76 Year Old Veteran Arrested for Asking Public Official to Speak Louder

Tonight I’m getting personal. The links I’ve been posting tonight involve by great uncle being arrested for “disruption of a public meeting” because he asked the board members to speak loud enough for the public to hear. My uncle has dedicated much of his time to protesting US Nitrogen’s attempts to get permits to dump waste in the Nolichucky River. 

So much for free speech and civil rights, huh?
