Deborah Davis, the woman charged with a crime for refusing to show her identification to an officer while riding on a public bus in Denver, has a court appearance on Friday. There will be a rally at the federal courthouse to show support for her. WHAT: Rally for Deb Davis’ stand for the Freedom to Travel WHEN: Friday, the 9th of December at 8:30 AM WHERE: The steps of the Alfred A. Arraj U.S. Courthouse, 901 19th Street in Denver. Information about her legal case is available here. Her side of the story is presented here. The statement of the Homeland Security Officer is here (pdf). My view: Allowing police to demand papers indiscriminately will not make us safer, only less free.
