Infuriated by their inability to defeat Rob Brayshaw in court on false criminalcharges, the cops and their cohorts in Tallahassee’s political establishmentactually had the nerve to refile the false charges again after dismissal. Theyoriginally turned to the legislature for revenge against the public in 1972 with thewriting of the Unconstitutional Law 843.17 even at that time. This was before theInternet, Florida Sunshine Laws, and Jury Member Lists of Names and Addresses.Many Supreme Court Cases have obviously existed in 40 years for Free Speechand Free Press Cases that would make the law completely relic and obsolete evenwhen it had unconstitutional First Amendment Flaws as written now in theInternet Era of 2010 since 1972.Joined by police unions from all across Florida State, the police have mounted amassive lobbying campaign to help ram through a future ugly piece of custom-tailored special-interest legislation during the next Legislation in Session inTallahassee.
In response to Brayshaw’s High courtroom victory,(and the lobbying of the cops), Florida State issponsoring future legislation which would subvertthe Constitution, set aside the decision of the court,and establish Secret Police in Florida State.
The Tallahassee Police again want to sponsor
which would effectivelytransform Florida’s law enforcement officers into shadowy Secret Police.
The future bill
provision for a new Florida Statute of 843.17 would grant thepolice unconstitutional benefits and special privileges; confer wholesaleimmunity upon them; create exceptionally broad and should have beenpreviously non-existent as rights exclusively for their benefit; and furtherexpand their elite status relative to the common citizenry. None of thesenewly-proposed rights would be afforded to any other citizens. To thecontrary-- each of these so-called rights would decimate vital, historically-consecrated, Constitutionally-protected rights of common citizens.
Passage of this unconstitutional bill of Florida Statute 843.17 again would make acomplete mockery of the oath taken by Florida Police and Florida StateLegislators to uphold and defend the US Constitution. Already, a grass-rootsmovement has sprung up by Brayshaw and his sponsors to ensure the defeat of this future plan in the making for the next elections in the Florida Legislation todefeat their plans. The Florida Police Benevolent Association stated that theywould try and craft another law for their members since the ruling will stand.Unsuccessfully attempting to defend her assault on the Constitution, AnnetteGarrett along with the Tallahassee Police and State Attorney’s Office of Willie
