16. I see.
I can understand that. I guess this would be analogous to banging on a black family's front door and telling them "Me and my white supremacist buddies are I'm going to beat the crap out of you if you get uppity." Seems to make sense. Harrassment isn't a constitutional right.

I guess the question is where the line is drawn. Would it be intimidation to burn a cross on your own property if the intent is to intimidate the black family across the street? I suspect so.
