"Robin Hensel says it’s only fair that since the city of Little Falls ordered her to take down signs in her yard supporting the Occupy Wall Street and peace movements, the city should have to remove its “We Support Our Troops” banner from a downtown bank.
She says the issue is not what her signs or the banner say — it’s about the Central Minnesota city following its own ordinance. She says her freedom of free speech has been violated, and that she has received death threats over the Internet on the issue.
Hensel said that she was barred from keeping the signs in her yard because they violated a city signage ordinance. She said the banner on the American National Bank building also violates it. She said the banner should have a permit, but it doesn’t, and it’s bigger than allowed by the ordinance."
