    “I don’t believe there is actually objectivity when you’re paid by someone to do extra work," Haberfeld said.

    I was protesting at a Hubbard Birthday Event a couple years ago in Clearwater.....

    I had a poster that was making fun of COB's hair....with a big Pompadour Hairdo.....

    One Clearwater Policeman was yelling at me that I was making fun of "his hair..." and that he was going to arrest me for this!

    But, I was too slow to get it on bad.

    During another protest....I was holding a sign up...perhaps the New Years Event a couple years ago.

    I was a bit down from the crosswalk....down from Ft.Harrison St. Attendees were all dressed formal and crossing the street there....

    There were 2 Clearwater Police cruisers across the street...and a few police standing there.

    Soon I was surrounded by at least a half dozen Cult guys with umbrellas. They began to crowd in on me. Eventually one of their umbrellas got caught on the top of my protest sign. I jerked my sign down a bit....trying to untangle my sign from the umbrellas. That ripped the umbrella caught on my its frame.

    At that time, 2 Clearwater Cops came over and one said to me: "you have 2 choices, you can walk away now, or you can be arrested."

    So, I walked away.
