You wouldn't hear it from me, though I am pro-life. I don't agree with law-breaking and infringing on the rights of others to make a point.
Like I said, its OK to abuse people and infringe upon their rights so long as you disagree with their political position, or any other position for that matter.

How is peacefully assembling to protest something (anything) infringing upon anyone's rights?


Its not. But I digress, I can't force you or anyone else to have any sort of common sense.

Last I checked, it is still a right provided for under the U. S. constitution, just as is the right to bear arms.

Blocking streets and sidewalks. Shutting down intersections. Shutting down sea ports like the Port of Oakland. Forcing small businesses out of business by preventing customers from patronizing them. Beating drums all night when people trying to sleep. Terrorizing little kids as they try to go to school. The crime, the disease that can be spread at and from the illegal camps, need I go on?

The Constitution in no way supports this.

Can we pepper spray them, too? Please?
wow, that is tempting but it would be so wrong, wouldn't it???

Pepper spraying non violent protesters who are practicing their RIGHT to civilly disobey in a non violent manner was and is a gross abuse of power, and NOT something that should be tolerated in a "free" country.

Those that say since they were breaking the law they deserved it, the next time your speedometer goes over the posted limit, or your jaywalk, or anything else, you should be pepper sprayed, or beaten, or possibly even worse. Since after all you DID break the rule of law so you SHOULD suffer the consequences whatever they may be or whatever the law enforcement officer feels like those consequences should be.
Now for some rational thought. If you broke a speeding law, and police attempted to stop you, and you refused to stop, you might get the vehicular equivilant of peper spray, and properly so.

And remember, the first occupy terrorist act was in 1988, Occupy Chicago, organized by The Potemkin Village Idiot B. Obama, currently residing, at taxpayer expense, in the White House.

People here are adults they can google or youtube videos of peaceful demonstrators getting arrested.
Of course they can - although, it's odd that you could go get the videos you specifically reference much faster than it would take us to sift through the videos and guess at which ones you're referring to... Seems odd you don't just post the videos.

This all goes back to afirmative action - hiring practices that are common now when it comes to gathering up law enforcement to enforce law and keep order and the piece. There was a time when only bright and strong men and women were welcomed into the profession of law enforcement..Now you have some twit that should be working in a burger joint..who weighs 140 pounds - is five foot 6 inches tall and carries a gun...and who feels "threatened" - If a law enforcer feels threatened by a bunch of kid sitting on the ground then maybe that police officer is not fit for the job...

It just looks like affirmative action hiring policy has come back to bight the liberal hand that created it.

And these students were sitting on the sidewalk at their campus quad. Guess what, people could go around them, the police officer climbed over them several times. The college wasn't in danger of going out of business. There was NO reason to pepper spray them.
