Acorn: No Free Speech in Baton Rouge

by Maxi Malone

Police enforce censorship at Healthcare conference…

BR-1A private citizen used her video camera to shoot this incident after a scheduled press in Baton Rouge last week.

“You can’t go over there,” stated the camerawoman.

“Why not?” asked the woman in the black and white shirt, as she continued to walk, passing between an Acorn representative and a Baton Rouge police officer. As she neared a group outside the federal building the officer called her back.

“Why can’t she be there? She’s just drinking her water, not doing anything wrong,” questioned the camerawoman. “What’s the problem?”

“The problem is we’re not letting anyone interact,” replied the BRPD officer.

The women moved on and ran into resident in favorBR-2 of the Healthcare plan. During a friendly debate the man was approached by the same officer and warned that he could not interact … talk to the media, he said.


The camerawoman was then approached by a security guard and informed that she must obey an officer or she was guilty of resisting.

“Even if he’s breaking the law?” she shot back. “He’s telling us that we can’t talk.”

Is this free speech? Is this our America? Is it slipping away?
