Douglasville Ga law will over-ride Constitutional Freedom of Assembly

This Douglasville Ga law

will override the 1st amendment

Freedom of assembly, sometimes used interchangeably with the freedom of association, is the individual right to come together and collectively express, promote, pursue and defend common interests. The right to freedom of association is recognized as a human right, a political freedom and a civil liberty.


There’s a new push to make the city of Douglasville safer for teenagers. It was almost a year ago when Bobby Tillman was beaten to death outside a party.

Tillman’s mom, Monique Rivarde, wants parents to notify police before they have a party so police will know where teens are gathering. She approached the city council about passing a resolution in her son’s name.

“We want the kids to enjoy their lives. We just want them to be safe,” said Rivarde.

That’s her hope for kids living in Douglasville and beyond. Her own 18-year-old son was stomped and beaten to death outside a party in Douglasville last November. It began with a fight between other people. Tillman was an innocent bystander.

“There was no meaning to it, so what I want to do is give it meaning. My son did not die in vain. Bobby will save someone’s life,” said Rivarde.

That’s why Rivarde drafted a resolution with her sister, asking the city council to form a teen violence committee, as well as asking parents to voluntarily let police know when they’re hosting a party.

This is not the first move in recent months to thwart the rights of Americans to meet freely and discuss what ever they may desire.  In July the town of Gould Arkansas passed a resolution that banned private meetings in homes where local politics might  be discussed.

And in Quartzite Arizona Freedom of assembly and freedom of speech has been trampled by the local sheriff’s department in an attempt to coverup what appear to be payments from the local treasury going to undisclosed intities.

Quartzsite, AZ — The Mayor is challenged under a recall election beginning next month. Accusations have been made. The city council is persecuting the Mayor for giving the people a voice. The Chief of Police is also involved in the scandal.
Jennifer Jones is given the floor at a city council meeting open to the public. While she is speaking the council realizes she’s about to air their dirty laundry and quickly beckons their henchman to cart her off.

The Mayor steps in and says Jones has been recognized to speak and has not violated the council’s rules, but the council ignores him and has the woman removed even as the Mayor continues to contest. The police officers ignore the Mayor of the city and remove the woman. It’s obvious who those cops work for, and it’s not the people. Source :

So the question you should be asking is will the ‘educated’ population of Douglasville Georgia let this bill become law? Are  they willingly going to hand over their constitutional right to free assembly for a safety issue that really does not exists.  Rights for Safety.

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. ~ Benjamin Franklin
