Protester asserts his 1st amendment rights writing political statements in chalk on city sidewalk and gets arrested. Sues the city and wins a $6,000 award. So what's the problem?

The attorney fees paid by the city for both sides cost $190K!

When the paper contacted the protester for a comment he quoted Shakespeare.... "The first thing we need to do, let's kill all the lawyers".

That money could have gone to a much better cause.

I honestly believe these people are the root of all evil.






Until you need one.

You really have to wonder what these people were thinking. Apparently it could have been settled for $5K. You can't hardly even talk to an attorney for less than $5K, much less have them show up in court.

^Maybe the mayor was attempting to payback some attorneys that contributed handsomely to his campaign??
