Fresno protesters threatened by Police Chief Dyer

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2015 in Fresno, CA, protesters turned their backs as the Chief of Police spoke. Fresno People's Media reports, "At the beginning of the month, Chief Dyer was on television explaining a plan to “crack down on protesters”. In the plan, crafted by the district attorney and the police department, protest organizers are to be identified via police surveillance and sent a letter threatening retribution in the form of citations, $6,000 restitution, and jail time if the protests continued." 

Obviously, protesters feel their First Amendment rights should be protected, not threatened by the Chief of Police with retribution, incarceration, and extortion. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King was faced with identical government injunctions against free speech and the right to protest. He responded in his final speech. See the excerpt below.

"If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand some of these illegal injunctions. Maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn't committed themselves to that over there. But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right. And so just as I say, we aren't going to let dogs or water hoses turn us around, we aren't going to let any injunction turn us around. We are going on." ~MLK in his final address in Memphis, TN 

Justice Scalia of the U.S. Supreme Court has announced that the Constitution is dead, dead, dead. Obviously, the Fresno district attorney and police department think so. The first protest organizer in Fresno who is issued a citation or arrested for organizing peaceful protests should appeal the infraction against the Constitution all the way to the Supreme Court and see how it is handled by the justices whose job it is to interpret the constitution. See if it said anything about "free speech" or the right to "petition government for a redress of grievances," or any of the other "rights" that free people should have in a government of, by and for the People.

Below is a photo of my online minister, Rev. Floyd Harris (in red), associate pastor of New Light for New Life Church of God in Fresno, California. He obeys the Word of God and speaks for the poor and oppressed and all who are appointed to destruction, no matter who threatens him (Pv. 31:8-9). Some Christian leaders still obey God. We may protest in Silicon Valley one fine day.

If Rev. +Floyd Harris  is ever arrested by Chief Dyer for organizing protests in Fresno, both my ministers would be political prisoners. +Rev Edward Pinkney was arrested in December for organizing a recall petition against a sold-out black mayor in Benton Harbor, Michigan. We are grateful that Dr. King was not the only minister who walked his talk.

Floyd Harris is the director of National Network in Action and channel director for NNIA, home of our nighttime broadcasts on Blogtalkradio at 9pm Pacific Time on Mondays for "Human Rights for Prisoners March," on Wednesdays for "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" and on Sundays for "MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting."

That's why we say #NOTAXATIONWITHOUTREPRESENTATION. We as citizens in these United States pay taxes for the constitutional provisions guaranteed by the constitution, in which life, liberty, security, the general welfare, and domestic tranquility is returned to us from our investment. If Justrice Antonin Scalia says that the constitution is dead, dead, dead, then we should make paying taxes dead, dead, dead. The freedom of peaceful assembly is a guarantee that we all pay to participate in. The Supreme Court is the dispenser of these guarantees, the the police are supposed to be the protectors and enforcers of the supreme law of the land. If they are going against their solemn oaths to serve, protect, and enforce the supreme law of the land, the Declaration of Independence provides that the People have a duty to protect their constitution by altering or abolishing the wrongful actions of any agency of the government or state that moves contrary to the constitution and the will of the people. Individuals like Scalia and Chief Dyer are the tyrants that the constitution speak of, and there are many, many more like them who would wish to remove the law of the constitution and suppress the will of the people. If it would take revolition to stop them from depriving the American people what they pay their taxes for, then so be it. #NOTAXATIONWITHOUTREPRESENTATION!
