    While it reads well, there’s more to the second story than is presented here. All were given the opportunity to leave and were told that remaining on the property would be unlawful, and they chose not to leave.

      Hello Nan. I know property rights are important. However this was an elected office whose office has already been caught lying about Breonna Taylor’s death. In fact this AG tried to sweep the entire thing under the rug as they say. So just like with the other peaceful protests I feel this was a legitimate use of their 1st amendment rights. The people were ordered to be removed by the AG, he did not want them there. But rather than address them and maybe deescalate the situation he sent police to threaten and arrest them. The idea of these kinds of jail sentences are attempts to intimidate and totally uncalled for in peace non damaging protesting. If being annoying was enough to get 1-5 years in prison then most of the people in this country would be doing time.

      However look at the post again. The first armed group was on the porch. They were beating on the glass of the windows. They were deliberately menencing and trying to intimidate the governor and every one in the house. Yet no arrests. But peaceful people sitting on a lawn got arrested. I think the point was clear, the first group was armed Roublicans, the second group unarmed mostly Democrats. Hugs

        Oh I’m not arguing the “politics” behind these two incidents. I just wanted to point our why the second group ended up being arrested (according to the article).

    And, let us not forget those who entered the legislative building in Michigan. With guns.

      Hello Keith. Yes. I am interested in your perspective on this? Keith you have been on both sides of the political divide, maybe on the sliding scale, so what is your opinion on if the Republican party as what it use to be back possibly to Reagan can recover, or do those who want to be known for certain political / fiscal things need to form a new party. My view is the name Republican now is tainted beyond repair, Hugs
