    I wonder if the families of the deceased could sue the protestors for emotional damage or trauma? That may put an end to it.

    Nah. If they have the right to protest, which they do, all bets off. Thank goodness we can't contort the constitution that way.

    Your rights only extend as far as you are not infringing on those of others.

    There are seldom limits to free speech but I think protesting a funeral should be one of them.

    Or in the least, my right to shoot people who are protesting a funeral of my loved one.

    That's not quite true, Timorg. Not quite. Think about it. The same could be said of both sides if that were the case.

    You're infringing on my right to a quiet funeral.
    No! You're infringing on my right to protest the war.

    I think that should be so, too. I also think that building an offensive monument, next to hallowed ground should be limited, as well. i.e. the Ground Zero Mosque.

    Then this country has lost all sense of civility. The logical place to protest the war would be in Washington or at the steps of the government, these people are simply harassing.

    Hmmm... I see now why the courts have to be uniform in their upholding of the first amendment... because people like you don't know what should be reasonably stopped.

    Come on, Orion. You've always known why the courts have to be uniform in their upholding of the First Amendment.

    To me this is like protesting corporate greed at an unemployment office. This is harassment, not protest.
