The writer of the June 9 letter “Mob wars” understands neither the “Moral Monday” protests nor the U.S. Constitution. The writer claims that these legal, peaceful protesters “should be jailed as the anarchists they are, with much heavier penalties than they have been given so far.”
In contrast, he notes that he “will work within the framework of our Constitution to make (his) voice heard”. Apparently he didn’t read the part of the Constitution about “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” He can find it in the Bill of Rights, in the First Amendment.
