Freeway blogging in Davis, October 09
What happens when citizens exercising their right of free speech come up against overzealous CHP officers who have decided to put an end to the display regardless of the Constitution and the law?
Watch our exciting video and find out.
To make a long story short we were within our rights to be doing what we were doing, yet a couple of CHP guys who admittedly “don’t care what the law says” came along. We tried so many times to talk with them, to reason with them, but they were not open to it. They just repeated their assertions and ordered us to leave. Threatened with arrest and jail, we took down our banner and left. But we caught almost all of it on camera.
We filed a complaint with CHP against those 2 officers on December 4. When they complete their investigation and give us a formal response I will post it on my site.
On my website you can learn how to get started with freeway blogging, what you need to know about doing it. You can read my personal opinion about the legality of freeway blogging and the legal basis for it.
Our banner said “Investigate 9-11”. Try this. It's fun!
