This ain’t America no more…
Town-hall clash! Arrest threat over Obama ‘Joker’ poster
Officer to protester: This ain’t America no more
Editor’s note: Earlier reports that Officer Wesley Cheeks Jr. is a police officer were in error. Further investigation has revealed Officer Cheeks is a trained member of the Fairfax County Public Schools’ trained School Security Officer team. To contact the school’s security force, e-mail Fred Ellis, the director of safety and security for Fairfax County Public Schools, or Jim McLain, the security coordinator.
“This used to be America,” argued a protester outside a health-care town hall meeting in Reston, Va., after a security officer threatened him with arrest for holding up a sign with a picture critical of Barack Obama.
The officer’s response?
“It ain’t no more, OK?”
