ORDINANCE NO. 884

AN ORDINANCE OF THE COUNTY OF RIVERSIDE
REGULATED TARGETED RESIDENTIAL PICKETING

The Board of Supervisors of the County of Riverside ordains as follows:

Section 1. FINDINGS. The Board of Supervisors of the County of Riverside finds that:

a. The preservation and protection of the right to privacy in the home and the enjoyment of tranquility, well-being and sense of security in the home are in the public interest and are uniquely and critically important to the public health, safety and welfare.

b. Picketing activity that is targeted at a particular residence or household whose occupants do not welcome such activity may harass and intimidate such occupants, is inherently and unreasonably offensive to and intrusive upon the right to privacy in the home, disturbs the sense of peace and tranquility traditionally enjoyed by individuals in their homes, and may cause the occupants of such home to experience great emotional distress.

c. Such unwelcome and targeted picketing activity creates a "captive audience" situation because the occupants of a residence of household cannot readily move to another residence or household in order to avoid the unwelcome picketing activity being directed at them.

d. This "captive audience" situation and the protection of the right to privacy in the home require enactment of a reasonable time, place and manner restriction upon such unwelcome picketing activity that is targeted at a particular residence or household.

Section 2. PURPOSE. The purpose of this ordinance is to reasonably regulate the time, place and manner of picketing activity targeted at a particular residential dwelling in order to preserve the right of privacy and the feeling of peace and tranquility which should be enjoyed in residential dwellings and the right of residents not to be captive audiences to unwanted speech.

ORD. #999 -- ELIMINATION OF SCIENTOLOGY HARASSMENT

It's hypocritical, that scientology complained about picketing harassment -- when every day they harass ex-scientologists and those who speak out against the church.
--------------------------------------
Following is a sick spoof of Ord #884 into one that outlaws scientology's harassment.
