Activists Groups Are Now Protesting People Fishing
The video of one of these incidents has now gone viral from a group protesting guys fishing at a park in Florida. But this is going a step beyond protesting to now harrassment.
Bob Hope told ABC Action News that him and his family were fishing when they were approached at first by a young boy who was soon joined by the rest of the group. The group threw their fish that they had caught back into the water and continued to chant at the fishermen. No arrest were made and the group involved had also had similar protest earlier at Chick-Fil-A.
The St. Petersburg Police Department has since issued this statement...
"When the officer arrived, the protesters were already getting in their cars. The primary concern for the officer was to restore the peace and the officer didn’t witness any disorderly conduct or criminal activity. The officer documented the call as well as the names, addresses, and auto tag numbers of the principal protesters. Whether one agrees with the message or not, any group has a right to free speech in a public park. The officer acted appropriately under the circumstances."
