Robot Activist Arrested

From: http://www.basementcoder.com/?p=23



Charles Kline (cklin074@kutztown.edu or hngkong@gmail.com), a 24-year old student at Kutztown University, Kutztown, PA was arrested on April 18th on a charge of Disorderly Conduct. Supposedly, he intended to “Alarm or Annoy the public”. Why?

Because at a protest by Life & Liberty Ministries on the KU Campus, who were spouting intolerant hate-speech, he decided to take a humorous stand against them and proceeded to go and make a sign that said, “Equal Rights for Robots”.

He returned to the protest and held it up. Within a few minutes, he was arrested. He wasn’t provocating, he was just standing there, with his humorous sign.
