Nashville Judge Tells Cops “You Have NO Lawful Basis To Arrest Occupy Protesters!”

Occupy Nashville

Tennessee Highway Patrol Troopers arrested dozens of demonstrators in the Occupy Nashville
movement peacefully just after 3 a.m. Friday and sealed off Legislative Plaza, but a judge ruled after 5 a.m. that they will be released after he ruled that demonstrators did not have enough time to comply to new permit rules.  Yesterday, Tennessee changed the rules on demonstrations on the land around Legislative Plaza and the Capitol. The new Capitol rules prohibit camping and require demonstrations to have a permit, get insurance and operate from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
