16. Because they feel the same as me?
Here's something to think about: If you scaled the fence on the White House gardens, and then walked about inside the grounds with a protest sign

(a) What do you think the police or secret service would do?
(b) Do you think you'd be charged with anything?

I suspect the answer to (a) would be "arrest you at gunpoint". I suspect the answer to (b) would be "charge with criminal trespass", at least. The law in Britain has now been changed to allow them to do this. Do you think the law in the USA has been oppressive?
