    This is not always true. When I was in college many years ago, three of my friends and I went to a bar that we knew would not accept black patrons. One of us was black. We were told that we could stay, but the one could not. We protested that this was wrong in front of the other patrons at the bar. After about 2 or 3 minutes, we left. This cost the taxpayer nothing.

    That's ****ing nonsense! Meetings and protests are held all the time which cost the taxpayer nothing. Where proper permits are obtained, fees are paid, and insurance bonds posted.

    Do you folks just make this crap up ?

    Post so much as one police officer in the vicinity to keep the peace, and it costs the taxpayer something.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Wow..talk about a huge protest eh? Lets try and keep this in terms of the normal size of a protest that actually will grab the media's attention. You know...like the size of MLK's protests? Teaparty protests? OWS protests?

    Can you show me these laws? And if they do exist doesnt that go against the first amendment?
    YOu know what ? I can be liberal and give you a fish paid for by someone else. Or I can be Conservative and show you how to fish.

    Make Google your friend. Pick a local municipality, and type in "curfew statutes". Then try "public usage".

    Do you think that all these hundreds of years since our founding, that you have stumbled onto a flaw in the law where curfews are Unconstitutional ? Etc. ? Do you not comprehend that other taxpayers have rights as well ? Already discussed in this thread, btw.

    I can't speak for other jurisdictions, but any time my county's Sheriff's department posts officers or deploys a task force to look for drunk drivers on the weekends, they never take it from the regular compliment -- they always add to it, because otherwise the guys left on patrol are at risk and the department as a whole is less effecient.

    My guess is that it's the same in any department involving more than a couple of guys.

    1.)This has ZERO relevance to this conversation.
    2.)Cool conservative republican talking point
    3.)I'm not a liberal
    4.)What the ****?

    Make Google your friend. Pick a local municipality, and type in "curfew statutes". Then try "public usage".
    So you cant?

    Do you think that all these hundreds of years since our founding, that you have stumbled onto a flaw in the law where curfews are Unconstitutional ? Etc. ? Do you not comprehend that other taxpayers have rights as well ? Already discussed in this thread, btw.
    So you are saying that curfews, sizes of protest are laws that dont go against this here amendment: "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."

    How is someone having a protest infringing upon your rights? I saw no one at any of the OWS protests stopping people from entering the parks that they occupied. If you didn't go because you didn't want to associate yourself with the OWS or didn't want to have to deal with the crowds that is your choice. No one stopped you or anyone else from entering the parks.
