Claiming free speech a women advocates drug use to kids at a neighborhood parkby Karl W Hoffman on Oct. 05, 2011, under Uncategorized
Claiming Protection under the First Amendment, the right to free speech in a public place, a women claiming association to the Green Party of Pima County, crashed a neighborhood get together. In front of kids, cops, and horrified parents the unidentified women set up a promotional table to push medical marijuana literature at the National Night Out event in Amphi Neighborhood Park. The Green Party of Pima County was unavailable for comment.
National Night Out, is a nationwide organization with a plan designed to: Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
National Night Out has been growing in popularity over the years and with the recent budget cuts hurting local police departments many believe the event couldn’t be more important.
The Tucson Police Department along with other agencies like the health department and local libraries met with residents from different communities for a night of fun but also to get everyone on the same page when it comes to improvements in the neighborhood.
Law enforcement officers as usual, were very professional and acted courteously, calming parents and children while respecting everyone’s rights.
