Libertarians Cop Blocking at a Peaceful Sit In of NBC San Diego for Presidential Debate Inclusion

LibertarianParty SanDiego - 2013-02-08

We organized a peaceful protest on the day of the first 2012 presidential debate over the exclusion of our presidential candidate, Gov. Gary Johnson, as well as Green Party's Jill Stein, who would have also qualified for the debates if the 15% were to be stripped. We used a megaphone, and unfortunately a noise complaint was filed and responded to by the star of this film, Officer Featherly. We do not think a noise complaint is warrant for detainment, harassment, or arrest to 'get our information.' We could see NBC building guards around the corner towards the beginning of this encounter, looking on us and laughing at us. That may be a hint as to who filed the complaint. We did a similar protest the Saturday prior, with a lot more people, and we also had a megaphone. Certainly, NBC was the only entity on that Saturday that was not at work, so if the other surrounding establishments wanted to file a noise complaint they could have done it then. When you're doing civil disobedience or any kind of demonstration, your bound to break at least one silly law. We apologize, but the audio is quite raw, but it is unfiltered so it should be as original of quality as possible.
