    IMO blocking interstates isn't protests it is borderline terrorism in the problems it can cause.

    If I was a terrorist or someone wanting to damage the American economy one of the first things I would target would be the roadways and interstates while you were laughing out loud but not getting any food in your grocery store.

    You're right. Here's to hoping we get stuck in traffic from these great American citizens during a medical emergency and get to watch a family member die in our car.

    You've probably got a bigger chance of getting killed by an asteroid. Better go buy some asteroid insurance.

    One man beat the odds and is now dead. Talk to his family about chances.

    My guess would be the right to not be falsely imprisoned.

    http://injury.findlaw.com/torts-and-...risonment.html

    In fact, any person who intentionally restricts another's freedom of movement without their consent (and without legal justification) may be liable for false imprisonment, which is both a crime and a civil wrong. It can occur in a room, on the streets, or even in a moving vehicle—just as long as the subject is unable to move freely, against his or her will.
    Similarly, "false arrest" is when someone arrests another individual without the legal authority to do so, which becomes false imprisonment the moment he or she is taken into custody.

    Maybe right now. But if we allow interstate protests to become the norm the chances increase drastically.

    I would say the IX Amendment.
    But, by all means, please do go protest on an interstate. Preferably in the dark stretch of interstate in the wee hours of the morning. Let us know how that works out.

    You snowflakes are right. Impeding traffic has no place in protests. Someone impedes traffic , they should be shot. Just like they probably did to tank man.

    Because the two scenarios are EXACTLY alike.
