I still think it's wrong.

What if someone created a pro-war sign and they were asked to remove it, would you go defend him for have such a sign on his property?

I don't agree with what the KKK does in their demonstrations, or Fred Phelps, but I can't stop them.

That's the thing with law. You might not agree, but it is like it is and you have to accept it.

And yes, everybody has a right to put a pro- or anti-war sign into his garden.

Funny how a while a go when the founder of the minute men went to speak at a college and was interuppted and his freedom of speech was taken away. Some thought the protestors were in the right.

Justin, I don't think you really understand the concept of freedom of speech or what it means for that freedom to be infringed.

Both sides have many people who say they believe in freedom of speech but don't support the actual practice of it.

I know what freedom of speech is, but why can't they tell them that they would like there son or daughters name removed from their agenda?

Both have rights to speak. Those rights went out the window once violence took place.

Honestly that is not the issue, we spoke about this when the thread was going. Please stick to the subject at hand.

No one here said they can't ask for the name being removed.
They can even be upset, anything. No problem.
That's not the point.
The point is that the law is on the side of the initiator of this memorial, and the parents can't force him to remove the name.

Why can't there be a compromise on the "Memorial" For those parents who dont want their son or daugters name set up on a hill they should not put the names and for those who want it then put. Simple as that.
