Charges not filed in William Ayers event arrest

Last week, Mark Thompson, owner of Slot & Wing Hobbies, was arrested for disrupting a William Ayers speech at Allen Hall.  Champaign County State’s Attorney Julia Rietz decided not to press charges: “I am simply not interested in giving Mr. Thompson or Mr. Ayers any more of a platform than they’ve already had here.”

Full story over at the News Gazette.

Lesson learned? It looks like open season on disrupting speech we don’t like in Champaign County.
