Peaceful protestors being arrested in the capital rotunda right now for protesting

Trump camps at the same time the liar in charge sits before congress spewing complete bullshit about the Homestead camp. Most of those being arrested appear to be white older Americans.

2. I thought we had the right to assemble peacefully. What were these people


Doing that warranted arrest?! Oh, I get it. The police can tell them to move along, leave, etc and if they donít, theyíre arrested. So much for peaceful assembly and free speech.

I know, Iím probably uninformed about my rights. Okay. I get that. So when and where is peaceful assembly allowed? It just bothers me that right in our Nationís Capitol people cannot peacefully assemble and express their opinion. Where were they supposed to be?

3. They were standing silently holding signs.

Four of them were lying down.

4. I know. So why were they arrested ?

Was it because the police asked them to stop and leave? They refused so they were arrested? Is carrying a sign illegal? Weíre they blocking traffic? (The ones on the floor.)

Where can they protest and just peacefully assemble without fear of arrest?

I get that maybe arrest was their goal....to bring more attention. But what if they just wanted to protest? Not spend a night in jail.

5. They were not blocking anyone. There weren't many people there. About 12 or 15 maybe.

Dumpco wipes their ass on the constitution every day.
