I want you to do everything in your power, to show support for this blog, MPD Enforcer 2.0 . Why do you ask? Because a Government Thug, the Police Director of Memphis doesn’t like what the blog has to say.
Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin and the city of Memphis have filed a lawsuit to learn who operates a blog harshly critical of Godwin and his department. The lawsuit asks AOL to produce all information related to the identity of an e-mail address linked to MPD Enforcer 2.0 a blog popular with police officers that has been extremely critical of police leadership at 201 Poplar.
That’s right folks. These people, some even police officers who are critical of their Government Over Lords, are being targeted for their Freedom of Speech. This is not right. In fact, this is scary.
Back to the article…”We are quite interested in preserving the anonymity of the bloggers,” said Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee. “Anonymous speech has long been protected speech under the First Amendment.”
Now, take a second and just read the last two posts I’ve put on this blog. I am extremely critical of the Government. I can not imagine for the life of me, being sued because they don’t like what I have to say. For you hard-core Republicans (sorry, you aren’t Conservative) this would be like, if Sen. B.O. became President and started going after you guys, because you don’t agree with his policy’s. And for you Leftists, this would be like, if your worse night-mare of El Presidente Bush, was coming true.
This is something both sides of the blog world can get behind. If this case goes forward, and say a Government Judge sides with his Government Crony’s, who’s to say, what site is next. Stop the ACLU? Daily Kos? RedState? Gun Toting Liberal? or will it be a “little guy” blog that will feel the brunt of the Almighty Federal Government, like MPD Enforcer 2.0.
This is something we all should be paying attention to. These are our Rights as Americans. And I will be damned if this kind of thing is tolerated.
