Jackie Green: 'I am not a scofflaw.'

Face it, Jackie; all of us who dare to challenge the established disorder are scofflaws.

  1. a person who flouts the law, especially by failing to comply with a law that is difficult to enforce effectively.

Speaking only for myself, I embrace it. In fact, just last week I contested a parking ticket for blocking the street non-sweeper.

The Resistance, Jackie. The Resistance.

Biking advocate: 'I am not a scofflaw', by James Bruggers (C-J)

If there's a bike lane, bicyclists better use it, or they may find themselves in jail.

That's the message a Louisville Metro Police officer gave to bicycling advocate and former mayoral candidate Jackie Green on Friday in the form of a double citation for blocking traffic and running a red light.

Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell said bikes are expected to follow traffic laws and that means respecting stop lights and stop signs. He also said cyclists in Louisville generally must use bike lanes when they are available unless they need to be in another lane to make turns.
