Burnsville Man Ticketed While 'Honking for Peace'
A nuisance or freedom of speech? A Burnsville man says he got a ticket for honking too much during the weekly Honk for Peace event.

Burnsville Police says they started getting complaints about the Thursday event and began taking photographs of the scene at Burnsville Parkway and Nicolette Avenue.

...

Palmer says he believed he was free to honk because last year, the ACLU reached an agreement with Burnsville that police wouldn't ticket people honking for peace.

One of the group members snapped pictures of police taking pictures of them and passed them along to the American Civil Liberties Union.

Recently I made a post on here about the police surveillance of this vigil outside Republican Congressman John Kline's office, now the story has started to receive some attention from the press. As soon as I get just a few more details I will be writing an update, but the ACLU is looking into this case and it is looking more and more like a major battle for free speech rights could come out of this.

If you watch the video at the link you can catch a quick glimpse of me early in the segment. Watch for the large red banner that says "Support the Troops, End the War" and that is me holding it on the left side along with Coleen Rowley on the right.
