Even though it was nearly impossible to hear council members speak, Grabelle dismissed council members' complaint that they didn't have the freedom to speak.
"From my perspective, they're free to speak," said Grabelle, who works for the California Nurses Association. "We're shouting them down because we don't want them to bring thousands of police to downtown Oakland. ... They should allow us to freely assemble."
They've been freely assembled and assaulting people and ruining businesses and vandalizing places for how long now? And shouting down someone they're upset with is 'freedom of speech'. Wonderful people, aren't they?
Just a quite post, ran across this and had to say something.
