Absolutely - just as people respect the rights of Muslim clerics who speak in the most vile of terms about Jews, Christians and other "infidels". Usually, the difference is that when Muslim clerics and their followers speak out, most other people simply ignore their ignorance and get on with their lives, however, when someone speaks out in an ignorant way about Muslims, those Muslims like to burn synagogs, churches and other buildings, beat people in the street, kidnap and behead those who spoke the words, etc.
Are you talking about events in the U.S. or the ME?
Yes, we know that, and many of us detest it. That doesn't mean that treading on our rights is a good or desirable thing. Why do you think so many of us complain about the PA? We don't blindly accept that anything our government does is a good thing.
Not blindly no but you bend over and take it like the rest of us.
Only people arrested during OWS protests were those who choose to squat and "occupy" public places for days/weeks/months and police ignored them for as long as possible and then moved in - that's quite a bit different from rounding them up the first minute they did something wrong to thwart their ability to even start to protest.
You are 100% wrong.
I have already posted a link proving that the police arrested hundreds of people (ie truckloads) who had not committed any crime and they did it to thwart their ability to protest
Didn't you just finish telling me that geography doesn't matter - now it does?
So you were referring to the ME? How long do you believe civil unrest has been going on in the ME?
You've given a opening to the question of 'Should we as part of an international community intervene in Syria?'
Was a permit necessary? Is that what the police say?
From what I understand the police arrested him for no disclosed reason and that they would be announcing that reason at a later time. Sounds like they arrested him and will be making up a reason later.
Meanwhile the hazmat team makes off with the "hazardous substances" and the BBQ grill to an undisclosed location for a campfire & some smores.
