    I did. If they are claiming something like damage to a fountain, arrest whoever did it, charge and fine them. If they are claiming that the protesting was illegal, **** them.

    Some of the "uninformation" here would be comical, if nto for the fact that you can vote. Folks with nary a clue citing the First Amendment.

    "Right of Assembly": Yes, the government cannot prohibit you from choosing a group with which to assemble. If you want, have 25 folks over to your house, and talk about how lousy the President is. But that does not mean you 25 folks can go into a park at 2 AM and have the same meeting.

    "Freedom of the Press": Sure. Publish a newsletter. But be aware that you cannot say whatever you want. We have libel laws. Redress the government, if you choose. But again not at 2 AM on property that all the public paid for, not just you.

    There are countries where you cannot assemble on your own property and say bad things about the Government, much less print it or post it online. Too many of you that claim to know what you are talking about are still a bit ..... ignorant.

    perhaps and perhaps in many many other cases it is not picked up by the team and is incurred by taxpayers - be they sports fans or not.

    We do not have protest parks in this country not should we. The original Tea Party left a bit of a mess.

    I don't disagree with protestors having to apply for a permit to hold a protest on public property.
    But yet, you would have a problem with a requirement to get a permit for other rights? How to exercise ones religion? Their right to free speech? Or do you think this is the only right that should be regulated?

    There may be a planned infrastructure improvement for that area on the day the protestors want to protest. We wouldn't want to postpone the project just because of the protest. The point is, it gives a municipality the oppurtunity to say, "you can't protest there, because there's a job going on. You're going to have to pick another spot".
    That project may be what people are protesting.

    Along with that, it's not a 1st Amendment right to block streets that people use to go about their daily lives. The rights of the protestors--whoever they may be--don't override the rights of everyone else to conduct their daily lives. Protestors that block streets that people use to get back and forth to work should be arrested for violating the civil rights of others.
    I covered blocking streets more than once.

    Other countries are not the US. And yes you can assemble and protest at 2AM if you so choose. There is no law which puts a curfew on protests. If you think that there is then I invite you to prove it via a link to the relevant law.

    The point of these kinds of protests is to cost money.

    It's whining to suggest that people not waste the taxpayers's money?
