I am currently obtaining my Bachelor's in Criminal Justice. While in class this morning it hit me, I know what I would like to accomplish. I would like to change a Law. One that has been to the Supreme Court before. I would like to challenge one part of the 1st Amendment. Why would I do such a thing? I strongly believe that under no circumstance should any type of funeral be protested. Whether it be a Civilians or Military members funeral. I believe it should be illegal to protest at funerals period. The Law states as long as "fighting words" are not used, then it is perfectly legal. IMO, that can be taken in multiple different ways. If one of my family members were to pass, and while at the funeral there were protesters; I would go bat shit crazy on them. This is aimed at one particular "organization". One day, someone will lose their cool and then what? To save a lot of trouble they just need to make protesting at funerals illegal. Yeah, yeah it "takes away" their freedom of speech, well they can go spew all that BS on the streets, not at a funeral.
I hope this all made sense. I am still looking into legalalities and past cases in relation to freedom of speech. I do not plan to do anything at the moment. I do however feel strongly about this. Who knows, maybe I can make a change. How would you feel about something like this taking place? (the banning of protesting at funerals)
