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 a redress of grievances.

The whole country is a "free speech zone". Get it NeoThug assholes?
Supposedly police intimidation of legitimate protest only happens elsewhere, or so we were led to believe by all the tut-tutting during the Olympics.
And to those who say that "well, something must have been behind it" I say, the police showed no warrants, forcibly entered homes in armed gangs, made unreasonable seizures of personal property, intimidated journalists, and arrested lawyers ... so how is this any different from what went down in China?
The NeoThugs are so afraid of answering for their behaviour that they ran from the very idea that a group of college kids might protest them. I guess McSame and the Rezident might have their feelings hurt or something if they realized someone disagreed with them.
What a bunch of totalitarian imbeciles.
