    It's also funny that she kept calling the display "profane" and that it was "swearing to her."
    Yeah, that's what I took from it. She obviously doesn't want the result of an abortion on display.

    I can't find much of anything about her, but I'd be curious as to her opinion on not allowing the press to see soldier's coffins returning from war. Being an adjuct instructor of "media study," there's no question she had one.

    Unless they are actually threatening, then it's not assault. If they're saying "I'm going to ****ing kill you and rape your corpse" OK. But if they're saying "you ignorant little ****, you have no clue what you're ****ing talking about, just spewing **** all over the place without one god damned ounce of ****ing thought, you dumb ass, retarded twat!" then no.

    Well maybe in Canada, eh? Americans are a bit more demonstrative.

    Government force is government force. And 50 bucks in your hood may be 250 buck and 40 hours community service elsewhere.

    There are limits to what and how the government can police.

    Depends if that person is in your face or you feel threatened. It's quite possible the professor will be let go without charges being laid, but that doesn't mean the police acted improperly by arresting her and removing her from the scene. In addition, as I understand it, she was profane with and disrespectful to the police when confronted by them - that alone can cause you to be arrested.

    We have our fair share of profane lunatics, many of them with tenure in our finest universities, and they demonstrate often. It is common, however, in the US, is it not, that those protesting both sides of the abortion issue are required to separate themselves when asked by police and if they don't they may be arrested. Causing a public confrontation is not a protest/demonstration alone, if police feel tempers are escalating to where violence may result. I don't know all the details, but I'm not prepared to accept that the professor wasn't properly arrested.

    Who the **** cares if you're profane and disrespectful with the police, that in no way shape or form should cause you to get arrested. It's bull**** no matter what way you slice it.

    Try it sometime and let me know how it goes, but don't call me from jail because I won't be posting bail.

    I am not saying they can't, I'm saying it's bull**** that they do. It's called reading, for christ's sake.
