The fiscal cost of the City of Los Angeles restriction of Free Speech at public meetings, continues to rise as Venice African-American Boardwalk Vendor Michael Hunt is awarded $215,000 for his ejection from a Recreation & Parks Commission Meeting, which he spoke while wearing KKK garb.
The likes of Michael Hunt (in KKK Garb) and David "Zuma Dogg" Saltzberg exposed the limitation on Free Speech by the City Clowncil Central Committee.

When an Act of Outrage exposes a limitation on Free Speech, the taxpayers are bound to pay, again.
Many can easily find outrage in Michael Hunt's Act of Speech, especially when garbed in Klan wear. Yet, Hunt, along with fellow Venice Boardwalk Merchants Matt Dowd and David "Zuma Dogg" Saltzberg rightfully brought their grievances to City Hall and via their masterful use of Public Comment time, exposed the City Clowncil Central Committee reactive proclivities that have cost the taxpayers close to $1 Million Dollars in legal fees.
Instead of the City Clowncil Central Committee embracing Speech, the City Clowncil Central Committee Strongman Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson led body has enacted protocols that discourage Public Comment via cutting back on time, agenda placement, and the shutdown of off site locations among others.
In reality, while many will focus on the Act of Outrage by Hunt, the recent actions of the City Clowncil Central Committee and the repugnant (and legally costly) behavior by the likes of CD 14 City Clowncil Central Committee Member Jose Huizar, are more egregious. Thus, if outing the nefarious actions of the City Clowncil Central Committee as a whole, or the questionable act of character of the likes of Clowncilman Huizar, requires an Act of Outrage, then onwards with your First Amendment-protected exercise in expression.
