Re: “St. Paddy's Day Two off the hook

There are two postings, one from someone named Dusty and another which is unsigned, on your site regarding the dismissal of the St. Patty's 7 defendants. Both postings are troubling to me for several reasons: 1. There's a lot of anger apparent in them. I can't help but wonder why the very existence of opinions which differ can cause some people to lash out at the speaker. 2. Neither of these people have any idea what the 1st Amendment actually protects. 3. None of the peace activists were there to "protest". All were there simply to march as invited guests in the parade. They had a permit which was clearly displayed. It was actually the police acting at the request of the parade organizer who stopped the peace marchers. Up to that point the marchers had no reason to think they weren't welcome. 3. Perhaps Dusty, whoever he/she is, would like to be able to tell people what form their exercise of free speech should take, but his/her permission is not required by that amendment. 4. No one's day was ruined by the existence of peace marchers. It was ruined by police violence. 5. If the mere presence of a peace sign ruins your day, I'm sorry for you, but there's no reason why I should sympathize with you. Jo Ann
