An Amendment to Save Our Officers and Protect the People (BOR.I and BOR.XV)

An Amendment to Save Our Officers and Protect the People (BOR.I and BOR.XV)

BE IT ENACTED BY THE STATE OF FIRESTONE CONGRESS HERE ASSEMBLED THAT:

SECTION 1a. Section I of the Bill of Rights currently states:

“Citizens shall be free of prosecution when expressing an opinion. The impediment of freedom of speech is a crime. Defamation and slander are not illegal unless under special circumstances if set by Congress. The deletion of wall posts without the permission of the poster is forbidden; however a wall post may be deleted freely if it is spam, a scam, or is not official to the State of Firestone. Furthermore, press agencies have the freedom of press and the unalienable right to report news without fear of government interference or censorship: no legislation can impede on the right to publish. Freedom of Speech will only be restricted by the ROBLOX Rules of Conduct, Terms of Service, or Privacy Policy; although no individual may be prosecuted in a court of law for violating standards set by the ROBLOX Rules of Conduct, Terms of Service, or Privacy Policy. The use of external communications or sites, outside of ROBLOX, as evidence in a court of law for instances of slander, defamation and/or harassment is not valid and such evidence are to be dismissed. Law enforcement agencies and their officers are obligated to yield parts of their right to speech upon a citizen’s request to know their name, callsign, and/or badge number, and they must oblige; however they are not obligated to so in a situation deemed simply too intense and pressing for such, with reasoning plausible, and may delay its provision until the intense and pressing situation is ended.”

SECTION 1b. Section I of the Bill of Rights shall be amended to state:

“Citizens shall be free of prosecution when expressing an opinion. The impediment of freedom of speech is a crime.

Further, law enforcement is only obligated to comply with requests for name, callsign, and/or badge that are made in English.

“Law enforcement officers within the State of Firestone shall be required to state a reason to an individual in question as to why he or she is being detained or is being placed under arrest. Citizens within the State of Firestone who are either placed under arrest or are detained shall have the right to question the law enforcement officer as to why he or she is being detained or arrested.

SECTION 2b. Section XV of the Bill of Rights shall be amended to state:

“Law enforcement officers within the State of Firestone shall be required to state a reason to an individual in question in English as to why he or she is being detained or is being placed under arrest. Reasons may be given in another language at the request of the citizen, but law enforcement is not required to oblige with such a request to give the reason in another language as long as the reason is given in English. Citizens within the State of Firestone who are either placed under arrest or are detained shall have the right to question the law enforcement officer as to why he or she is being detained or arrested. Citizens within the State of Firestone shall have the right to prosecute a law enforcement officer if that particular law enforcement officer does not inform the individual in question of why he or she is being arrested or detained.
