    BS. You don't want pepper sprayed, obey police orders and move your ass. Simple as that.

    And to hell with the rights of the citizen to peaceful protest?

    I don't know your laws well enough, but what right do the police have to tell the students to disperse when they are not breaking the law in any way that I am aware of. Or are you not allowed to gather in groups any more? (I've got a feeling we now have a law allowing the police to disperse groups of more than three, but I don't know if it was actually made law and/or is being ignored. Anyone know?)

    I'm having this conversation in another forum. Local statutes sometimes requires permits for assembling. Also, parks have hours of operation and prohibitions against camping. The sitting on the sidewalk thing blocks traffic.

    None of that is reason to pepper-spray non-violent protesters.

    Absobloodylutely.

    It's also really stupid. If you deny citizens the safety valve of PEACEFUL protest, what options do protestors have other than slinking back home and saying the Govt and Police can do anything they want...?

    Violent protest?

    How stupid do you have to be to be a college student these days? If a few dozen heavily armed cops told me to haul ass outta there, I'd be all ass and elbows getting outta there. But, I was never a college student.
