In Order To Peaceably Assemble, Don’t You Have to Be Peaceful First?

When is a peaceable assembly not a peaceable assembly? When it violates other people’s rights. Like when a small crowd sits in the middle of the road on a city street. They blocked the busy intersection at 5th Avenue and Stewart Street smack in the heart of the city’s downtown. Once again, in protest central, otherwise known as Seattle, a city that has hundreds of left-wing demonstrations of various sizes per year (many/most unpermitted), the city continues to set dubious precedents in constitutional jurisprudence. Don’t get me started on the million-dollar payouts to arrested demonstrators.
