SSCC #309 – Ohio

One last quickie:

Ohio State University Police detained
and drew their weapons on student-activist Mike Newbern for
demonstrating his support for gun rights by wearing an empty holster to a
candlelight vigil for Trayvon Martin on Wednesday.

It appears in this case it appears the cops disliked the fact he would dare do such a thing.  So they’re threatening a disorderly conduct charge also known as you did something we think should be illegal.

State Sponsored Criminal Count 309: OSU Campus Police

Because it’s totally legal to arrest someone because you dislike what they did.  You can just make up stuff just because you don’t like it.

    You’d think that any half-reasonable lawyer could get this thrown out before it even goes to trial.
