First, the Democrats discovered infanticide in the Constitution. Now they’re discovered the right to loot somewhere in there.
U.S. District Court Judge R. Brooke Jackson ruled on Friday night to block the use of chemicals like tear gas and non-lethal weapons like plastic bullets on protesters, saying that their right to free speech was more important than protecting buildings.
“If a store’s windows must be broken to prevent a protester’s facial bones from being broken or eye being permanently damaged, that is more than a fair trade,” Jackson wrote in his page ruling,” Reuters reported.
“If a building must be graffiti-ed to prevent the suppression of free speech, that is a fair trade. The threat to physical safety and free speech outweighs the threat to property.”
Jackson, it won’t surprise you, is an Obama nominee.
