Carlson said the rules violate officers’ due process and have a preference for “one set of perspectives over another,” also known as “viewpoint discrimination,” a violation of the First Amendment. The rule could be used to attack people with sincerely held, religious-based opinions that are critical of “prevailing culture practices” with regard to marriage and sexuality, she said.
The POST Board has proposed amending the rule to create an exception based on membership in a religious organization, but Carlson said for many devout, religious observers, “Faith is not confined to membership in organized religion” but is “lived out daily and transcends beyond membership within the walls of a temple, church, mosque or synagogue.”
She questioned whether a private statement made by an officer at any age could be used as the basis for termination or denial of a job — such as a social media post supporting “female athletes desiring to play on female-only sports teams.” Or contributions to a religious group that opposes gay marriage or “expresses concern about harmful gender transition efforts towards minors.” Or membership in a Bible study that is opposed to gay marriage.
A year and a half before he was arrested in the Colorado Springs gay nightclub shooting that left five people dead, Anderson Lee Aldrich allegedly threatened his mother with a homemade bomb, forcing neighbors in surrounding homes to evacuate while the bomb squad and crisis negotiators talked him into surrendering.
Yet despite that scare, there's no public record that prosecutors moved forward with felony kidnapping and menacing charges against Aldrich, or that police or relatives tried to trigger Colorado's "red flag" law that would have allowed authorities to seize the weapons and ammo the man's mother says he had with him.
Obviously, America needs to replace its buildings with something sturdier, like bunkers. And bury all power and phone lines so they don't get in the way of bullets.
