According to this article, "Park shut down by mayor to thwart rally," in today's Blade, Mayor Carty Finkbeiner ordered a local park to be closed to prevent a group of 8-10 people from holding a rally. The article says the "police received word of a rally with potential for confrontation...."
Potential... no actual confrontation or other inappropriate behavior...
Has the mayor ever heard the term "freedom of assembly" and does anyone think he consulted with his law department before taking such action?
