The good news is that the cops were doing their job and correctly enforcing the law.
If they ticket people outside of the time restrictions imposed by the law then we have a real problem.
And though I support the protesters, I also dislike unnecessary noise late at night.
So everybody now understands what constitutes a "peaceful" protest.

Are they not using these ordinances over the Noise level and the amount of time people in their cars are Honking. The done exactly that when drivers were honking in support of Kelly Thomas's Supporters. They are just trying to discourage and stop others from supporting these protestors. That in itself is ridiculous. I would challenge the over use of this power when it is your entitlement to support protests.
Have there been complaints from residents? That is a question I would be asking. If not then I would be questioning the validity of the Tickets.edit on 9-10-2011 by AnonymousFem because: (no reason given)

Their argument is this; the automotive horn is a device designed for safety, not communication.

My brother received a citation for excessive honking after a high school football game. It was a rivalry game and our team won, and the crowd was going crazy. Everyone whooping and hollering im the parking lot, and people driving off honking their horns in celebration.
The rival school's district police were pulling people over and giving them citations for excessive horn honking.

Incidents like this, the pepper spraying.. and soon, I'm sure; beatings and then they'll deploy the LRADS..
Every time they ratchet it up, it angers more and more people, until they snap.
If this happens, America will never be the same again.. Another revolution.
I think the Wall street people should also be in front of the Capitol, DEMANDING every single Senator (And reps) to resign and elect new people.. not ancient fossils that have been there for decades. If they can't agree on how to handle problems, maybe we need NEW 'leaders' that can! BOTH Dem and Reb are horribly guilty.edit on 10/9/2011 by Pharyax because: (no reason given)edit on 10/9/2011 by Pharyax because: (no reason given)
