As Mayor Eric "Gar-Soft-ee" scuttles another attempt to revisit the South LA Church where "Black Lives Matter" Protesters prompted a Mayoral Retreat, the likes of LAPD Blogger Jasmyne Cannick and Boyle Heights Community Activist Carlos Montes are standing up against the Political Machine's attacks on their Right to Free Speech.
** Blogger's Note:
From the First Amendment of the United States Constitution
, as a refresher for the likes of Mayor Eric "Gar-Soft-ee", LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar ..........., The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitutionprohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances. We offer up this Free Speech reminder in the spirit of reminding the politicos listed above, that retaliating against the likes of civic activists, LAPD Blogger Jasmyne Cannick and and Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council Member Carlos Montes, has and will, engender a blowback of protests (and possible monetary losses in Civil Court). Cannick, who's LAPD-centric Blog has become the cyberthorn in the backside of LAPD Chief Charley Beck,, is facing trumped-up charges of "resisting police" but has yet to be presented with the evidence against her. Montes, who is a Leftist Progressive, is facing a "Petition of Removal" from the Bole Heights Neighborhood Council for being a alleged, disrupted persona. The actions against Montes are not the first time that an NC Member who was not a Councilman Huizar ally, has been targeted by the Officeholder supporters. A few years back, Community Activist (and "-3 Huizar Critic") Jose Aguilar was removed from the Office of President via dubious reasons. While disagreeing on 90% plus on the political positions of both Cannick and Montes, both should be accorded the respect for their efforts in disclosing wrong-doings and standing up for their principles ........, without retaliation from the Political Machine---Scott Johnson.
Your thoughts ..............
