    I'm curious-- the Rutherford Institute didn't mention Sotomayor's full dissent.

    A scathingly sarcastic critique of the decison:

    As you mourn the death of liberty, won't you please remember the hardworking thugs who get no thanks from an uncompliant society?

    I'm mixed by the decision and should definitely be used cautiously. I'm a huge advocator for free speech generally. In some cases I could see people citing many things, laws and such, that are not necessarily true or don't apply in those cases. If free speech interferes with police doing their duty, such as questioning a suspect ( Third person interrupting/using free speech ) or some other related duties, then yes.

    I do see a lot of people arguing with police and not cooperating and if you think they are doing something wrong, that is not always the best time to do it. But submit a complaint at the local police department later.

    I could see bad things either way. If police are afraid of constant lawsuits they may not police efficiently or be used by police in a retaliatory way is bad too.
