I already gave out one Cone of Shame award today. Officer Wesley Cheeks just needs a Bozo the Clown mask. Watch as he tells a town hall protester in Reston, Virginia, that he can “charge [him] with whatever I want to” because the protester is holding up a sign he doesn’t like.
When the protester asks why other sign-holders aren’t being threatened with trespassing charges, the officer says it’s because the protester’s sign has a picture.
“This used to be America!” the protester exclaims.
The officer retorts: “It ain’t no more, okay?”
No. Not okay.
And yes, this guy would make a perfect candidate for Obama’s civilian defense corps.
Hat tip: Allahpundit, who mulls over the constitutional questions.
