The U.S. Department of Justice claims that former Marine Fitzgerald Scott deserved to be arrested inside the U.S. Supreme Court building last year for wearing a jacket with the words “Occupy Everything."If Obama and Holder had their way, the whole country would be a First Amendment free zone for anyone who disagreed with them.
According to Wired.com, the Obama administration made that claim in a legal filing in response to a lawsuit brought by Scott, who is suing for $1 million in damages for his January 2012 arrest (video below).
While Scott claims he was protected by the First Amendment, the U.S. Department of Justice claims that the U.S. Supreme Court building’s public interior is a "First Amendment-free zone."
