Houston perverts its own laws to attack democracy supporters

Apparently seven protestors face 2 years jail for tying themselves to a piece of PVC pipe.

The strange interpretation of the law is based on the pipe being adjudged (i.e. this was considered opinion of an allegedly intelligent and impartial person dedicated to upholding justice, through a proper interpretation of the law and its intended purpose) by an actual living intelligence as “a Criminal Instrument”.

I bet the legislators never envisaged that interpretation / perversion of their words.

Shoes enable you to walk along the streets, where the protests take place.

Can they be considered as criminal instruments?

If you hold onto a lamp post, to prevent being dragged off, is that a use of a criminal instrument?

This is a catch-all Law and needs to be rescinded.
