Description

Thursday at 3 State police woman arrested women outside Hurley post office ordering them to cease distribution of leaflets and solicitation of signatures on petition to impeach Obama. Tea Party advocates? Never expected to see such blatant interference in constitutional rights in New York. Use of force to curtail advocacy of unpopular ideas is an outrage. Pretext asserted that women were too close to road, but it is well known that charitable groups are allowed to go so far as to stop traffic on rte 209 to solicit donations;here there was no interference with traffic; this appeared to be selective enforcement based on content of ideas advocated by women. Civil officials from area were present and seemed to be involved in effort to squelch woman's protest. No effort to direct women to use of nearby location further from road. Who is responsible for this affront to the constitution. Why are we fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan if Democracy is not safe in Ulster County?
