First Amendment rights for Occupy Fresno...? Fuhgedaboudit...

from raw story...

For the third night in a row, protesters with “Occupy Fresno” were arrested for gathering in a public park, apparently in violation of a county ordinance that labeled them trespassers.

At least 20 were arrested over the weekend. Nine more were led away in handcuffs on Monday night.

While they could have moved their demonstration to the sidewalks at night to avoid the arrests, they’ve steadfastly refused, equating that action with forfeiture of their constitutional right to freedom of assembly.

aw, c'mon you police guys... remember where we're living and the rights our precious constitution (supposedly) grants us...
