A severe blow for the freedom of speech, and victory for the advance of Sharia blasphemy laws here. “Michigan Federal Judge Allows Muslim Violence to Suppress Christian Speech; Immediate Appeal Filed,” from the American Freedom Law Center, May 14:

A Michigan federal judge today dismissed a civil rights lawsuit brought by several Christian evangelists who were violently assaulted by a hostile Muslim mob while preaching at an Arab festival last year in Dearborn, Michigan, which has the largest Muslim population in the United States. Video of the Muslim assault went viral on YouTube.

The American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed the lawsuit against Wayne County, the Wayne County Sheriff, and two Wayne County Deputy Chiefs for refusing to protect the Christians from the attack and threatening to arrest the Christians for disorderly conduct if they did not halt their speech activity and immediately leave the festival area.

Judge Patrick J. Duggan, sitting in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, granted Wayne County’s motion for summary judgment, dismissing the lawsuit. The judge also denied AFLC’s motion requesting that the court issue an order preventing the Wayne County Sheriff and his deputies from restricting the Christian evangelists from displaying their banners and signs on the public sidewalks outside of this year’s Arab Festival, which will be held in June. In the ruling, the judge stated the following: “The Court finds that the actual demonstration of violence here provided the requisite justification for [the Wayne County sheriffs’] intervention, even if the officials acted as they did because of the effect the speech had on the crowd.”

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, commented: “The First Amendment was dealt a severe blow today as a result of this ruling. Indeed, this ruling effectively empowers Muslims to silence Christian speech that they deem offensive by engaging in violence. And pursuant to this ruling, the Christian speakers are now subject to arrest for engaging in disorderly conduct on account of the Muslim hecklers’ violent response to their speech. In short, this ruling turns the First Amendment on its head.”

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added: “This fight for our fundamental right to freedom of speech does not stop here. We have filed an immediate appeal of this ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. While Judge Duggan may have been the first judge to rule on this issue, he won’t be the last. Indeed, we are prepared to take this case to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary because it is imperative that our free speech rights not be subject to mob rule. This is the United States, not Benghazi.”

At least for now.

Former CNN Headline News President Caught On Video Putting Dog Crap In Neighbor’s Mailbox

Poo-stal Delivery: CNN Executive Videoed Putting Dog Faeces In Neighbour’s Mailbox – Daily Mail

A retired CNN executive has been fined $180 for putting dog faeces through his neighbour’s postbox.

Bob Furnad, former president of CNN Headline News, placed the offending offering outside the Atlanta home of Benjamin Dameron and Ralph Miller.

The two men have video of Furnad walking his black and white dog up to the box and putting the package inside.


Solid evidence: The neighbours unwittingly filmed CNN executive Furnad’s dirty prank on their security camera

‘We were working, getting ready for a wedding and we were out on the driveway,’ Mr Dameron told CBS Atlanta.

Furnad told Covington News that he pulled the smelly stunt due to a long-standing feud.

‘We thought, well, we’re this close, we’ll check the mail box to see if the mail’s come.’

‘This was an immature act in response to years of malicious rumour mongering that I consider defamation of character,’ he said.

However, the neighbours say they have ‘no clue’ why Furnad put the package in their post.

………………

When questioned by police, the television executive confessed to the smelly stunt.

‘Mr Furnad stated that he did place a bag containing dog faeces in the victim’s mailbox,’ said Covington Police Captain Ken Malcom.

It’s hardly the type of behaviour you’d expect from one of television’s high-ranking executives.

Furnard started his career in the Sixties, working at Channel 7 in Washington D.C. on the evening news.

He quickly worked his way up to senior positions at ABC News and then at CNN, starting in 1984 as the political director.


Neighbours: The victims of the stunt, Benjamin Dameron [right] and Ralph Miller, have no idea about claims of a long-standing feud by Furnad

He retired from the network in 2001 after working as the president of headline news since 1997.

More recently, Furnad has been an associate professor at the University of Georgia and is chairman of the FaithWorks Christian Fellowship.

Not that his recent behaviour has honored the ‘love thy neighbour’ Christian mantra.

The network reports that it’s lucky for Furnad that an official U.S. postal worker didn’t find the delivery.

Mailbox vandalism can result in serious fines and even prison time.

Caught On Video: Special Education Judge Resigns After Falling Asleep During Testimony

Caught On Video: Special Education Judge Resigns After Falling Asleep During Testimony – The Blaze

How frustrated would you be if you felt that your child became suicidal because your school district refused to address or acknowledge his autism? Now imagine if during the educational court proceeding to settle the dispute with the district, the state-appointed hearing officer serving as judge and jury was caught sleeping multiple times during testimony.

…………..

This nightmare was the reality for one Houston family who told their local FOX affiliate that the fate of their special needs child was up for judgement by a man who “was actually sleeping for extended periods of time” during their “Due Process” educational court proceeding.

“In Texas, when the parents of special needs children disagree with the way their public school is educating their kid and efforts at compromise fail, there is often only one recourse to settle the dispute. It‘s called ’Due Process’, an educational court proceeding in which a state-appointed hearing officer listens to the issues and serves as judge and jury.

Larry Craddock was presiding at just such a hearing when he was captured on cell phone camera snoozing through testimony. Attorney Silver estimates Craddock slept through a quarter of the proceedings.

‘We dropped water bottles. We tried coughing, we tried jumbling our books to help stir him awake, but it wasn’t working,’ said parent Donna Harvey.

Parents who engage in a ‘due process hearing’ often expend tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees fighting school districts with much deeper pockets.

Most of the time parents lose.”

Craddock announced he would resign shortly after declining to comment to an e-mail sent by FOX 26 including video, still pictures and witness affidavits to his naps during the critical hearing. Craddock had refused to step down until Friday, claiming he was only asleep for a few minutes during the three-day hearing and not hours as the Ryan’s parents and their lawyer claim. After presented with video evidence and a demand by the parents that he pull out of the case, Craddock resigned and apologized for falling asleep, blaming his drowsiness on medication and also insisted that it was the lawyer’s responsibility to wake him up.

FOX 26 reports that this is not Craddock’s first battle with remaining awake during critical testimony. In a grievance filed with the state in 2006, a Houston-area family accused Craddock of falling asleep 15 times during their due process hearing. No action was taken by the state and Cardiac ruled in favor of the school district.

Texas Education Agency spokeswoman Debbie Ratcliffe told FOX 26 that Craddock’s cases will be re-assigned to other hearing officers.
