Latest Lesson on Free Speech

This seems to be a continuing learning process for those radical enough to believe free speech is not limited to corporate electioneering and lobbying cash. Americans better get with the program. Free speech is not free, and the price for the non-wealthy is steep.

An authoritarian personality, in a St. Louis area police uniform, decided to go after a woman's job because she dared to speak out against police brutality. This is what is seen as a threat to the authoritarian personalities in uniform, apart from being black, of course.  

The cop said she was "entitled" to her "opinion" against police brutality, but was not entitled to her job apparently, 

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

A woman who criticized police on Twitter says an officer called her boss in an attempt to get her fired, so she filed a formal complaint “to return the favor.”

Leigh Maibes, a real estate agent who tweets under the alias “Short Stack” and has been active on social media during the Ferguson protests, posted a link Wednesday to a YouTube video of a phone conversation with Officer Keith Novara.

It's good to know the corporate police state is on the job suppressing “bad speech” and protecting the interests and "good speech" of those who matter most to a corporate police state.

If you want to know who runs the place, notice the tolerance, and intolerance, to hate or criticism.
