The search function shows that members are not swayed by links even if they totally refute a narrative being put forth and on top of that all information i spoke of is found in the thread itself. From what i can see there is always just attempts to not believe anything posted.
On the other hand the information i put forth here does indeed ring true to anyone who has been following the drama and has an open mind in researching.
To put it in more simple terms most posting here are dug in as to their beliefs and facts are beside the point of political beliefs.

The search function on this site is notoriously bad, which you'd know if you had been around much at all. I can generally find what I'm looking for, though there are times I am unable.
This link however shows us how many posts you've made which include a link other than any you may have quoted.
That number is exactly zero as of this posting.
Further engaging with you does nothing but detract from what has been done to these boys by the media and various personalities with large audiences.

settled this one confidentially but for apparently a good chunk of change
Burke's attorney, Lin Wood, told NPR in an email that the lawsuit has "been amicably settled to the satisfaction of all parties." "For almost 20 years, it has been my privilege to represent John Ramsey, Patsy Ramsey (before her untimely death in 2006) and their son, Burke in a number of defamation lawsuits," Wood said. "It is now my professional and personal wish for this family that they no longer suffer the pain of false accusations in the future. I sincerely hope the CBS case is my last lawsuit for these fine clients and friends." A CBS spokesman agreed that "the case had been amicably resolved." The final settlement amount was not disclosed, but the complaint, filed in Michigan, was seeking no less than $250 million in compensatory damages and no less than $500 million in punitive damages.
Defamation and libel lawsuits Wood's first libel and defamation client was Richard Jewell, the security guard falsely accused in the Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta in 1996. Jewell was quickly followed by other high-profile cases, including John and Patsy Ramsey, the parents of JonBenét Ramsey.  Wood was the plaintiff's lead attorney for John and Patsy Ramsey and their son Burke, prosecuting defamation claims on their behalf against St. Martin's Press, Time Inc., The Fox News Channel, American Media, Inc., Star, The Globe, Court TV and The New York Post. John and Patsy Ramsey were also sued in two separate defamation lawsuits arising from the publication of their book, The Death of Innocence. The suit was brought by two individuals named in the book as having been investigated by Boulder police as suspects in JonBenét's murder. The Ramseys were defended in those lawsuits by Lin Wood and three other Atlanta attorneys, James C. Rawls, Eric P. Schroeder, and S. Derek Bauer. The lawsuits against the Ramseys were dismissed. The ruling was partially based on an in-depth decision by U.S. District Court Judge Julie Carnes that "abundant evidence" in the murder case pointed to an intruder having committed the crime. In November 2006, Wood, on behalf of Rod Westmoreland, a friend of JonBenét Ramsey's father, filed a defamation suit against Keith Greer, who had posted a message on an Internet forum using the pseudonym "undertheradar". Greer had accused Westmoreland of participating in the kidnapping and murder. Greer has defended his statement. Wood went on to represent former U.S. Congressman Gary Condit, and the alleged victim in the Kobe Bryant case. He has also represented fellow attorney Howard K. Stern in defamation lawsuits against John O'Quinn, lawyer for Virgie Arthur, the mother of Anna Nicole Smith and against Rita Cosby, the author of Blonde Ambition, The Untold Story of Anna Nicole Smith. In November, 2011, Wood was hired by then-presidential candidate Herman Cain, in his efforts to fight off sexual harassment accusations. Wood currently represents Burke Ramsey, older brother of murder victim JonBenet Ramsey, in a pair of related lawsuits stemming from the CBS network docuseries "The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey." They include a $150 Million suit against Dr. Werner Spitz, a Michigan-based forensic pathologist, over his assertion in a promotional CBS Detroit radio interview that Burke killed his sister when a young child.  The other suit is a $750 Million suit against CBS and other parties involved in the docuseries, where the same allegations were made. Other Significant lawsuits On November 30, 2012, CNN covered the DaVita Inc. Medicare and Medicaid Fraud Lawsuit pending in which Wood is a lead attorney for the plaintiffs. That lawsuit settlement in 2015 was nearly $500 Million plus attorneys fees.

The events on that day and the legality of participants are very much at the heart of any libel suit.
The saddest part of all this is that no one is teaching the boys how they were wrong and how their actions caused subsequent events in the media. They will likely sometime in the future fall prey to the same type of event they were a part of simply because no one taught them right from wrong because everyone put political gains above the boys education.
Another sad part is that it started out with such good and admirable attentions of marching for the rights of the conceived and a teacher allowed the students to fall prey to some groups with not so admirable of intent.
I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV. So I am not in the know about these things. It sounds like you are more in tune with the law than I am.
Please explain it for me, so my small brain can understand.
If they "did" have a permit to assemble, and this exact situation took place. How would it affect the libel/defamation case?
If they "did not" have a permit to assemble, and this exact situation took place. How would it affect the libel/defamation case?
Please show me in detail how a permit changes the way lawyers and judges would look at it in terms of libel/defamation?
I truly don't understand how it would make a difference, and wait with bated breath to learn something new.

He knows he got nothing, I think he's just trolling for attention.
+1. back to the topic the media has for many years slandered and attacked those they don't like on a partisan basis.
