    SUPREME COURT NEWS - FIRST AMENDMENT ATTACK UPON ARIZONA HARASSMENT STATUTE

    Scott Huminski v. City of Surprise, Arizona (not yet docketed in SCOTUS)
    Bonita Springs, Florida & Washington D.C.

    In a filing received by the U.S. Supreme Court, government is portrayed  fervently defending a state criminal harassment statute that makes any speech contrary to the government's goals a crime under.  AZ Rev. Stat. § 13-2921 (criminal harassment)

    Speech that tends to "alarm, annoy or harass" anyone, including government officials and police, is a crime in Arizona. Silencing dissent is the hallmark of a police state.

    No surprise that this statute exists in Arizona.  Under the patently unconstitutionally vague and overbroad harassment statute, this Supreme Court litigation is a crime as is this article when read by a resident of Arizona, say … Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  No doubt that the litigation and this article tends to "annoy" the Sheriff and like-minded residents of Arizona.
