Abuse of Power in Asheville?

What's wrong with a little harmless "freeway blogging" around Asheville? Apparently a whole lot.

Go read the story about an Asheville couple's experience when they held up a sign on an overpass Wednesday.

There's the police department's take on it, ACLU's involved, and AC-T came calling last night.

Police said Thursday that it would change charges against a man who held an "Impeach Bush, Cheney" sign from a bridge over Interstate 240. link

*** X-posted to Around Asheville who has been following the incident since Wednesday and has daily updates on the story.***

Everyone appears to be searching for charges to file against Jonas, Asheville's Freeway Blogger. If you have to confab, search and scrounge for a charge, wouldn't it be much simpler just to let it go? Yeah, that'll happen.

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
