I think I know how to cut it way down. Don’t send out 7 cops for every 1 non-violent protester you want to prevent from exercising their constitutional rights.
“Writing for the Court, Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes declared, “The right of peaceable assembly is a right cognate to those of free speech and free press and is equally fundamental,” and “peaceable assembly for lawful discussion cannot be made a crime.”
I was surprised at the large deal the OWS folks made that the cops were pushing and manhandling women as a seemingly separate issue from the treatment of men. . It sounded very 1950′s, Rick Santorum, (spell check wants me to make this sanatorium…)weaker vessel.
