Unlawful assembly charges: Human rights violation or necessary evil?

Asked by: Diqiucun_Cunmin
  • HAHA you cant fight violence with peace its like trying to fight fire with paper.

    Charging a person for protest is a complete violation to a person. You have the right to fight against anything that you don't agree with. The moment you cant you are a soul less slave. Better to live free amongst the chaos than as a slave in a false security bubble.

  • I think it's necessary.

    Let me start by saying that I meant to type Human rights violation (YES) or necessary evil (NO). I can't go back and change that, sorry. :(

    With that aside, I believe unlawful assembly charges are necessary. Although freedom of assembly should be protected, it should not infringe on others' rights to a peaceful and tranquil community. In the case of unauthorised protests, or authorised protests turned ugly (but not yet turned into riots), it is necessary to have a law with which the police can charge the protestors. There may be political prosecutions, but that problem can be avoided with an independent judiciary.
