redress of grievances, as is granted to us by the
. That's primarily because they could say that we're inciting civil unrest by protesting, therefore arresting everyone for
Not to mention the most recent Canadian Police incident, where Canadian Police officers went through a crowd creating problems
just so they
could shut down the protest. The thread outlining this can be found here
. What are we
to do now, if those that are "sworn to protect us" are actually out there inciting riots to prevent us from speaking our minds? Aren't they
supposed to be protecting our rights?
What we have here is a direct breach of the most elementary of rights; the right for We The People to stand up in protest of something that our
government is doing. This is scary, as that very simple act may entice some to violence, and could very well undermine all of the freedoms that we've
spent the past 230 years building.
I'm watching this one for development.
Mods/Admins, what say you? SO, what will you do if the government comes a'knockin' about this?
