What a pathetic decision.multiple times as the movement grew.“A reasonable officer in the noisy environment defendants occupied would have known that a single bull horn could not reasonably communicate a message to 700 demonstrators,” wrote Jed S Rakoff of the federal district court in Manhattan, in his decision. Rakoff added that protesters “might infer permission to enter the vehicular roadway from the fact that officers, without offering further warnings, proceeded ahead of and alongside plaintiffs onto that roadway”.
It was the protestors responsibility to listen to the bullhorn. Singular or not.
Nor do Officers have to repeatedly give warnings. The protestors should have listened the first time.
I hope this is appealed, any class action stayed until, and overturned.

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Can the judge show me where the 1st amendment says you have the right to block rightful commerce by preventing individuals from getting to work on time?
