Quartzsite, AZ- Tuesday, May 10, 2011, just prior to the regular meeting of the Quartzsite Town Council, Mayor Ed Foster was arrested, cited and released on 3 charges pertaining to a May 5th incident involving the arrest of Jennifer “Jade” Harris-Jones.
Quartzsite, Arizona – June 12, 2011 - Members of the Quartzsite Police Officers Association, representing 80% of the Quartzsite Police Department, would like to make the following announcement. We have notified the Mayor, members of the Quartzsite Town Council and AZPOST of town policy and criminal violations by Quartzsite Police Chief Jeff Gilbert. We have expressed a vote of “No Confidence” in his leadership, and have requested his resignation.
The Mayor is challenged under a recall election beginning next month. Accusations have been made. The city council is persecuting the Mayor for giving the people a voice. The Chief of Police is also involved in the scandal. Jennifer Jones is given the floor at a city council meeting open to the public. While she is speaking the council realizes she’s about to air their dirty laundry and quickly beckons their henchman to cart her off.
The Mayor steps in and says Jones has been recognized to speak and has not violated the council’s rules, but the council ignores him and has the woman removed even as the Mayor continues to contest. The police officers ignore the Mayor of the city and remove the woman. It’s obvious who those cops work for, and it’s not the people.

You are a scholar and a gentleman, thanks for embedding the vid!
Well, I can't believe I witnessed the police disobeying the Mayor and the law, only to arrest a woman on the grounds of suspending her free speech! Or as the police like to say, stop resisting arrest. I was arrested 1 time in my life. Do you wanna know what I was arrested for? Resisting arrest that's it, the only charge!
So watching this unfold I have to laugh and ask, is this real life?edit on 5-7-2011 by Swills because: (no reason given)

Does anyone know who the dirty councilors and cops names were?
They are clearly in violation of the right to free speech and need to be investigated.
