Judge: Hold This Sign

Fox News Reports

Davidson County (Tennessee) Criminal Court Judge Mark Fishburn ordered a teenager to hold a sign reading, “Respect the police, they are not pigs as I stated on my MySpace page” and “There is nothing funny about guns and nothing cool about gangs.”

The order was a condition of the probation the teenager received for a charge of coercing a witness. Bean posted threatening messages against another teenager on MySpace.

His public defender argued that this was a violation of his First Amendment rights.
