Terry Jones Takes Advantage of a “Free Speech Zone”

Terry Jones Takes Advantage of a “Free Speech Zone”

As you may remember, a week ago today a jury in Dearborn, Michigan denied pastor Terry Jones the right to demonstrate against sharia in front of the Islamic Center of North America. Mr. Jones was briefly jailed for his trouble after refusing to pay a $1 “peace bond”.

He vowed to return to Dearborn in a week to demonstrate in front of City Hall, and he kept his word. This time he chose to protest in one of the city’s specially designated “free speech zones”. Counter-protesters across the street were unhappy with Mr. Jones’ exercise of his First Amendment rights, and broke through the barrier for a few moments in an attempt to accost the hated Koran-burner from Florida. Some of the “youths” threw bottles and shoes at the pastor, and several were arrested.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for YouTubing this video:

Note: the young reporter who narrates most of this video repeatedly uses the word “podium” when she in fact means “lectern” — an all-too-common error nowadays, alas.

Hat tip: RE.
