Overturn the Minnesota False Reporting Bill sign now

During its 2005 session, the Minnesota legislature passed a law making it a crime to falsely report police brutality. If found guilty, a person could be jailed for up to a year. This law is so vaguely worded that even journalists who report on incidents that cant later be proven could be subject to prosecution. The law does not specify who would decide if a police brutality report is falsewill it be the same police department the person is complaining about? This law is clearly meant to frighten people away from filing complaints against abusive police officers.

This new law is a violation of the U.S. Constitutions First Amendment right of free speech and right to criticize a branch of the government and demand redress of grievances. We, the undersigned, demand this law be overturned immediately and any prosecutions under this law be dropped.
