http://video.foxnews.com/v/4205484/political-protest-or-harassment Do you think this group was right in protesting at private homes? I think it is over the line. They are on this guys property. I live in a state that has and enforces the "make my day law" guess what would have happened here.

I would have to say this passes into harrassement. If they protest at his place of his work...fine. But don't go to their house with their kids. I hear that a teenage kid was home alone when the protest happened and was scared by the anger mob outside his house. Poor kid. What did he have to do with anything? Why scare a kid? This crosses the line big time.

I agree, that is why we have the right to bear arms...

I'm guessing that since a teenager was at home alone, that the homeowner didn't give permission for the protest, which is against the law. [i]Q. What about free speech activity on private property? A. The general rule is that free speech activity cannot take place on private property absent the consent of the property owner.[/i] http://www.democrats.com/right-to-protest I wonder if they obtained a permit? Since they used amplifying devices a permit would be required. See above link. I would like to know why this group is ABOVE the law? Oh sorry, I get it now, you just have to grease the right pockets, can't get any higher than that. As always just just my 2 cents worth!!!

because they are protesting for warm fuzzies. law enforcement is so scared that everything they do will be deemed politically incorrect and will end up with charges against them.

They definitely crossed the line. This man's personal life is separate from his business life and his family certainly weren't involved in anything. I could have scattered them right quick with some birdshot from one of those third floor windows.

I call this harassment, not political protest. And I would have had the police department there in a matter of seconds and filed trespassing charges against each and everyone of them. It's called an attempt at intimidation...

yes it is and you are right. Calling the police is a way to handle that.... as long as they will
