This is unconstitutional... where's free speech? Those cops are arresting political satirists now?

Police: Mock us in Cartoons, go to Prison

Police department with long history of internal affairs investigations looks to charge satirist with felony

When cartoonist "Mrfuddlesticks" decided to make a series of animated videos parodying the local police department in Renton, Washington, they had ample source material from the media and the public record -- the city had suffered repeated misconduct scandals in recent history. The individual used the popular animation site www.xtranormal.com to create a series of videos making fun of the city's police department. Little did they know, those videos would have them facing criminal charges [Scribd] for "cyberstalking".

I. Satirist Accused of Felony Crime for Cartoons

In what legal experts are calling a rampant abuse of power, police have taken the first steps towards filing criminal charges against the creator, claiming their creator violated the Washington State cyberstalking statute "RCW 9.61.260." A local judge at the Superior Court for King County -- James Cayce -- has signed off on a search warrant sent to Google Inc. (GOOG).

A felony for laughing and exposing the crimes of the corrupt cops...

And the corrupt cops and judges just prove this guy's point... And some people still believes that there's a rule of law in America...

i live very close to that city.
that city, and about all towns, and cities in a 20 mile radius of renton, ALL have VERY corrupted police departments. one of the worst parts about all that is the total lack of coverage, especially local, that this stuff gets.

No way! Another cop abusing his power? Don't believe it for a second. Cops are the moral compass of society, public servants we should all look up to, as they have our concerns first and formost. They serve and protect!

I don't believe this for a minute. The chances of a cop abusing his power has to be close to nil, just like a servant of the lord, a priest who has devoted his life to the word of God, would never sexually abuse a young boy..........


Anyone in law enforcement is a joke.

Those poor officers were obviously terrorized and feared for their lives. This sick wanton satirist needs to be taken to guantanamo and water-boarded until he gives up the names and locations of his fellow satire cell members.

Fine, let them file a lawsuit. And if they lose we should expect them all to resign or at least compensate the satirist and pay for his legal troubles.

On top of that, the police officers in question (even if they were not made to resign) should go on unpaid leave until they can complete a course in constitutional rights, out of their own pocket. Once they can present proof of course completion they should be able to resume work again.

Nothing wrong with getting a little educated to deny ignorance - and it seems more and more police departments across the country are getting increasingly ignorant.
