Irony stung the Occupy Cleveland movement in October 2011 when about a dozen of its members were arrested in Public Square.
Protesters were taken into custody for violating curfew near the statue of Cleveland’s 35th Mayor Tom L. Johnson — an effigy erected as a testament to free speech and assembly.
But a court decision has opened the door for Occupy Cleveland or anyone else to return to Public Square for late-night protests.
Tim Russo emails PD publisher Terrance Eggers:
Thank you for being responsive. Just saw today’s story, front page, where it belonged in the first place. Your reporter Brandon Blackwell, did an excellent job, with the exception of quoting Jonathan Adler, who is a right wing blogger more than he is a constitutional law expert. Kevin O’Neill at CSU Marshall College of Law would have been more appropriate. No matter though… you did yourselves proud.
