Man Arrested for Holding Sign in Front of PD: "Fuck Free Speech - Stamford PD."
Signs, signs, everywhere are signs, and Connecticut police are doing all they can to shut them down.
Last week, Stamford police arrested a man for standing a block away from a police cell phone checkpoint with a sign that read: "Cops ahead" to warn approaching drivers.
This week, police arrested his friend for standing in front of the police department with a sign that read: "Fuck Free Speech - Stamford PD" to protest his friend's arrest.
The Stamford Police Department obviously has an issue with the First Amendment, using petty contempt-of-cop charges to crack down on freedom of speech.
Stamford still have possession of Picard's Go-Pro camera and Friend's two cell phones, all which contain footage of their arrests.
The man who recorded Picard's arrest, Dawud Talib, was not arrested.
Picard is a longtime activist who frequently does open carry demonstrations because it is legal to open carry in Connecticut.
