    Of course you would, and you would likely categorize any dissent or distrust as "hatred" as well. You only prove my point.

    Neither do idiots disrupting the education I PAY for. And not just out of my taxes, but right out of my pocket. I've attended UCD and the protesters then were a huge disruption. That's what the protesters are going for. They were told to disperse, they were creating a disturbance, they got sprayed. And now they get paid and are free to disrupt in the future.

    Why would anyone pay to send their kids to such a place?

    I know cause you totally couldn't have walked around or gone to class some other route, ignoring the whole of it the entire way.

    Pike should face the same criminal charges I would if I sprayed someone in the face with pepper spray. He actions were not those of a police officer performing his duty, but merely an act of sadism meant to inflict suffering on some vulnerable targets. Police officers often are put in situations where determining a reasonable amount of force is difficult, but this case is not one of them.

    We should ammend free speech so that "clownboy" no longer is even mildly disrupted by the practice of it. I say we start referendum on the subject.

    Bull****. They weren't just blocking foot traffic. And the whole deal with protesters is to be loud enough to NOT be ignored. You've obviously never been trying to study when the protests are going on.

    And what were they protesting? Anything that had anything at all to do with the school that others were trying to attend for an education? No of course not. About as useless on campus as a drum circle.

    Not to up on the right of free speech there are ya? Try actually reading the Constitution. Perhaps if you weren't so distracted by the protesters at your school you'd have learned that you have the right to peaceable assembly (this has nothing to do with free speech rights).

    Good thing law & order don't trump freedom of speech in all cases.

    Last I checked the only violent act was the pepper spraying of protestors. It has everything to do with free speech. How on earth is restricting when and where you can protest not a limitation on speech? Nobody pays attention to a protest in your own backyard.
