Cartoonist Targeted With Criminal Probe For Mocking Police

• .
The Renton City Prosecutor wants to send a cartoonist to jail for mocking the police department in a series of animated Internet videos.The "South-Park"-style animations parody everything from officers having sex on duty to certain personnel getting promoted without necessary qualifications. While the city wants to criminalize the cartoons, First Amendment rights advocates say the move is an "extreme abuse of power."

    Has anyone noticed that it doesn't even bother these simpletons and misfits when they expose their true worth and purpose? Though it's not too suprising that this is happening the the People's Republic of Washington, it's hardly anything new or an isolated incident. (Seems the Washington Gestapo has determined that they have enough political backing and firepower to abuse any law (constitution) or citizen they choose - openly.)

   Seems that having an "opinion" or trying to exercise the right to free speech is nearly as criminal as being a former Marine and trying to defend your life, family, and home; being homeless, in and of itself; or, horror of horrors, being a child and daring to openly push "demon lemonade" from a stand on private property. (Personally, I expect no less from any so-called "police agency". This sort of thing is about all they're really able to do...And, they can't do it very well. Wake up! This is the future, unless we take back our rights and our lives from the "New Gestapo"! Bering in mind, of course, that they are doing what the PEOPLE YOU VOTED FOR are allowing them to do! Doesn't make it right or "legal", but it allows some context.)

    Based on my knowledge and limited experience, the cartoonist in question, needs to do more research: He missed so many "topics" as to have almost done nothing.

     What does it take to get people to demand protection and service, instead of violence, ignorance, and abuse, from that jokingly passes for law enforcement in the country? [Fact: Almost every time I try to explain what every citizen in the U.S. is up against, regarding the overreaching and biased nature of every agency, I am told that I am being unreasonable or overstating my "opinions". I don't care who doesn't believe me, but I will stand by my interpretation of the "known facts" and "public record", not to mention my own decades of trainin, teaching, study, and experience. I KNOW WHAT I KNOW!  I am, however, really weary of being told by people who couldn't hit the ground if they threw themselves at it, how to do and think based on their dellusions and ignorance...Never have responded well to being told how to do things the wrong way.]

Sounds to me like another guberment official that should be tried for treason.

I am starting to believe that they are all psychopaths.

Cartoonists and cameramen are always the first to go up against the wall.
