I just wanted to take the time to remind those living the U.S., federal jurisdiction or territories thereof, or U.S. citizens living anywhere in the world of something of great importance: This also is pertinent to all others, so everyone might as well read.

Does this apply to peace protestors?

no i don't believe it does...but it's up to the interuptation of the law and the actions taken by the protesters in the eyes of the police.

it basically says that direct interference in the war-like for instance being a human shield-can get you sent to county for 30 days.

Thomas, splendid stuff but why this, and why now?
I'm sure we all delight in constitutional prose; but could this not as easily have been legislation on the Colorado Beetle, or the sale of aspirin?
What has prompted you to post this?

i've shown people how beat the crap out of someone who intended to beat the crap out of someone. i live on a military base and i like to cause problems. they all know me at the MP station. that doesn't mean i'm stupid. i just like to make people nervous. i got in trouble for talking with a soldier about how america will cause a big war, and this old guy got pissed at me and called the MPs.


it also applies to people who wish to cause widespread terror. want to train a revolutionist group, hell it could even apply to gangs, crips, bloods, MM etc... but you know how that is. it's going to cause a problem if we wish to defend ourselves. anyone caught with the POS anarchist cookbook will be arrested or somethin

A certain moderator needs to locate his bottle of chill pills and follow his prescription.

Or perhaps we may be missing a moderator in the very near future.
