Lockland Ten Commandments

The story appears to be a bit light on details. Apparently the guy claims to have been harassed by the police and in retaliation has files a lawsuit to remove the display.

LOCKLAND - A Lockland resident has filed a lawsuit against the village, claiming a display of the Ten Commandments outside town hall is unconstitutional.

Christopher Knecht wants the sign removed and a court order to prevent any future displays of "religious fables and myths."

actually the ten commandments are a separate claim. the retaliation claim is not related to the religious claim

Thanks, anon. The Cincinnati.com article seems to imply that the two are related.

His concern over the display of the Ten Commandments was sparked by a seemingly unrelated event early this summer.

Sorry, here's the full quote.

His concern over the display of the Ten Commandments was sparked by a seemingly unrelated event early this summer.

Knecht claims he was bitten and attacked several times by a neighbor’s Rottweiler and officers not only failed to cite the neighbor but instead began retaliating against Knecht for his frequent complaints.

The display of the Ten Commandments, he claims, enables the Police Department – with village support – to pick and choose who they criminalize.


Like I said, the original article is short on details.
