FWIW, Glendale PD *still* hasn't gotten back to anyone (that I know) of their officer's blatant disregard for the First Amendment when two cops (one uniform, one plain clothes) told a list member that he could not quietly hold a sign that said "If Goulet has his was, we'll all have no say", protesting the councilman's statement of wanting to increase requirements for initiatives because they are inconvenient for the city.
Jay held this sign up as people were walking out of the swearing in ceremony for the recently relected councilcritters. The paper wrote about it (briefly), and the Chief (now gone) and Lieutenant both assured they would get back with comments from their Professional Standards group.
I've heard nothing.
This is how Glendale operates...they violate rights, which gets you to move now/solves the immediate issue (in this case, embarassingan ass of a councilman), then claim the next day "yeah, we probably shouldn't have done that...."
That's how Glendale operates.
