    It is a misdemeanor that can be ticketed in most states.

    Correct, but the charges have to be filed and that's the tricky part, do officers want to risk a loud situation becoming a riot by making a hasty move, or does the speaker want to elevate things by bringing up the complaint and thus engaging the officers to file, etc. It's kind of like the bar blocks in my city, there are literally hundreds of disturbing the peace possibilities on any given Saturday night, but the crowds are loud, and alcohol is involved, all it would take is for some idiots to take exception to an officer starting the process to make the crowd unruly, so officers usually wait until someone is an immenent threat or when someone needs to be removed before any arrests are made.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    MISDEMEANOR - A minor crime (as opposed to a felony). A crime - less serious than a felony - which is punishable by fine or imprisonment in a city or county jail rather than in a penitentiary.
    Legal Definition of Misdemeanor

    Just like torture isn't really torture right? (It's "Enhanced Interrogation?)

    A misdemeanor is in fact a crime for which you can be arrested, tried & incarcerated....Anyone want to argue that point?

    Since this is on topic, I'll respond:

    What ever side is disturbing the peace (& thus preventing free speech) should be removed by the police so that other citizens can hear the words of their elected officials.
    If it can be proven that the loud protests are part of a conspiracy to prevent First Amendment rights from being exercised, further (more serious) criminal charges may be warranted.

    I answered your question, but will carefully screen any future questions you ask for their intelligence (my decision alone) & their relevance to the topic.

    How did you answer my question?


    What do you think of the union thugs assaulting a protestor?


    Why do you have this one sided opinion, that you claim is generic and universal, but you can not, not once bring yourself to critisize any left wing actions?


    it reeks of your hyper-partisan hackery....

    Just how many Brooklyn Bridge Title Deeds do you own?

    My view is it is a honest expression of outrage until it can be proved they are a rent a mob. And even if it is well organized it don't mean that is real outrage being expressed.

    And where is the suppression of the free speech you mention?
    From politicians and the bureaucrats who have a rather big soap box and with armed men who make sure they do have their venue ?

    And why even suggest that people who speak up should be arrested? I thought that the 1st Amendment was for Unpopular Speech, not just popular speech and I thought we as a people do have the right to address our grievances to our elected Representatives. I guess i was wrong. People who speak out against the moral, wise, intelligent, and so benificiant all that is needed is there speech and any who oppose are dangerous and maybe should be gently reeducated or fast tracked to a euthanasia clinic if old enough.

    The arrogance of this poll, the slant, the subject of it makes it a candidate for the Conspiracy Forum.
    I have seen far too much shouting down, disrespect, etc, occur at discussions and public meetings...
    People do need to learn how to speak, and how to properly conduct themselves..
    If they cannot or will not do this , then some good sealing tape across the mouth and a straight jacket are in order.
    Both political parties do this and should be ashamed of themselves.

    I suspect that "Libertarians" would like to see health care regressed to that of 200 years ago, when the rich could have a doctor close at hand and the poor would just die...
    I say its about time we joined the rest of the civilized world and had health care for all, as a right, but limited, of course..
