Every civil servant and police officer takes an oath of office and swears to uphold the U.S. Constitution and the state constitution, with an American Flag present.
Watch this outrageous confrontation between these Campbell, Wisconsin, policemen and some citizens peacefully holding signs and U.S. Flags while protesting Barack Obama this past weekend on an I-91 overpass West of La Crosse:
Here is the Oath of Office these same cops took when they joined the force:
I, __________, who have been appointed to the office of Police Officer swear that I will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the state of Wisconsin, and will faithfully discharge the duties of said office to the best of my ability. So help me God.
The First Amendment of the Constitution states:
Congress shall make no law… abridging…the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Now either the police in Campbell, WI have a piss-poor comprehension of the 1st Amendment, or someone running the show n La Crosse told them to shut down the “Overpasses for Obama Impeachment” folks down — because this is Democrat Country — big time. La Crosse county voted for Obama 58% to 41%.
These citizens were not flag-burners nor were they terrorists. Something is wrong when American citizens obey the Constitution and honor the flag, and yet are harassed and cited, compelled to appear in court before a judge and/or pay a fine.
Also note, as one protester did above, that one does NOT need a photo ID to vote in the state of Wisconsin, thanks to injunctions by liberal judges. But according to Campbell Police, you have to show a photo ID when you display an American flag.
If you do NOT think what these cops did is alright…let them know.
