The Most Ironic Signs To Hold Up While Being Arrested For Holding Up A Sign

Curated by
On Sept. 5 in the Wisconsin capitol building, a few very brave police officers arrested some of the most egregious violators of the "you-can't-hold-any-pieces-of-paper" law. Did I say law? I meant the amendment that doesn't actually apply to people holding signs at all. Seriously though, with no repercussions to the police for enforcing a bogus law, what's to stop officers from taking people away every day? Some people held signs displaying the Wisconsin constitutional article giving them the right to display signs and some people held Red Cross shirts, but they were ALL arrested on a bogus charge.
