This slimeball organization needs to be put out of it's misery. It's membership list should be posted, with addressed etc, and citizens should take appropriate action to eliminate this threat

Hang one that says: Allahu Akbar and see if they make any objections about that.

I'm thinking, no, they wouldn't.

At least it sure seems as if the ACLU is anti-Christian, anti-2nd Amendment, and anti-legal immigration. Wonder if they will represent this guy or his opponents?

Philly Police Harass, Threaten to Shoot Man Legally Carrying Gun
by John Stossel | May 16, 2011

"A story in today's Philadelphia Daily News shows why it's so important that citizens be allowed to videotape cops - it can be citizens' only way to fight back against police abuse of power.

"This incident happened several weeks ago in Philadelphia to Mark Fiorino, a 25-year-old IT worker who carries a gun on his hip at all times for self defense. He got the gun after several friends were mugged.

"But he didn't count on attacks by police:"

"When they learned that they were in the wrong, they let him go.

"But only temporarily. Fiorino posted the audio recordings on youtube, and now they are harassing him again:

"A new investigation was launched, and last month the District Attorney's Office decided to charge Fiorino with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct because, a spokeswoman said, he refused to cooperate with police... He's scheduled for trial in July.

"If one listens to the audiotapes, it's hard to imagine how a reasonable person could charge Fiorino (and not the cops) for disorderly conduct."

Wow! Here's a story where the ACLU is actually siding with religious free speech!

http://www.wnd.com/index.php...
"Liberty Institute noted that a wide range of organizations from conservative family-oriented ministries to the ACLU argued together that the school's request should be denied."
