I immediately found the email address to the Chief of Police for UT Austin, david.carter@austin.utexas.edu

This was what I wrote:

David,

I am offended by the actions and speech of the officers under your authority; and I am encouraging others who have been offended by them to press charges.

-Kyle


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I received a reply in about 20 minutes:

Kyle, the ticket was clearly a violation of first amendment rights and was voided as soon as it came to our attention. The person receiving the ticket was immediately notified of that as well.

The training of the two officers who have been police officers for little more than one month is under review and scrutiny, as well as their oversight.

"Brother Jed" and his ministry have been regularly preaching at that spot for a decade or more. The department receives complaints of people being offended virtually each time he visits and we advise people that it is constitutionally protected speech and therefore it is not illegal to offend another. So this instance clearly is a concern for us and not within our history.

Thankfully the officers did not make a custody arrest which would have been even more egregious.

Corrective action is underway, no intentional malfeasance has been detected so far.

Again the department continues to review and to insure that we collectively uphold the oath we swore to defend the U.S. Constitution; and it's supremacy over all other laws, such as "Disorderly Conduct." It also pains me that we, as your public servants, did not do that in this instance.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Popcorn is now being served.
