End the arrests of peaceful protesters in Courthouse Park.

This is a call for an immediate end to Fresno County's current practice of arresting nonviolent protesters in Courthouse Park, people who are simply exercising their constitutional right to peaceably assemble and demand redress of grievances. If such assembly is somehow in conflict with minor county ordinances, it is within the power of the Fresno County Board of Supervisors and/or Sheriff Margaret Mims to alter or waive those ordinances in such a way as to allow twenty-four hour peaceable assembly to occur in the vicinity of government offices. It is a huge waste of taxpayers' money to devote so many law-enforcement resources to arresting people who pose no threat to the public. Leave Occupy Fresno in peace and devote county resources instead to fighting real crime.
