  •  I'm more mad about them restricting the right to (4+ / 0-)

    assemble.

    I don't see how every municipality gets away with it across the country. "You need a permit" or "you're blocking traffic" or "only between the hours of 52 and -23" or "you have to go to that 'designated free speech zone' the size of a thimble over on the edge of town" or whatever.

    The Constitution says we have the right to assemble. No caveats. So I don't care about permits, or traffic, or whatever other excuses they use - an assembly petitioning for the redress of grievances ought never be illegal, and every City official and member of law enforcement who's acted otherwise ought to be brought up on charges themselves of willfully violating people's constitutional rights.
