"...Those are some of the big things the U.S. does to silence journalism it doesn't like. But you might get a better sense of the state of free expression in the USA from a smaller case that illustrates how far we've come from the idea that citizens have a right to let their voices be heard: the case of chalk activist Jeff Olson...."

Looks like "his honor", Judge Shore, bit off more than he could chew and succumbed to media pressure (all from the alternate media, I'm sure).

The legal system is full of dicks like him, and it's getting worse by the day.
