We are just not going to agree, I can see myself fin their situation being terrified, when it starts going into the level of trespassing against uninvolved people, it has gone too far. You still have to be on the right side of morals, trespassing and taking away a private citizens rights is not justified, especially when the petition was already delivered.Why are you changing the scenario? If hundreds of people crammed into my house, yes, it would be a scary situation.
But that isn't what happened here.
Hundreds of people walked down the street. That isn't something that should affect people this way. The two were acting in a very unstable manner.
Did you see this video in the local news affiliate link?
Clearly, the gate was open and unharmed when these two drew guns on people walking by.
Not like the health of the gate matters.
Yes, you're right that I'm saying the value of protesting for social justice outweighs the technical illegality of trespassing on a street that isn't a public road. I believe laws exist so that we are able to enforce them to reduce harm and improve quality of life--not just to adhere strictly to them by the letter in any and all circumstances. Because the act of walking down a street creates no harm, I would have zero interest in seeing these people prosecuted. That goes for the act of public protest regardless of ideology.
