Court Rules Zombies Have Right To Free Speech

An appeals court in Minneapolis, Minnesota overturned a lower court in finding that a group of zombies had been wrongfully detained during a protest. The 2006 protest against consumerism was held in a shopping mall. Oh, yeah, these were not real zombies; The protesters were just dressed as zombies. I didn't mean to alarm anyone.

"An objectively reasonable person would not think probable cause exists under the Minnesota disorderly conduct statue to arrest a group of peaceful people for engaging in an artistic protest by playing music, broadcasting statements (and) dressing as zombies," the appeals court ruled.

Thanks to Milan for the heads-up.
