Hate Crimes, Cyber Bullying and Beyond

September 25th, 2016

WEST CHESTER, PA — Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus, of Living In Chester County, PA and Williams Watts, of the Bob Marley family, have been accused of hate crimes.

On Sunday the 25th of September, 2016, Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus published written defamation on Facebook and other media. Written defamation is known as libel and is a crime along with cyber bullying. (Those comments will not be republished here.)

Previously, Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus and Williams Watts were involved in incidents of hate speech and terroristic threats.

Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus “You need to grow up… and I second Anthony! Get a God Damn job!”
Stay tuned. More to come.
William Watts What’s disability?? If someone was taping my 14 yr old they would get the camera jammed up there ass! People don’t hit other people because there afraid of charges. All you have to do is write a check and your good. I’ve knocked out people’s teeth and just paid for the dentist bill. People like to antagonize and then video the actions of others. Doing that your baiting someone. A neighbor of mine baited me, he put trash in my driveway and went back inside his home. He then taped me throwing the trash on his yard, he came out argued and got his ass whooped. When we went to court I didn’t pay anything because he baited me. Be careful if you run into a guy that can afford to write a check you may get lumped up!!

 

Daniel Brouse nobody was filming his kid

 

Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus Oh he’s saying that it’s a hate crime bc he has a disability and is less fortunate than others. No one knows his fortune unless he tells people about it. And he hasn’t walked in the shoes who have sacrificed their own investments and put that into a business. He doesn’t know how much work it is to run an establishment. To say he’s less fortunate when he doesn’t know what other people’s fortune looks like or roads they’ve walked or sacrifices they’ve had to make is hypocritical. He’s playing the victim card and playing it well.

 

Daniel Brouse I never said I was less fortunate… I said the two musicians that were assaulted by the cops were less fortunate. However, your comments are bordering on hate crimes.

 

William Watts What Disabilty?? I don’t think a guy would flip like that and say your Filming his kid if someone wasn’t. To run a business isn’t easy it becomes your life I know. I live my life that if I’m affecting someone I would just move on. Rather than sit and bait them on hoping for a lawsuit.

 

Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus Daniel Brouse well then I guess you should report me then.

 

Daniel Brouse as you wish

 

Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus Daniel Brouse great! Good luck with that! πŸ˜‰

 

William Watts Maybe she hates you? She’s allowed ya know, but to run to cops and sign complaints is a bitch move. She hardly is doing a “hate crime” I would think if I was on a jury.
Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus Daniel Brouse you never said anything about two people being assaulted by cops.
Daniel Brouse i was not going to report her to the police, yet. i am going to report it for the public.
Daniel Brouse Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus yes. i most certainly have made many posts about the criminal activities of the police and hate crimes against citizens. i started reporting on it April 19.
Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus Daniel Brouse report on what exactly? Giving you some free advice on how you can volunteer to give back to our community? Report on the fact that I think you’re playing the victim here bc at no point have I heard anyone in your videos elude to hate criSee More
Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus Daniel Brouse my feelings on this are already public my friend! It’s on here and on your other page.
Angela Hilliard-Myrtetus 14,000 people like my page. I too, can voice my opinions on your actions publicly.

West Chester Street Performance Ordincance

September 22nd, 2016

by Daniel Brouse

WEST CHESTER, PA — A second public hearing for a proposed ordinance to regulate street performers was held on September 21 at Borough Hall. Due to the time length of the meeting, a third public hearing has been scheduled for October 18 at 6PM.

The ordinance would regulate “the following activities: acting, singing, playing musical instruments, pantomime, juggling, magic, dancing, reading aloud, puppetry and reciting.”

Borough council members spent an hour-and-a-half suggesting changes. One of the most significant changes was to the Purpose of the ordinance, changing “the Borough Council therefore seeks to encourage such performances” to “the Borough Council therefore seeks to regulate such performances”. Council members Michael Galey and William J. Scott brought up concerns over unnecessary regulations, redundant regulations and over-reaching regulations. Quite a bit of discussion revolved around applying the regulation to private property. Surprisingly, there was no discussion about how this law would be applied to minors. At the previous hearing, a resident was voiced concerns, “If I’m playing a guitar and children start to dance, are they in violation.”

Eventually, comments by the public were heard. The overwhelming majority of the comments were against any attempts to regulate free speech.

The West Chester Business Improvement District (BID) executive director, Malcolm Johnstone stated his support for the ordinance. Only one business came out in favor of the ordinance. The owner of Penn’s Table Restaurant complained that the artists blocked the public right-of-way.

Comments against the ordinance came from a wide array of artists, performers and fans. Tom Wagner, Esquire, stated his opposition to the ordinance based on The First Amendment. Virginia Schawacker, director of Shaw Strings, voiced her concerns about regulating musical performances especially when on private property. Tony Webb has an architectural firm on Church Street and talked about his support for the music. A variety of musicians and students from West Chester University spoke out against the ordinance. Brad Rau, who holds a masters degree in classical guitar and teaches in West Chester, created a petition in support of the arts. The petition with hundreds of unsolicited signatures of citizens against regulating the arts was presented.

The discussion will continue in October.

West Chester Attempts to Regulate Free Speech

September 22nd, 2016

WEST CHESTER, PA — At the second public hearing for a proposed ordinance to regulate street performers, the problems with creating a law that violates the Constitution of the United States became increasingly apparent. In fact, the ordinance is so problematic that a third public hearing has been scheduled for October 18 at 6PM.

At the request of the Borough, Police Chief Scott Bohn tried to explain why the ordinance would help the police. Part of the reason they are trying to pass this ordinance is because Mayor Comitta and Police Chief Bohn are already embroiled in allegations of hate crimes and civil rights violations against street performers. Two musicians have been assaulted by West Chester Police officers and wrongfully arrested. Dozens of citizens have been wrongfully cited. The proposed ordinance would attempt to legalize criminal activities committed by the Borough Police.

Borough council members held a slugfest for the next two hours suggesting a multitude of changes. Ironically, one of the most significant changes was to the Purpose of the ordinance, changing “the Borough Council therefore seeks to encourage such performances” to “the Borough Council therefore seeks to regulate such performances”.

Eventually, comments by the public were heard. The overwhelming majority of the comments were against any attempts to regulate free speech; however, a couple of music haters did voice their opinion.

The West Chester Business Improvement District (BID) executive director, Malcolm Johnstone has been accused of committing hate crimes and civil rights violations; nevertheless, he stated his support for the ordinance.

Only one business came out in favor of the ordinance. The owner of Penn’s Table Restaurant complained that the artists blocked the public right-of-way. The audience found this quite hypocritical since Penn’s Table Restaurant’s customer seating on the sidewalk impedes the public thoroughfare on a daily basis.

Comments against the ordinance came from a wide array of artists, performers and fans. A songwriter and arranger (who has written hundreds of songs at the corner of Gay and Church Streets) voiced his concern about police mistakenly accusing him of performing. He then presented pages of unsolicited signatures from individuals opposed to regulating the arts.

After the meeting the resident stated, “If you want to see me perform, I get on stage and you have to buy a ticket. ‘Street Performance’ is an oxymoron.”
