Houston Man Ticketed for "Criminal Mischief" for Posting "Obama as Joker" Flyers in Neighborhood - Video 9/17/09
Here is a video report about a Houston man who says he was ticketed by police for "criminal mischief" because he posted "Obama as Joker" posters in his neighborhood. Apparently someone who saw the poster called police, and he alleges the police came to his home and "slammed him against a car" in his own driveway, handcuffed him, and threw him in the back of the car. He was ticketed and released.
NOTE: The person who posted this video has inserted some editorial comments into the video as it plays. They make an interesting observation that the reporter doing the story stands in front of an "Obama - HOPE" mural painted on an outside wall even while the report is about a man being ticketed for posting "Obama as Joker" flyers.
