These cops don't strike me as

These cops don't strike me as pigs. They strike me as normal people who are enforcing their city's ordinances, and are in all likelihood are as annoyed by the stupid ordinance as the flag carriers are. This is a terrible waste of the police force's time. The cops aren't the problem. The problem, as clearly illustrated in a video comment below, is the idiot city council passing laws that make no friggin' sense whatsoever. The chairman did nothing but make excuses about trying to please everyone. He clearly doesn't have an understanding of the 1st amendment and he obviously needs some more educating. Hopefully the residents can either a) educate this guy and rescind the stupid law or b) fire his arse and his fellow councilmen and bring on people in their place to rescind the stupid law.

The cops and the 'citizens' of this town grew up together.

They went to the same grade school together. The policemen know all about what the constitution says. But opportunities to ticket the guys who used to bug you in school can't be overlooked because of some dumb old outdated law.

Both are to blame.

I am sorry but these cops took an oath to the constitution. These cops are being nice thugs. But they are still thugs because they are doing their masters (city council) bidding. They are to blame just as much as the democrat/ republican council members. The blame also go to the people that they fined because they voted for the people that made this happen. This is what happens people when you vote for Nazi Republicans and commie Democrats!

Our 1st Amendment Rights

I was handing out fliers at red light intersections, about "Ban the Red Light Cameras" in Apopka Florida. On 9/14/13 Officer Robert Cambell demanded my ID and my name & date of birth. I said no unless I am being arrested! He would not answer. eventually he arrested me for "Resisting Arrest W/O Violence" and sighted me for "obstructing Traffic"?
My charges from 9/14/13, "Resisting Arrest Without Violence" were dropped (NOLLE PROSEQUI) 11/20/13 by the state attorney, Steven Miller. I think the reason for the dismissal was that I was defending myself and after consulting with many other patriots I found a pertinent appeal (MACON v. STATE of Florida # 5D02-2587. 9/19/2003). The Appeal stated that if the infraction is not just the (Resisting Arrest Without Violence FS 843.02) then must be dismissed!
Judge Deb Blechman (this is a good Judge), did not know about this appeal. After she reviewed the appeal, she talked to the State attorney and I for a hour to discourage us from proceeding to trial in December. I said I would not negotiate and wanted to go to court so that I could use Jury Nullification! They did not want to hear the Nullification word! It worked the state dropped the charges. Now I am going to sue them for false arrest and again defend myself.

Every American should see this video

and understand what TYRANNY is. Bravo to these patriots and to the videographer. Please if some of you who received the citations decide to take this case to court, video it for liberty, this is an amazing story. This kind of tyrant behavior needs to be exposed. These petty little officers just doing their job, well that's crossing the line. I would like to see patriots arresting the unconstitutional officers while the liberty minded county sheriff comes by to cart them off to jail for violating the Bill of Rights. These intimidating tactics by these young guns with badges, pathetic. Did you take an Oath, I like that question, seems like a good name for a campaign.

Ignorance of Constitutional Law is No Excuse.

There is less of an excuse in this free country to be ignorant (or defiant) of Constitutional Law, than to be ignorant (or defiant) of the administrative Law that violates it.

thank god obama was reelected

if he wasn't i fear that most of the flag waving, cross bearing, usa, usa, chanting Romney supports would have gone right back to sleep.
i don't know these people so who knows. i heard some of them talking about oath keepers so maybe these people are awake.

i just don't see Romney people getting motivated and going out with a giant impeach Romney sign so soon. yes, maybe towards the end of his first term but not this soon after the election. they would probably still be making excuses for him like they did during the election.

by the end of his term when they realized there was not much difference it would be to late as the dems would be pushing hellary and the flag wavers would go right back to supporting/defending rawmoney over hellary. that's how tptb control the dumbed down masses....

From (Bill Clintons mentor) Dr. Carroll Quigley’s book Tragedy and Hope:
"Make the two Congressional parties more national and international... (the idea that) two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers…Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy."

Your headline is misleading.

Your headline is misleading. The man being cited is displaying a large IMPEACH Obama sign along with the flag. I believe the ordinance cited was for displaying signage on the walkway over a thoroughfare which can be dangerously distracting to drivers.

you are an idiot!

Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves...the land of liberty needs a regime change!

I sure hope the good citizens of Campbell are watching what's going on in Ukraine (YKPAIHA)...right now.
You guys could learn a lesson from the citizens of East Europe who has been "under repression" for the past 100 years.

Thomas Jefferson - Kentucky Resolutions 1798:

In Full: http://www.americanpatriotparty.cc/candidates

3. "Resolved, That it is true as a general principle, and is also expressly declared by one of the amendments to the Constitutions, that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, our prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people";

and that NO power over the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or freedom of the press being delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, all lawful powers respecting the same did of right remain, and were reserved to the States or the people:

that thus was manifested their determination to retain to themselves the right of judging how far the licentiousness of speech and of the press may be abridged without lessening their useful freedom, and how far those abuses which cannot be separated from their use should be tolerated, rather than the use be destroyed.

And thus also they guarded against ALL abridgment by the United States of the freedom of religious opinions and exercises, and retained to themselves the right of "PROTECTING THE SAME",

as this STATE, by a law passed on the general demand of its CITIZENS, HAD ALREADY PROTECTED THEM FROM 'ALL' HUMAN RESTRAINT" OR INTERFERENCE".

And that in addition to this "GENERAL PRINCIPLE" and EXPRESS DECLARATION",

"ANOTHER" and more special provision has been made by "ONE OF THE AMENDMENTS" to the Constitution, which expressly DECLARES, that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press":

thereby guarding in the same sentence, and under the same words, the freedom of religion, of speech, and of the press:

insomuch, that whatever violated either, throws down the sanctuary which covers the others, arid that libels, falsehood, and defamation, equally with heresy and false religion,

are WITHHELD from the cognizance of federal (AND STATE) tribunals.

That, therefore, the act of Congress of the United States, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, intituled "An Act in addition to the act intituled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States," which does abridge the freedom of the press, is "NOT LAW", but is "ALTOGETHER" "VOID", and of "NO FORCE".


Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788:

"But the"COMMON LAW"is"NOT EXCLUDED".There is"NOTHING" in "that paper"(APP Note: referring to the US Constitution being considered) to warrant the assertion."…..

"….A bill of rights is only an acknowledgment of the PREEXISTING CLAIM TO RIGHTS IN THE PEOPLE

They BELONG TO US AS MUCH as if they had been inserted in the Constitution."…..

"Did you take an Oath? Did you take an Oath!? You said do I have a question for you. I got a question for you! (6:51-6:57)

"Stop and think about this, who is ultimate enforcement authority of the United States Constitution, We The People, we are the enforcement mechanism. What happens when the Constitution gets broken, do you call a cop, no, you stand up for it yourself, that's the whole idea behind being an Oath Keeper." (8:24-8:41)
