WeekEnd FUNNIES: Judge Orders Cops to Stop Harassing SuperHeroes!

SuperHeroes are finally free to stomp all over The Hollywood Walk of Fame, and remain grounded amongst us mere mortals:

"Marines Wreck Super Geek’s Career"

"The four street performers who sued had argued they were wrongly arrested and intimidated by the LAPD. U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson ruled that the characters had a First Amendment and Fourth Amendment right to remain on the public sidewalk free from police persecution as long as they were not blocking the walkway or overzealously demanding change."

** UPDATE: How the Military Industrial Complex deals with its REAL 'Heroes.'

putting aside the fact that his work furthers the Military Industrial Complex agenda, he had his heart in the right place with advocating proper protection equipment over the procurement brass' sweet-heart corporatist driven deals; just like the mob, they whack you when they don't need you anymore.

okay, a broken knee-cap equivalent.

well, at least now, the former USMC civilian contractor scientist can do some REAL humane work for a change and SAVE some lives, outside of the militant paradigm with his ideas.
