CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO — A man felt that he was harassed during an encounter with a police officer. While investigating a noise complaint, the cop demanded that the homeowner surrender his guns. The homeowner recorded the incident and placed the evidence online to expose the abusive government agent.

A judge’s “gag order” may cause him to be punished for exercising his right to free speech.
