Court Gets Crippled: An Update
First, I just want to say thank you for all the support so many of you have shown to me and Forest over this ridiculous arrest. With that being said, I have some updates for you..
Today was Forest’s arraignment. As much as we were hoping for a dismissal, Forest plead “not guilty” and we are set to go back to court on June 20th. Until today, we weren’t sure the specifics of the charges. During the arrest, all we knew was that is was “disorderly conduct” and had the officer mention that the reason we were made to leave was because we were being “vulgar”. As it turns out, “crippled” isn’t actually a vulgar word but rather (according to what the judge said via the arrest report) “grossly abusive language”.
So this begs the question: Who was the language abusive towards? The crippled girl using the word in reference to herself? The people that laughing at the crippled girl’s jokes? Or the one lady with a personal vendetta against Forest? Whatever the case may be, I will not let this issue rest. I will not sit back and allow anyone trample over my RIGHT to show and tell the world that I am PROUD to be CRIPPLED!
Before I bring this post to a close, I want to ask: What are your thoughts on this whole ordeal? What should our plan of action be? We welcome your thoughts, opinions, and criticisms. Unlike Cincinnati PD, we don’t censor folks.
Also, here is a video of the footage we got that night. The lady at the beginning flipped her shit the moment she saw Forest, before he even opened his purtty mouth.
