Denver cop to protesters: ‘Stop doing anything that could be construed as free speech’
Hat tip to Rocky the Liberal Rottweiler, who points us to this footage from anti-Muslim-ban protest at Denver International Airport
More from the good folks at Raw Story:
Denverite reported that over 200 people gathered at the Denver International Airport on Friday to protest President Donald Trump’s executive order banning travel from seven majority-Muslim countries.
In video posted to YouTube, Police Commander Tony Lopez can be seen advising demonstrators that they are in violation of the law.
“Stop doing anything that could be construed as free speech without a permit,” he explains.
Lopez warns in the video, which lacks context, that even carrying a copy of the U.S. Constitution was prohibited in the airport.
“I cannot carry the Constitution without a permit?” one protester asks.
“Correct,” the officer replies.
