If sheriff Joyce apprehended us for taking photos, we’d just escape. Everyone else does, or at least CAN
HARDIN CO.—Just had an amusing little anecdote passed along to us.
Our sources in Hardin County indicated that last week there in Elizabethtown, preparing for a court hearing, sheriff Joyce Cullison retrieved a detainee who had to make a court appearance. She went to shackle him, as is the custom to bring him in front of a judge…but put the ankle shackles on his wrists.
Apparently dude allowed this little action to take place, and walked with her on over to the courthouse (not a very long distance). When they got up to the courtroom, Sheriff Joyce gets to fumbling around for the key to unlock the shackles. Seeing she wasn’t locating it, dude just did the next best (and logical) thing and slipped the ankle shackles off his wrists, handed them to her, and took his place in the courtroom.
Way to go, Joyce! We don’t have to photograph you…we have eyes all over the place. But if we ever ARE inclined to photograph you, or videotape you, or any of your officers, doing ANYTHING, including at an emergency scene within 500 feet and if one of us is in the driver’s seat and the car is running…be prepared. Because we intend to FIGHT this new “law” right along with any bullshit you might intend to pull, as we don’t intend to have our First Amendment rights infringed upon in any way. And if nothing else, we’ll argue that the people of Hardin County deserve to be told what kind of ineptitude is going on at the expense of their tax dollars.
I just can’t wait til November…can you?
