Municipal Judge Impeachment
July 1968 a number of young people in Minot were calling for the impeachment of a Minot Municipal Judge. They were upset as they claimed the judge was discriminating against youth with long hair. Apparently they were given the choice of spending time in jail or cutting their hair…. The misdemeanors, such as speeding, were not directly connected to the length of their hair. The few demonstrators were on a local street corner but were claiming the protest would grow to 50 plus people and be help in Roosevelt Park.
