    Of course there is a restriction on what government can restrict.
    In the case of protesting, the government is allowed to restrict some forms of protest based upon the time, place, and manner. These restrictions have to be REASONABLE.
    They just don't have to go to a judge before hand.... (cities do, however, consult with their city employed attorneys to go over previous case law and make sure that they aren't doing anything that has already been deemed unreasonable in previous court rulings).

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Hell, half of them go get hotels overnight and leave their tents up to keep up appearances.
    I noticed that! Same over here in the Triangle.

    Freedom doesn't give anyone the right to obstruct or impede others. Shame so many assholes can't figure that out. Dont like the cages and protest zones? Point the finger of blame where it belongs.

    Freedom does not mean freedom from responsibility for ones actions. While I AGREE with Ikari that the methods used are shameful, who really is to blame for this?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    North Carolina State Police are not to be trifled with, they will take your head off and have bar-b-que.

    North Carolina does not have state police.

    North Carolina has three state run law enforcement agencies.

    The North Carolina Highway Patrol. (Traffic Law)
    The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigations (SBI) (Investigating Organized Crime / Corrupt Local Law Enforcement)
    The North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement Division. (ABC Laws)

    The cages are a good place to assemble. Once everyone gets there, everyone could decide to leave at the same time. There are no locks. Just use the sidewalk.

    Yet rights override convenience. The finger of blame is pointed at government for its restrictions and force against free exercise of rights.

    The government which uses its force against the free exercise of rights. Just because people can be jerks and asses when exercising their rights doesn't mean that we go after the rights. It's a consequence of freedom, of course there are going to be jerks and asses; you have to deal with it if you wish to remain free. This "well they annoyed me, so they belong in a cage" non-sense that some of y'all are coming up with is horribly destructive to the overall health and longevity of the Republic.
