      BTW, Helen. If you haven’t heard – Cecil brought up your arrest at the City Council’s Public Safety Committee meeting on Tuesday. APD representative Capt. Daryl Fisher said that your arrest was ordered by an un-named patrol officer who watched the video & decided on his own, without consulting any superiors, APD lawyers, or prosecutors, to fill out a warrant for you. As you know, after consulting with the DA, they dropped the charges. But still, I said I thought that was a little disturbing that a low-level officer could order something like that in the first place, & he sort of shrugged in embarrassment…

      I don’t which is worse – that a wildly un-Constitutional act like that could happen so casually, or that there hasn’t been more of an uproar about it.

    It’s irony if you buy into the hype about “progressive, artsy, forward thinking Asheville.” The kind of hype promoted by the very people who would deny rights to folks involved in their civic duty of dissent.

      …the kind of hype promoted by the very people who would slap a corporate logo on the City at the drop of a few grand.

    Weird, I thought this was about a new iphone app for the Roney family.

    Ha! Kimboronni, the irony is it’s not a new app at all, but a very old app. Squash dissent with the iron hammer of authority.
