Arizona Town Council Declares State of Emergency After Being Criticized
Whatever is in the drinking water in Arizona lately seems to be spreading: in the small town of Quartzite, the Orwellian "town council" of overlordsdeclared the mayor fired and the sheriff in charge of everything, martial law, everyone must wear hoods, etc., because of threats to The Council. It began when these council members arrested a woman for speaking at a public meeting and saying things they did not like, so, uh, "Guantanamo her" they decided. Video of the arrest is now on YouTube, where it is "going viral" like the stuff in the water, and the mayor wants the FBI or Governor Brewer or just ANYONE to intervene.
From the Associated Press:
The council's declaration put Police Chief Jeff Gilbert in charge, making Foster the "deputy chief executive of nothing right now," he said. It also allows the five-member council to meet without public notice and suspend all public comment at the meetings until the members declare the state of emergency over.
"I'm going to tell you frankly, this council is out of control," Foster said. "The chief has been out of control for some time, and I've asked the state government to help a number of times," to no avail.
Foster described the government and Gilbert as corrupt and abusive of their power, and said all their recent actions are frantic efforts to cover up millions of dollars lining some of their pockets.
Will this be Arizona's "Arab Spring?" HAS THE SHARIA LAW FINALLY INVADED ARIZONA? They made rules against that, to what avail?
Oh well, here is the video of this nice lady being arrested for seriously doing nothing at all besides speaking calmly during the public comments section of the town meeting:
