Not sure how this guy isn’t using his right to free speech here. This is still the United States. The 1st Amendment isn’t suspended just because it’s inconvenient for the police. This is just bullying from law enforcement.

An Ohio man was sentenced to 240 days in jail Thursday for First Amendment-related activities, including attempting to video record police in public and warning drivers of an upcoming DUI checkpoint by holding up a sign.
