Humanist persecuted in Florida

An unbelievable situation in Florida where a conservative christian employed as county sherriff used his police powers to arrest a local atheist activist on trumped-up charges and search her home. He arrested her twice on the most absurd charges. It was pure harassment based on his religious biases. The prosecutors knew it was all nonsense and agreed to drop the entire case and remove the arrests from her record. The good news is that the atheist/humanist is fighting back. She herself is a retired lawyer and knows her rights. She is making a federal case out of this situation. It`s frightening to think a person like that sherriff is a law enforcement officer.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation has publicized this situation. FFRF.org.
