Letter to Durham City Council re: restrictions on protests

(in reference to this bit of news: http://www.wral.com/violent-marches-lead-durham-to-change-protest-rules/13369730/ )

Council,

If the WRAL coverage I just read was accurate, then surely you realize that aspects of the new protest restrictions are patently unconstitutional, particularly the restrictions on time and location of protests. 

Why do you elect to waste the taxpayers’ money defending the city against the inevitable lawsuit (one that I myself will happily donate to the ACLU to fund)?

We can do better than this. Perhaps we should start by solving the real problem of police brutality, bias and incompetence.

(note that I was dead serious about funding a lawsuit: I’ll pledge the first $500)
