Censorship or Common Sense? Protests Spark First Amendment Debate
It's a fine line and they're walking it. Protesters in Gainesville have rules for their freedom of speech...sparking a First Amendment debate with a lot of gray area.
On Monday, three people protesting biomass outside of Gainesville Regional Utilities headquarters were given trespass warnings. Occupy Gainesville protesters have been jockeying with similar regulations for weeks.
So are these rules censorship or common sense? We asked an expert.
There have been no recent incidents with Occupy Gainesville protesters and police. The three GRU protesters say they are talking to a First Amendment Attorney about their options.
