I wasn’t actually thrilled with the idea of having the rally during the Pumpkin Fest. I suggested we carve some creative Jack-O-Lanterns having a 420 rally and place them in the square as a quiet alternative. Well, others chose to continue, which is their right, so I did what I could to support them and at least make sure as many people as possible can witness police victimizing innocent people who own their own bodies with the tired excuse of “just doing my job”. If my job required me to victimize innocents, I would quit. I’d sooner flip burgers or sweep streets or something.
UPDATE: I took out the two-bit whore comment. It was a bit over the top as well as just not a very nice thing to say. I apologize to any prostitutes I may have offended.
