No that would be considered vandalism, obviously. Civil disobedience doesn't include those jackasses wearing bandannas over their faces breaking windows. Those are not protesters but rioters.



Breaking a window is against the law.

We both agree with that.

Disrupting a court preceding is also against the law.

In my home state in the city of San Antonio it's illegal to flirt. Would that prevent you from chatting up a member of the opposite sex who you were attracted to just because it's a law?

Murder trials are a bit different than high profile government appointments. Suggesting I protest at one to learn some kind of lesson is pretty dumb.

Explain what the difference is from a legal standpoint.

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.


i dont care if this chick goes to jail or not but what?

to me free to do it implies that i will be free after i do it as well.

I think you should find a high profile murder trial and go do some disruptive protesting. See how it turns out for you.


Did you just equate Jeff Sessions getting sworn in as AG to a high profile murder?

Well..You might be right..

That's up to whatever judge hears the case. My opinions about it mean nothing. Something along the lines of all government decisions should be protested and questioned and challenged including the appointment of Attorney General. In that case protestation may be appropriate no matter what the venue. Whereas a murder trial no matter what the conditions, having no effect on the public aside from weather an alleged murder gets sentenced or let go, would not warrant protestation until after the judge and jury have made their decisions.

That being said I'm no lawyer and I'm no judge. So it's a moot point.

Identical in the case of Jeff Sessions being sworn in as AG.

The murder victim was the self respect of a formerly proud nation.

This administration so far is big on showmanship and low on substance.

It wouldn't surprise me that they go after all the low hanging fruit. They seem to be inept at the stuff that matters.

Why go after hard things when this hippy lady is so easy. Even though it won't help society in any way his followers we be proud.

free means not imprisoned or enslaved.
are you really free to do something if you will be imprisoned or enslaved for doing it after?

im struggling with this

You acknowledge what she did was against the law, yet are still wondering why she was arrested.

Not at all. I am wondering in what logical and reasonable society she deserves to face one year in jail. Her arrest is no mystery even though the public disturbance would have been far more minimal if she wasn't escorted out.

Not really, some people love to be behind any law when it suits. The only problem I have is that nobody present laughed when Trump was sworn in. I did it at home, presumably I might get arrested if I ever go to the states though.

So i watched the video myself a couple times, to get the straight dope before I made a call. I gotta say, I'm blown away. This is straight up fascist BS, and troubling.

Listening and watching the tape, I actually had to rewind a couple times to figure out where the disruption was, or even the laughing part. I had to check online at a few sites to even find the point in the recording where laughter was heard. It's barely distinguishable from all the other background noise of doors, chairs that shuffled, ect. Like, one second long. It actually got louder when security intervened. But the whole time, Shelby's voice and speech remained center stage. The people in the background look bored, if anything, but I don't see major disruption, and maybe a couple people even noticed the "disruption" at all.

Now when she was being arrested, and dragged out, after Shelby spoke, she was yelling and carrying on and being disruptive and shouting, but, well, she was being arrested for something pretty damned lame and petty at that point, so all bets were off. But until they dragged her off, I honestly would not have been aware of her presence in that hearing at all.

For laughing? It looks like she did a lot more than that.

Yes, again I say she did nothing but make a tiny sound until they began dragging her out.

Sooo, her actions caused a disruption of legal proceedings?

Pretty sure thats, uhhh....illegal.

Well, you're free to go ahead and kill your neighbor, but don't expect to not deal with the consequences.

From the looks of the three videos I've seen of the incident, the legal proceeding hadn't been disrupted until they started dragging her off. So until they disrupted the legal proceeding to arrest her, she wasn't disrupting anything.
