I only question why the video is being discussed in the 9/11 Conspiracy section.

Let me try one more time,

Do you support the cop's conduct? yes or no

A number of years ago, there was a large demonstration here organized by a bunch of local college students protesting Bush's decision to go to war in Afghanistan. They assembled at the park downtown, then marched down mainstreet with their banners to the state capitol, handing out political pamphlets to the peopel on the sidewalks on the way there.

Slight problem- they didn't have a permit and they didn't tell anyone they were going to do it. The police scrambled to block off traffic so that these idiots wouldn't get run over, which in turn backed traffic up all the way to the highway, and when they stopped their march the cops rushed in and arrested the organizers leading the march. Just becuase these people felt they needed to get theor political message out it didn't give them the right to put themselves and others in jeopardy.

These conspiracy mongers in this video simply weren't handing out materials here because they had full banners and flags advertising their political statements. These guys were organized as a protest meeting, meaning they need to follow the same demonstration laws that everyone else does. They were right there next to the street creating a distraction for motorists, which means someone driving by would try to read the banner saying, "9/11 was an inside..." and by the time they got to the word, "job" they'd be plowing their car into parked cars, hitting pedestrians, or whatever.

The moral of the story is that the rights one one man ends where the rights of another man begins. That applies to the conspiracy mongers just as it does everyone else.



Oh please, if those were breast cancer awareness banners and videos you wouldn't say that.

"The First Amendment of the United States Constitution specifically allows peaceful demonstrations and the freedom of assembly as part of a measure to facilitate the redress of such grievances. "Amendment I: Congress shall make no law ... abridging ... the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."[9]

You can disagree with the message, but you can't stop it. They were not endangering anyone and you know it. Like it or not, you live in America.
