So its Going to be Like That?
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances" There it is, the first amendment to the Constitution. Notice how clear cut the wording how straight to the point? And it can not be twisted into something it is not. And that leads me to our right to peaceful protests anywhere at any time. Without limitations and without the threat of arrest and or severe physical abuse by over handed cops. Not including the Recent abuses at the G20 in Toronto, as it is outside the jurisdiction of the constitution. But right here at home we have the right to assemble anywhere at anytime for any purpose, so long as it remains peaceful, but each year the aggressive tactics by law enforcement to abridge and violate our right to do, with Violence first and foremost. Just going back to the Political conventions of 2000 and see how the police violence on legal peaceful protesters has escalated every year since then. How many times do have to see someone get yanked out of a crowd by some thug with a badge that can't keep him temper in check? And have to endure the propaganda. But in 2008 this situation reached the boiling point In Minneapolis/St Paul. Not only did the police illegally arrest hundreds of protesters prior to the Convention, the first thing they did was arrest as many reporters as possible and take as many cameras off the streets. Journalist AMy Goodman Arrested at 2008 republican convention. My question is simple, how could so many openly obvious civil rights violations be committed in public view and no one, not one person paid the price. And that can not happen in America. Those idiots donning the riot gear, makes the choice to follow illegal orders, or not. If they do they have to be accountable. If not what happens in 2012 they use their horses and someone gets trampled to death? And how far can we go to protect ourselves from openly illegal arrests? I don't care if your liberal or conservative, you need to watch this documentary, this is the path we're treading on now, and it can only escalate from here.
