A woman began laughing during Jeff Sessions' Senate confirmation hearing. She may now be sentenced to a year in prison.

Even though she was there in protest and causing a disruption, facing jail time for this is insane.

I'm so glad that I don't live in america, good luck to you all.

No, woman could face jail time for attempting to impede and disrupt the hearing. It was proven in court that she had (that) intent, and a jury of her peers reached that conclusion.

Whether she chose to laugh or yell should of course not matter.

She can say whatever she wants on "her" free land.
She can't yell fire in a crowded theatre or disrupt a courtroom.

She was free to make whatever disruption she wanted...And she is also free to deal with the consequences of the actions she freely undertook. Just because you're free to do something doesn't mean it won't have consequences.

She is free to laugh all she wants from the comfort of her home.

I guess who ever is threatening jail time is not a fan of this.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

You do realize if a person had an outburst like that in any courtroom in America, they'd be slapped with contempt of court charges and jailed, right? The courtroom (which is effectively what the confirmation hearing is legally considered) has always had a "modified" set of civil rights within it's doors.

Three rights, makes a left.



If it was shown that she infringed upon another persons right, then she is in the wrong.

She did more than just laugh... Something certain media outlets are failing to report for obvious reasons.

She's disrupting a proceeding.

If she wants to protest fine.

But disrupting things. That's another fettle of kish.

Arresting her was warranted.

Yes they are. You can not go into any courtroom in America, or anywhere in the world likely, and disrupt what is going on.

Anyone defending her is crazy.

Technically it would only take one person who isn't a public servant to be disturbed for disorderly conduct to apply. I was always told as a police officer, you could not press disorderly conduct charges cause you are paid to deal with unruly people....Elected officials in an official proceeding is a little different.

Time and place....
