So, just on a whim, I read the opinion on State v. E.J.J.
, which seemed a fairly straightforward "obstruction of justice" case, which the State Supreme Court overturned because telling the police you disagree with their actions is protected by the First Amendment, even if you use naughty words and refuse to go somewhere the police can't hear you.
Then I got to the concurring opinion by Justice González. Hot damn! Freedom, suckers! Liberty! This guy has got words
for those that would tell people not to criticize the police to their face, especially brown people. I'm pretty sure I voted for him last time, but Justice González definitely
has my vote next time around.http://www.courts.wa.gov/opinions/pdf/886946.pdf
