This new antiprotest law, this will be a good indicater of what they intend to do -- if the 1st Amendment is alive or dead.
There are 4-5 local police agencies one deals with in DC depending literally whether you are standing on the curb or in the gutter. The Supreme Court is under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Marshalls.
Usually so long as you keep walking, one can protest at the White House fence, just no static protests.
As one FReeper posted, it is mainly for those under Secret Service protection. Makes sense since Mittens has been “glittered” already. I can’t imagine if it was paint.
Being as this is the first I heard of it, I would have to learn more or see what happens when we are in DC.
