Harassment Law & Legal DefinitionHarassment is governed by state laws, which vary by state, but is generally defined as a course of conduct which annoys, threatens, intimidates, alarms, or puts a person in fear of their safety. Harassment is unwanted, unwelcomed and uninvited behavior that demeans, threatens or offends the victim and results in a hostile environment for the victim. Harassing behavior may include, but is not limited to, epithets, derogatory comments or slurs and lewd propositions, assault, impeding or blocking movement, offensive touching or any physical interference with normal work or movement, and visual insults, such as derogatory posters or cartoons.
The protests against clinics where abortions are performed, and those who intend to use them, clearly qualifies.
A friend of mine volunteers as an escort like this. These protesters are not like the sweet little nun hand picked for this legal challenge.
One of you will end up here next!
I suppose if an OWS protester(s) can crash on the porch of a business then buffer zones are moot.
