From what I gather this had nothing to do with college protests per se. The powers that be thought, "Man we ought to able to get this guy for something, think hard. Oh, hey, how about the college thing?"
This is similar to what Glendale did when they told me I needed a "picketing permit" to hold a sign outside the council inauguration ceremony in June. There is no such thing, but they later tried to imply I may have needed a "special event permit." Ha!
Hey Ken, do you still think Glendale may be worse than Tucson?
BTW, My sandwich sign today at the "All Hail Glendale's Acceptance of the Football Stadium" special council meeting (complete with marching band) was ignored by the City. Assistant City Attorney Paladini said Hi, but that was it.
Front: "Glendale is spending millions again, and we didn't get to vote" Back: "Glendale: I dare you to arrest me for wearing this sign"
The media pounced on me. I was interviewed by all (I think) valley TV news channels, probably 6 or so newspaper reporters, and even KTAR.
Channels 3, 5 and 10 ran segments of my interviews on tonight's 5:00 or 5:30 news, and Channel 5 evenmentioned the previous threat of arrest that inspired the back side of my sign :-).
For just $.36 in posterboard and a couple hours of time, I successfully rained on Glendale's parade.
We gotta keep an eye out for these opportunities and jump on them.
