruction? (Sure, one guys’ not likely to cause a problem, but what if large numbers of people decide to?) And that therefore, even if it were a public space, he would not be permitted to carry it without a permit?

I’m deeply troubled by cops who act as if they are the law (rather than representing the law), and who use unnecessary force, but this guy was begging to be physically removed from the premise, and then fought cops like a rabid ferret.

Gee, someone did videotape the event... and then edited out the part immediately before the police used physical force? I wonder why someone would do that. Could it possibly be that it would have shown why the police used physical force?

He did have absolutely no right to carry around a 12-foot-wide display and scream bloody blue murder. Yet I can’t help wonder what ELSE he did in those moments which were conveniently edited out of the video, immediately before the confrontation got physical. Let’s see, he was charged with threats, and challenges to a fight. Before the gap in the video, the security guard is talking quitely and calmly while he’s raving like a lunatic; after the gap, he’s belly to belly with a police officer who grabs his hand. Gee, you don’t suppose there’s something in that edited portion that the editor doesn’t feel makes his case very well, do you?
