The City of Dallas Has Lost 82 Cases Against the Same Man


Kennedy assassination expert Robert Groden sells books, magazines and videos on the weekends from a folding table on the "grassy knoll" in Dealey Plaza, where President John F. Kennedy was murdered on Nov. 22, 1963. The city has engaged in a decades-long war to make Groden go away, repeatedly ticketing and even jailing him. So far, the City has been up at bat 82 times with the same result each time — “Yurrrr out!” Residents of Dallas continue to scratch their heads, wondering how the city can knowingly engage in years of persecution that's not based on law. By the same token, Groden is unable to sue the City of Dallas, because he's unable to identify the top city official originally responsible for the campaign of persecution against him, which is required by the courts. So, the cycle continues, with the City of Dallas trying to take Groden to court and the courts throwing out the cases. Many citizens say it doesn't sound like a very good use of taxpayers’ money.
