Skip to comments.Va. Dem. to supporters: Break the law, use police to harass Tea Party members

Mike Dickinson, the Virginia Democrat who wants the House seat currently held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., is not on the ballot in his district, but continues to issue unhinged tweets as though he is a viable candidate. On Sunday, he urged his supporters to violate Virginia law and use the police to harass members of the Tea Party.
"Use the Supreme Court ruling to harass tea party members. When you see them call the police," he tweeted.
"You do realize you are advocating people to make false statements to the Police? That's, last I checked, a crime," one person said in response.
It does, in fact, appear that Dickinson is urging his followers to violate Virginia law, which says false reports to law enforcement is a Class 1 misdemeanor. Virginia law clearly states it is illegal to "knowingly give a false report as to the commission of any crime to any law-enforcement official with intent to mislead."
The law also says it is illegal to call police "without just cause and with intent to interfere with the operations of any law-enforcement official, to call or summon any law-enforcement official by telephone or other means, including engagement or activation of an automatic emergency alarm." Clearly, Dickinson is encouraging followers to call police without just cause.
Dickinson cited a Supreme Court ruling that says police can act on an anonymous tip to stop motorists who may be violating the law. But it is not illegal to be a member of the Tea Party -- at least not yet.

Way to set the bar! LOL
LOL Thank you.
You assume that the gop(e) will not break their necks to give the marxist party equality and do everything they can to get along, just like always.
I would love if the opposite occurred and the gop(e) developed a spine and played like a bloodsport street fighter.
Interesting tactic. I think I will use it as well. Whenever I see “coexist, no farms no food, Obama, endless war.......on the back of a car, I will call the police.

Simple. Just make stuff up, and that would be enough to cause problems.
I sincerely doubt hat...
...the "straight" part, I mean...
Don’t forget “Stop gentrification”,Spike Lee’s favorite.
I haven’t heard of this. I had to look it up. Interesting, the truth is stranger than fiction.
That reminds me, I had to watch Spike Lee films for a freshman writing class, and write essays on them. It was just 3 of them. It met a few liberal requirements (writing, cultural diversity), I needed for my engineering degree. It was eye opening, never imagined some people held such opinions.
Tea Party to supporters: Watch out for wimpy rat Mike Dickinson swinging his purth.
