    Is 'uncivil' disobedience rising?

    On Saturday, a ceremony honoring US Navy veteran Dario Raschio was held up for 15-minutes after more than 100 protesters burst into the room shouting "hands-up, don't shoot!"

    Once again I will say piss on these idiots.
    At some point these lawless, godless, cocksuckers are infringing on the rights of others and should be put down like the worthless garbage they are !!!

    well, "put down" is a little harsh, but in the absence of common decency, they should be removed.

    It really is no different than the Westboro Church....they have a right to express themselves, but others have a right to express themselves as well and if one group is interfering with the others' rights, then the interlopers should be removed...by force if necessary

    Theres always something to protest about in the USA. I grew up in the 60s and saw the good protests and riots. It's how you go about it and as stated above these lawless people need to be removed and heinous acts subdued and jailed.

    At the tree lighting in Philadelphia, protesters shouted down a choir of young black children performing at the ceremony. How does that further the cause of ending police brutality against minorities?

    I don't have a problem with people protesting, but these people are morons and don't even know the facts, so they can eat poop.

    i'm often amazed at the number of things people deem worthy of protesting, and up here it's the same professionals at most of them.

    I have an honest question. Do these protestors have families to support? You know, like by working? I mean dang. By the time I get done with work, I want to spend time with my kids & wife. I guess they are just that committed to the cause.

    oftem times these are students (usually career students who seem to be in school forever) and professional protestors who did this nonsense for a living.

    There are legitimate protests but up here, at least, they are few and far between. I still remember being in university where i wrote for the school paper, we had a poll on the upcoming provincial election and most students supported a party that promised to raise tuition. That party won and they, as promised, raised tuition. We then had to tolerate "protests" about the increase. The same people who voted for that party were pissed at them implementing their platform. People are stupid.

    People that don't respect others or show basic manners can't expect their point to be respected. That only sets things back. The average person will lose all sympathy to their cause.

    They do it to intimidate appeasers into compliance. It works so we can expect more of it.

    We have the same issue.

    The college connection is interesting isn't it? It seems that part of earning a degree is to take mandatory classes about how much your nation sucks. For some reason this will help you be a better programmer or engineer.

    When I was in high school I had a buddy who was pretty liberal (as most young people are). During lunch one day, he asked me if I wanted to go downtown to go to protest with a group of people from school. I asked what the protest was for, and he said he didn't know, but it should be fun.
