Wausau Once Again
Vice Squad won't let go of the story of the antiwar protester in Wausau, Wisconsin who was first ticketed, and then unticketed, for obscenity. Turns out it was all a result of miscommunication between the police and the city attorney's office. The city attorney meant to get the protester for disturbing the peace, not obscenity. Yes, that's right, a non-violent anti-war demonstrator with a "This war is Bushit" sign was supposed to be ticketed for disturbing the peace. Seems like the city attorney's office should communicate some more with the US Constitution.
