hmm...to me this looks like a clear violation of Amendment I of the Bill of Rights.

Although not described as a democracy by the founding fathers, the United States founders also shared a determination to root the American experiment in the principle of natural freedom and equality
I'm guessing you are referring to the police actions at OWS; the First Amendment states that the guvment can't make a law that prohibits people from peaceably assembling. I suppose they relied on common sense to define 'peaceably' on a case by case basis. Browsing Youtube there are clear cases of cops going way over the line but the also of the protesters getting out of hand too; it's rather complicated. The fact that so many protesters can't even begin to articulate why they are there is funny on a visceral level, and unfortunate for the movement- which has merit in demanding some oversight regarding the coddling of big money and plight of the working man.

You are forcing me to be the voice of reason. And that's not a good look for me!

They are invoking article 240.35 of the NY penal code (section 4, although the whole thing is an interesting read) . This thing is from waaay back (1839) a clear disposition on the anti-rent war of NY.


I think I just wolli'ed this thread :S
