Local story: a restaurant owner in Fall River is annoyed that the city wouldn’t let him turn his place of business into a strip club. To spite the city, he’s erected a display of toilets at the industrial park as a greeting to people coming to Fall River to do business.
He seems to be a lover of first amendment rights, but not so much when those rights apply to others.
He came under criticism at the local radio station. He was given air time, but the subject continued to come up in discussion days after he appeared on Keri Rodrigues’ late afternoon show.
In response to Friday’s show, he turned up at the station demanding a tape of the show. When he was told he didn’t have a right to demand any tapes and was asked to leave, he stuck around until the police had to be called to escort him out. He made threats about returning if they discussed him on the air again.
By the way, the man is running in today’s election for a seat on the Governor’s Council. Happy election day!Posted by James at November 7, 2006 8:53 AM
