Doing It Right

There are many reasons why San Diego is a great place to live and I cannot think, offhand, of much in the way of anything that would be a valid reason not to live here. We could , of course, use a better football team, but... Anyway, once in a while something happens that reminds me that this town does live up to its slogan, which is "America's Finest City."

Protesters closed northbound I-5 this morning, voicing their opposition to recent events in Ferguson. It caused massive backups, of course, and the CHP finally managed to disband the protest but there were no arrests and no one even got a ticket. San Diego law enforcement understands the constitutional right of the people to peacefully assemble.

Peacefully assemble on a freeway? Peacefully obstructing traffic and creating a safety hazard? Well, they did disperse peacefully. No one was hurt or cited or property destruction or anything. That's better than in some areas of the country, especially Ferguson.

I did not see anyone throwing a "cocktail" at a police car in SD or anywhere else (yet). Peaceful protest and assembly is an important right. As far as the cocktail tossers in Ferguson. They should have had their ticket cancelled. Of course then that would be the fault of the authorities........
