Of dissent and despots …

My email to Chicago Mayor Emanuel is several days old … I emailed Oakland Mayor Quan, too, but can’t find where I saved the content. As Oakland’s violence surpassed Chicago’s and critically injured a Mideast Vet, what follows is rather tame compared to what Mayor Quan received.

Chicago for Rahm Emanuel
33 South State Street
Chicago, IL 60603

Dear Mayor Emanuel,

I am writing to voice my disapproval of your lawless treatment of Occupy Chicago protesters.

Your supporters rightfully expected you to exhibit a firmer grasp of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and U.S. history than Republicans that continually display little knowledge or interest in our recurrently affirmed inherent rights.  The mainstream media blackout of your aggression and transgressions is ineffectual; the alternate media continues to report your escalating lawlessness and social media ensures that the world knows what you’re doing, per the Alternet link attached below.

We, the people, are getting smarter, sir.  The actions taken by public servants in the face of peaceful protesters seeking relief and redress from corrupt, bailed-out financial institutions will be remembered as either career makers or career breakers … you were not crowned King of Chicago, and you can be un-elected; a recall petition is likely already being discussed.  Dissent is your constituents’ right, despotism isn’t yours.

Release the non-violent protesters that are currently jailed and make no further arrests of non-violent protesters.  If a protester becomes violent and must be arrested, make sure that protester is allowed to make a phone call, is treated respectfully and arraigned rapidly.

Tell Chicago that you stand for living, breathing people, not the Machiavellian paper people machinations of the U.S. Supreme Court.
