    ACLU takes ATF jackboots to court

    Judge denies movement to dismiss.( booooyeah boi!)

    ACLU Director of Communications Brandon Hensler says the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida received an early victory today when Senior Federal Judge Lacey A. Collier denied the ATF’s motions for summary judgment in Kilpatrick v. U.S.

    The ACLU filed the case on April 18, 2006, on behalf of Karen J. Kilpatrick, who claimed that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) violated her Free Speech rights.

    Kilpatrick was driving her blue van in Pensacola on April 19, 2004, with the slogans “Remember the Children of Waco” and “Boo ATF” written on some of the windows when she was pulled over by police for questioning by the ATF.

    The ACLU argues in the lawsuit that her First Amendment Rights to Free Speech and her Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure were violated when officers detained her for an hour, searched her car without consent, and ordered her to remove the writing on the side of her van.

    any one who breaks laws should be punished to the fullest extent of said laws. there should be a additional punishment for all the people in charge who abuse the power over the public given to them. elected officials, and law enforcement top the list. when you set the example you better be ready for the wrath of the justice system if you break any laws.

    Me too. Amazing what happens when people defend their rights. The true criminals crawl back in their holes like a sand crab. Any thing in the future amounts to retaliation by them.
