The Police are now trespassing on private property and interfering with private contractual rights, not to mention grossly violating the Constitution. They are making our legal case better by the minute.
Seems that the CPD is blocking parking lots to churches to prevent these folks from exercising their right to worship. The CPD cops KNOW that they are violating Constitutional rights (and private property rights) and are doing so illegally because a Mayor tells them to do so.
“Just Following Orders”.
Of course, in doing so to Christian worshipers they know that it is relatively safe….The City has NOT shut down any mosques where worship takes place daily, nor are they shutting down the street parties and the party houses on the south and west sides that happen every weekend….Only the predominantly white, christian folks get this treatment.
So how can police officers, knowing that they are following illegal orders, still do what their bosses tell them? Aren’t they violating their oaths?
It is a short step (figuratively) from this to herding folks into boxcars, really.
