Activist Dale Gohr of Clarkdale: The first 10 Amendments to the Constitution of the United States are called the Bill of Rights and largely they were designed and written to Limit the Intrusion of the Federal Government; in regulating the activities of the independent states and the citizens’; thereof. these rights were so important to the framers that they duplicated them to; ‘eliminate any falsification or confusion’. The first Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for redress of grievances.” Look at a comparison of civil and uncivil protests in light of our base, which is The United States Constitution. If the meaning of the 1st Amendment is followed it is all about the federal government; and the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government. Do any protesters know what petition means?

There is no right to protest in the First Amendment! There is a Right to peaceably assemble, which does not include:

1) Assault, battery, bodily injury, private or public property damage.

2) Unpermitted impeding traffic ‘vehicle, pedestrian or lawful animal traffic.

3) To petition the government for a redress of grievances; does not allow for anyone to confront elected, appointed or hired government personnel; outside their work area (without their invited consent); especially in public or near their residence.

The screaming of Maxine Waters and the raucous call to riot by Michael Moore are almost text book examples of assault. The rioters should be arrested and charged as soon as any of the illegitimate actions take place. However, I can readily understand reluctance of law enforcement personnel, when they have been vilified and sometimes prosecuted at about every turn by their own and all the way up to national leadership. Former President Obama called the police (who were doing their jobs) “Stupid”; and supported Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter when they were physically attacking law enforcement officers. Local Leaders weren’t any help to officers either. Elected Sheriff’s really need to know; the power they actually possess.

The Christian Men’s Group Promise Keepers and The TEA Party held huge rallies in Washington D.C. and left without any Injuries or property damage and with no clean-up needed. Obama called The TEA Party “Domestic Terrorists”. Neither of these groups initiates or uses violence or intimidation toward anyone. The Maxine Waters and Michael Moore’s should have them arrested for attempted riot incitement.
