Statement from President Pro Tem Elizabeth Brown on Curfew and Failure to Disperse Charges

[COLUMBUS, OH] The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to President Pro Tem Elizabeth Brown:  

"First Amendment rights are paramount, and this past week has been a profound and historic display of those rights in Columbus.

"I am calling for the charges against protesters that relate to violating curfew or failure to disperse during this week's demonstrations to be dropped. We should not police free speech, and people certainly do not need to face penalty by their government for exercising theirs."
