From the Advocate:
William Most, the attorney representing the plaintiffs in the Baton Rouge Metro Council case, emphasized in the lawsuit that Baton Rouge has a history of suppressing speech, particularly the voices of black citizens. The suit references a 1965 case in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it was wrong for Baton Rouge police to arrest a peaceful protester standing on a sidewalk.
He added the Council already restricts citizens to three minutes of comments.
"What does it say about Scott Wilson if he can't bear to hear three minutes of talk he doesn't like?" Most asked.
