so, are you suggesting that the "christian protesters" should have had a small army of lawyers on retainer before they entered "public
i understand the difference between "peaceably assemble" and not, however, a pigs head on a stick and signage with inflamatory rhetoric is the name of
the game. have you ever protested anything ??
the muslims who attacked, broke every law imaginable with regard to assembly, assault, cooersion, extortion (on some level) and potentially
terroristic activities. (openly assaulting Americans exercising their rights)
are a few stones and projectiles really worth the potential hassle ??
what were the OWS participants charged with for returning
the tear gas cans hurled at them ??
edit to add: since i cannot view the video and from what you others have indicated, it appears the muslim participants "threw the first punch" perse
... whether bottle, stone, stick, punch, i can't see it, remember.
so, if the above is wrong, please correct me before attacking my position, please?
to me, the difference here would have been ... IF the christian group had arranged to have a bucket of pigs blood dumped atop the muslim participants
-- it could justify a violent reaction.
(and assault charges on both sides)
IF the christian group hurled projectiles first, they should have been led out in handcuffs.
IF the christian group had intentionally damaged their festival makeup ... stands, foods, costuming, then the muslim group may have reasonable
justification to retaliate.
(am not a fan over materialism but some are)
however, as it is presented, all sides performed poorly and this serves no purpose but to inflame serious misunderstandings on all sides.
