Why can Ty protest?

By From page A5 | July 11, 2014


Mr. Ty Robben protested in front of the DA’s Office.  I believe District Attorney Vern Pierson said at that time that Mr. Robben had a First Amendment right to protest.

Since then, Mr. Robben was arrested on false charges in Nevada and those charges were dropped.

I’m asking Mr. Pierson to expound on his interpretation of the Constitutional Rights of a citizen to protest so that all citizens will feel safe should we feel the need to protest as Ty Robben did.
