There is something wrong when a municipality will not guarantee the right of peaceful assembly on private property and indeed suppressses that right by demanding an outrageous bond…
WHILE NOT DEMANDING A BOND FROM THOSE ORGANIATIONS GATHERED TO PROTEST ON PUBLIC PROPERTY.
If the same logic prevailed, Planned Infanticide would have to pay a the cost of police protection when a vigil was held outside.

Everybody has the right to peaceful assembly on private property so long as the property owner consents. It’s not the government’s place to get involved in these issues.

The private property owner’s consent function was badly warped by the Police demand that it put up the cost of police protection.
Ya think that they would lay that same requirement on Planned Foetuscide?
Of course not, but then the police pre-judged that the Prayer vigil would be non-violent.
By that standard, the anti-abortion people should have indicated that they might be violent. Would that have done it?

The same type of public officials that require local police- State Cops not to report illegal aliens are also the type that select certain causes to defend while requiring upfront money to “protect” others.
The bigotry and intolerance of the extreme left is thus further reinforced by these public governments and agencies.
This is a nationwide occurrence and will not stop until conservative groups threaten political pressure and lawsuits.

Deportation under way in crackdown on illegal immigrant
By TIM HOOVER, The Star’s Jefferson City correspondent
JEFFERSON CITY | The Missouri Highway Patrol’s new policy of checking the immigration status of people who are arrested has resulted in the patrol’s first catch, officials said Thursday.
Jose Guadalupe Delacruz, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was arrested Tuesday by Camden County sheriff’s officials in connection with an alleged assault, the patrol said. The sheriff’s office then contacted the Highway Patrol.
Troopers checked the man’s identity against a federal database and found he was not in the country lawfully, officials said.
They also learned there was a Jackson County warrant for the man’s arrest for allegedly driving after his license had been revoked.
Delacruz is in the Camden County jail awaiting deportation, officials said.
Gov. Matt Blunt on Monday ordered the Highway Patrol, Capitol Police and Missouri Water Patrol to begin checking the residency status of everyone who is “presented for incarceration.”
In this case, though, it was local law enforcement officers who made the arrest, said Lt. John Hotz of the Highway Patrol.
Blunt’s directive calls upon the three state law enforcement entities to enter into an agreement with the federal government that would effectively “deputize” the Missouri agencies to enforce immigration laws.
The arrangement will allow Missouri agencies, primarily the 1,100 troopers in the patrol, to check the immigration status of every person they arrest, and in some cases, merely stop. Troopers check a detainee’s immigration status with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Good news for Missouri citizens.
