Thumbs Down to Supreme Court Military Funeral Protest Ruling

The supreme Court Ruled that it is permissible for organizations to Accost, ridicule, harass, disturb and disrespect the funeral services of our fallen Service People.

While I respect “real” rights as spelled out in our Bill of Rights, I do understand that our rights, every one of them, comes with a measure of responsibility that must be observed.

For instance, is it permissible for citizens to carry guns in schools? Is it permissible to walk into courthouses and loudly protest the judges who are in court? The answer to both of these is a resounding no!

While in the first example, the anti-gun legislations in school zones are actual infringements on constitutional rights, the latter disruptive behaviors are contrary to civilized order and the judge would have the protesters rightfully removed! Why is a fallen service person any less deserving of civil order and a measure of dignified respect?

I suspect the supreme court had a time trying to draft justifications for their ruling on this matter.

What the hell is this country coming to?
