City Council: Illegal to Discuss City Matters at Your Own Dinner Table

Real News @ http://RevolutionNews.US â€”GOULD, AR - "I couldn't believe that it was real when I first read it," said UALR School of Law Dean John DiPippa.
Lawyers say Gould ordinances violate Constitution...
Disbelief is a common reaction to Gould's latest city ordinances.
"The truth is the city of Gould doesn't have the authority to tell anyone that they have no right to petition them, no right to speak and no right to exist in their city," said DiPippa.
But that's just what the ordinances do - disbanding a citizens group, forbidding the Mayor from meeting with people and stopping any groups from forming if members discuss the city without council approval.
"The fact is, if it's aimed at this group, it also extends to you talking to your mother or a church group or any other group that wants to form. A garden club! It's so broad that it can't possible comply with the First Amendment," said DiPippa.
"Pretty clearly, they go way beyond what is necessary or what is lawful," said Council Mark Hayes with the Arkansas Municipal League.
That's even what Gould's city attorney told the council. In return, members tried to fire him.
"That's why you have a higher court," said council member Sonja Farley. "To keep order when people can't keep order. That's why you have a council!"
"With this city council, it's their way or the highway," said Gould Mayor Earnest Nash. "They act more like Napolean Bonaparte. Total domination."
