Submission + - Online Parody Cartoon Targeted for Prosecution (kirotv.com)

SeattleGameboy writes: It seems that Renton (suburb of Seattle) police needs remedial course on US Constitution.

"The Renton City Prosecutor wants to send a cartoonist to jail for mocking the police department in a series of animated Internet videos. The "South-Park"-style animations parody everything from officers having sex on duty to certain personnel getting promoted without necessary qualifications. While the city wants to criminalize the cartoons, First Amendment rights advocates say the move is an "extreme abuse of power."
