Officials Increasingly Refusing Unlawful Orders to Arrest “Occupy” Protesters

Police and Other Officials Are Increasingly Refusing Unconstitutional Orders to Arrest Protesters

Last week, New York police defied governor Cuomo’s orders to arrest hundreds of “Occupy Albany” protesters.

Today, a Nashville judge refused the Tennessee governor’s orders to break up “Occupy Nashville”.


A Baltimore police union and two firefighters unions have written to Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (who wants to shut down Occupy Baltimore) asking that the protests be allowed to continue.

And city employees from Irvine, California to Providence, Rhode Island have correctly said that – whether or not they agree with the protesters’ views – the protesters’ have the right of free speech and free assembly under the Constitution.

Perhaps this is the start of justice for 99% … instead of just the top 1%.  See this, this, this, this, this, this and this.
