Police should be able to think their way out of a paper bag, and ignore such ridiculous statutes. That is probably too much to ask though this day in age.

I'm genuinely disappointed, because Mr Kokesh is apparently a Ron Paul activist and he's mixed up with Jodie Evans. I think he means well, but she is another story.
If you don't like someone but you do like their idea, you should join them with the points you do agree on. Basically you're saying people should focus on the negative and focus on areas they disagree. What people SHOULD do is focus on the positive and focus on where there is agreement.
There are not enough liberty activists in this country to have to split hairs over the fine points, and if there were why divide people like that unnecessarily?edit on 29-5-2011 by civilchallenger because: (no reason given)
For instance, in the fall of 1968, Kent State was treated to two appearances by Mark Rudd, the S.D.S. Ieader who had led the seizure of campus buildings earlier that year at Columbia University in New York. Another frequent visitor was Bernardine Dohrn, an S.D.S. official who calls herself a "revolutionary Communist," and who according to James Michener, in Kent State,* told the students: "They've shot blacks in Orangeburg, South Carolina, and they're certainly going to shoot whites here."
Members of the staff at the regional S.D.S. office in Cleveland constantly made the short trip to Kent, where they propagandized and recruited. A student revolutionary told Michener: "We established our communes in three Ohio cities, one in Columbus, two in Akron, two in Cleveland. The idea was to teach severe discipline. Every single decision—was a girl member entitled to buy an ice cream cone?—was decided by group discussion. The object was to produce revolutionaries programmed to obey orders, even if they involved severe personal sacrifice or death. You surrendered all personal money, idiosyncrasies and will power, assured that you would come out of the experience with total dedication."
On April 30, 1970, Richard Nixon sent American troops into Cambodia, allegedly to shut off supplies to the Vietcong. The move was a typically phony Nixon operation, of course, because at the same time his Administration was sending more and more war material to Soviet Russia, which in turn supplied the Vietcong with most of their equipment—a practice which candidate Nixon had denounced in 1968. But the students didn't know that, because the Establishment media hadn't told them. The next day was Friday, May first, the international Communist holiday of May Day, when Communists around the world celebrate the "inevitability" of their takeover of the world. At about eleven-thirty that night, demonstrators at Kent built a bonfire on South Water Street, blocking traffic. They also set a toolshed in the vicinity on fire, producing a considerable blaze. All twenty-four Kent city policemen and sixty-five Portage County sheriff's deputies were ordered to duty, and told that they had to handle a "riot in progress." Michener writes that a curious student asked a stranger what it was all about and was told: "It's a planned movement to strain the National Guard. They're tied up at Columbus and on the truck strike in Akron and Cleveland, and we don't think they have enough men to cover this too."

Veiled insults. I love it. In other words, you have nothing.
Check my post history on WBBC. They are vile and evil, but have a right to freedom of speech and protest.
How ironic that they can protest funerals, but a group can't protest here.
If you feel a right is being violated at the library or the Veteran's Memorial, have at it.
They are public property, and you have every right.
