This is beyond ridiculous. Also the "file a complaint" idea that the courts are spouting is stupid, a protest would lose momentum if it went away to file a complaint, as opposed to just disobeying the orders of the police officer.
Its like they think that all police officers are the gods of law, and every order that has ever come out of their mouths is 100% fair and legal. What has annoyed me the most is that this delusion has spread from the courts and into the general populace, i am constantly running into people who tell me how naughty those protesters where for disobeying orders, and how they deserved to be pepper sprayed. It is even more horrible when i hear people in the Main Stream Media spout similar sounding tripe.
