    Klaffer v. Bledsoe victory. Cop apologizes, pays damages and fees. VIDEO

    Officer Bledsoe retaliated by obtaining a court order that prevented Mr. Klaffer from posting videos, pictures, and text data criticizing Officer Bledsoe on the Internet. “A government order prohibiting criticism of government is the worst kind of censorship,” explains Tony Rothert, legal director of the ACLU of Missouri.

    “Gun advocates who fear the government is infringing on the Second Amendment have every right to broadcast their beliefs,” says Jeffrey A. Mittman, the ACLU of Missouri’s executive director. “The ACLU will always push back against government censorship.”

    The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri filed a lawsuit Feb. 25, 2014, on behalf of a Second Amendment advocate whose free speech rights were violated. Last July, Jordan Klaffer was forced to remove social media postings criticizing a police officer in southeast Missouri.

    The judge who signed off on the order needs to be identified.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    ...the judge that signed the order, Bledsoe wanted, to remove the offending verbiage.

    Missouri Eastern District Court is where the civil case would/could have been heard.

    So this is the case against Bledsoe that he settle...what about the case against Klaffer originally, demanding the removal of the material? Who was that judge? Case #?

    Update: June 18, 2014

    Police Officer Jerry Bledsoe sent a written apology to Second Amendment advocate Jordan Klaffer, and agreed to pay damages, court costs and attorneys’ fees.....

    The Village of Kelso, where Bledsoe works, also assured Klaffer in writing that they will instruct police officers to not seek court orders to censor individuals who are critical of police officers’ actions


    Mighty nice of the village to assure Klaffer ...

    I complained about a state agency .. now they will not perform their required work for me.. .. awwww.
