Anti-war protester arrested in Clearwater for carrying sign that looks a lot like THIS ONE By Carol Schiffler 23 Oct 2005 (FL) "On Saturday, October 22, a peaceful demonstration at the corner of Curlew Road and U.S. 19 in Clearwater attracted no less than five squad cars due to the presence of a sign deemed 'obscene' by some anonymous motorist that phoned in a complaint. In yet another display of spectacularly heavy-handed police tactics, the protester was arrested instead of merely being asked to put down his sign." [Must see photo! The 'F*ck Bush' sign is pictured atop *police car!!*]
