Florida Cop Arrested For Wearing Guy Fawkes Mask At Obamacare Protest

A Florida police officer who was protesting US President Obama’s newly implemented healthcare law has been arrested because he refused to take off a Guy Fawkes mask he was wearing at a demonstration.

Ericson Harrell, 39, was wearing a mask, a black cape, and holding an inverted American flag when police approached him in Plantation, Florida. Harrell told officers he was “protesting Obamacare” but the police report notes “he refused each time” when he “was asked several times to remove his mask and produce some form of identification or tell us his name” and taken into custody.

The mask is the same one popularized in the film “V for Vendetta” and then by the activist hacking collective known as Anonymous.

I notice there's no mention of a beating. Most public people get beat for not complying or suspicious movement. LOL. That's right he is one of them this time.

I believe unless you are being charged with a crime, you do not have to identify yourself or produce ID.

Unless they have arrested every Muslim with a veil then he should sue their shorts off.
