CTA riders exercise free speech on "Free Palestine" sticker

I do love our constitutional right to freedom of speech. And it’s duly noted here with varying views depicted on this sticker pasted on this CTA Howard Red Line sign.

  • To put it neutrally, I don't think that the constitutional right of free speech encompasses defacing CTA property. Basically, get out the power washer.

  • In reply to jack:

    It's also theft, which in this case is a federal crime. Those address labels from the post office are only supposed to used on US Mail.

  • In reply to jack:

    That sticker looks more like vandalism to me.

  • Well, you are correct Jack. But once it's done, it is done.

  • In reply to KevinO’Neil:

    Which is why I said to get out the power washer.

  • I guess that means it's cool for me to start scratching messages into train doors, too. After all, I'm just exercising my right to free speech, and once it's done, it's done, right?

    Vandalism is vandalism, regardless of the perceived socioeconomic status of the vandal.

    Darkwing, I agree with you 100%! There are a lot things I'd like to say, but I don't write my opinions on other people's property. Property that is maintained with the taxpayers' money, no less.
