The First Amendment right to protest the government ends when you use a bolt cutter to breach a security fence and enter a restricted area, a federal judge told six people he found guilty Wednesday for their actions during a chaotic protest outside last summers Democratic National Convention in South Philadelphia.
A fence is a fence is a fence, Senior U.S. District Judge Michael J. Baylson told the six out-of-towners after finding each guilty of trespassing on restricted federal grounds, a misdemeanor. As a matter of common sense, said the judge, when an adult sees a fence, it is clear that is a restriction.
In a sea of hundreds of protesters, one of the six defendants, Travis Martin, 29, of Houston, used the bolt cutter to pierce a hole in an 8-foot chain-link security fence around 10:45 p.m. July 27 in Franklin D. Roosevelt Park near Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, authorities said. Martin and his codefendants then entered through the hole and were quickly arrested by Philadelphia police, according to evidence presented in the three-day nonjury trial.

Remember the media encouraging attacks during the campaign at Trump rallies? The media was encouraging violence. They did it with the Michael Brown and Trayvon bs too.
The Mafia gives another family a chance take take out their dirty laundry.
If they don’t, they take it out for them.
Dems need to get rid of their dirty laundry.
Speaking of worthless garbage, I know the guy that shot Scalise is dead. But haven’t seen an update on Scalise anywhere.
You beat me by 33 seconds. smile.
Already did, thanks.
..... They were probably absolutely dumbfounded that the Judge didn't give them a special "Participation" award like they would've gotten in school. The next step will be to take legal action against the Judge for discrimination and will demand a super special "Participation" award or else they wil riot and start killing people..
Thanks Guys. Looks like he will make it but with some rough times ahead.
I was thinking massive blood loss could cause brain damage but he was talking OK before he went into surgery.
Scalise was reportedly visited by President and Mrs. Trump. Said he was going to require several more surgical procedures to repair internal damage.
I pray he does.
I heard he has had multiple transfusions.
Not sure what organs were hit by the bullet.
Lawyer says, “They were expressing their First Amendment rights in a different way.”
Well if that’s the standard I guess anything goes, like attempted murder of congressmen playing ball in public?
Multiple organ damage. So much blood loss.
Hard to recover 100 percent from an injury like that.
But God is in the business of miracles.
You are right. At church tonight our minister offered up a prayer for everyone that was injured as well as for President Trump. It has been truly amazing at how much our church group has grown in the last six months and how many young couples as well as young singles are coming to the mid-week service.
That is great.
We let Bernie supporters get this warm, fuzzy image last year. We let our guard down to the communist radicals that they really were all along. They are the modern branch of Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground.
Some twisted leftist useful idiot did this to a good person. Makes me sick. But this is what hate does. Blind stupid hate, it's prevalent in the Media, in Bureaucracy, in Education, in Entertainment, in Multi National Corporations. Those like this all serve the wrong masters.
I am glad you caught that too.
It’s sort of why I posted the article.
