Actually, it is, but only if you are a liberal.

A liberal can`t be inconvenienced by overhearing a prayer in school or sometimes by hearing the Pledge of Allegiance or viewing the Flag of the United States (seem to have no problem with the Mexican one, though).

A liberal can`t be inconvenienced by being called a bad name, so it is deemed `hate speech`, but have no problem throwing around such terms as `racist`, `cracker`, `nazi`..etc.

While liberal students have no problem inviting criminals, cop murderers or even enemy heads of state to speak at their schools. But inconvenienced if a conservative speaker is scheduled. (free speech for me but not for thee)

And in each case, they will scream that it is thier `constitutional right` to do what they want and `unconstitutional` to make them do anything they don`t want to.

@Mjustin - No, but if you walk down a well known dangerous ally, fully knowing that it`s a bad part of town and it happens a lot, then YES, Yes it is.

@Mjustin: Apparently, you haven`t read the Constitution either. It doesn`t say that you`re allowed to protest wherever and whenever you want; it says that Congress isn`t allowed to pass bills prohibiting the freedom of speech. There`s a big difference.

The freedom of speech does not mean the government must provide you with a podium and a microphone, nor does it mean other people are forced to listen to you. The freedom of speech means that no one is allowed to use force on you to stop you from speaking on your own property on your own time and money.

The cops controlling the protest is NOT abridging the freedom of speech;
There`s no such thing as the right to forcibly occupy another`s property or block public streets.

I bet you`re the kind of person that cried "censorship!" when Comedy Central edited South Park`s Mohamed episode.

@ den3jlb - Oh please, breaching the peace? It`s called a protest, you ignorant imbecile. It`s protected under the First Amendment to the US Constitution, which you apparently haven`t read. It guarantees the right of the people to peaceable assemble and petition the government for a redress of grievances.

That`s it. Freedom of speech is dead. When nonviolent protestors get beaten down by the police and people just act like they deserved it simply because they tried to express an opinion, there is no freedom of speech.

Does anyone know if the cops are using a weaker form of pepperspray because REAL pepperspray or mace would affect the cops in the front row as well.

@mjustin.

Terrible example.

A more relevant one would be "like how I get assaulted if I leave the house, walk through a Harlem neighborhood with an "I hate n*****s" tshirt on."

These people know the dangers of breaching the peace. They don`t get any sympathy from me.

People...Look at where this lady is at, She`s in the front row on the wrong side of a riot shield, a place where it should be obvious that you are NOT supposed to be, why is NO surprise that getting mace in the face would eventually happen....So No, Im still dont and never will feel sorry for these people that bring it on them selves...

I say that because it doesn`t take a genius to know what happens when riot police show up, and they are choosing to stand in the front of the line.

@ Tacos4Brkfst - They`re fighting to get money out of politics and to stop big banks from gambling with depositors` money. Just look at any interview with a protester, and they`ll tell you something to that effect.

At my towns police station, some of the police actually spray pepper spray into their food :P (they use a food grade spray, as to not inflict chemical reactions upon people)

@Rawrg

The space they occupy is just that; public; free and open to all.

So they are not directly on any paths. Street marching (yes, marching, which implies they DONT stay in one spot, which is actually what occurs) only take place during demonstration

No, because the constitution protects people from overbearing government. The laws protect the rights of traders, and OWS thugs have been breaking those laws.

Of course the right to camp out in public areas and the right to sht on legitimate traders` doorstep and trash their business is not constitutionally-protected either.

I agree with the goals of OWS, but blocking people from getting to their work is a pretty dick move and vindictive. Just because you don`t have a job doesnt mean that you have the right to keep others from having one as well.

In my the military we were required to hold our eyelids open while they sprayed us directly in the sockets. The worst effect was feeling like I couldn`t breathe. I can`t imagine how much worse that feeling would have been if I were sprayed in the mouth with that stuff.

"Sorry but their right to not be inconvenienced isn`t constitutionally protected. And I doubt you`d want it that way."

I think this covers it IMHO

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

This should just be "An OWS Protester is sprayed at point plank"... Not getting my sympathy points for her being a female, she seems old enough to make her own decision to be there and take the pepper spray or not.

culberto-", a woman?"

And she`s special because she`s a woman how?

Haven`t they been yelling for Equal Rights for over a century?

Act like an idiot, get pepper-sprayed like an idiot. Her sex has nothing to do with it (until, of course, she want`s everyone to have a pitty-party).

That`s usually how it is: "I`m a WOMAN! I expect to be treated exactly the same as a MAN!" (takes a punch) "HOW COULD YOU HIT ME??? I`M A GIRL!!!"

They`re even pepper spraying elderly people.

I think the police in general have proven that they aren`t mature enough to carry pepper spray or taser guns. They should also sit in time-out for a while and think about what they`ve done.

Youve proved that you havent got a clue what you are talking about, and that you think you should be able to do anything without repercussion.

Pretty sure pepperspray isn`t meant to be a distance weapon, and not only that, it would work exactly the same from any distance. It`s not a shotgun.

more of the same, protest your elected dictator and the elect another for more of the same. While your corporations rob and steal from you with impunity backed by the homeland control police forces (which by the are armed to teeth like military army)

And the government that is bought and soled sends the government forces abroad to kill and be killed while you ALLOW a silent coup of your government to take place. Follow the drating money, and you shall see your enemy. It`s more insidious when the enemy is one of your own.
