Back of the Federal Courthouse Fort Lauderdale Florida where I hand out FIJA brochures

The weather at the Federal Courthouse at: 299 East Broward Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida was hot and humid. Where I stand at the back of the courthouse, (the parking garage) there were more than the average people passing by.

I took an early lunch at 11AM and headed into town to get ready for the 12PM rush.  After lunch I stuck around the city center handing information to people that were on their lunch breaks.

At around 12:30PM I headed over to Broward College, to stand on the sidewalk outside and handed out information to the college students.

I truly believe that if we are going to make a difference, it must be done through educating high school and college students.

On the sidewalk outside the college I was approached by a male employee  from the college. He told me that I can not hand out brochures on the sidewalk outside the college. I explained to him that we have had this conversation before with the security guard and a police officer (check out my previous post on this website).  The gentleman went inside, and not long after the female security guard who I had a previous conversation with came out to me.   Again she told me that I could not hand out information, I reminded her of our previous conversation with the lieutenant.  She said that she was going to call the police and off she went inside.  It seems to me that some people would love to squelch freedom of speech.  I carried on handing out the brochures on the public sidewalk.

After about 30 minutes or so no sign of the police so, I headed over to the county courthouse, here I continued to hand out brochures for the rest of the day.

In total today I handed out 430 brochures, it was a great day to be educated on Jury Veto Power!
