Protester = Terrorist

April 3, 2003 2:20 PM

Reuters is reporting that Oregon Senator John Minnis (R) has introduced legislation that would make any person who "plans or participates in an act that is intended, by at least one of its participants, to disrupt" business, transportation, schools, government or free assembly a "terrorist". Penalty for those who protest in the streets and block traffic would include being branded as a terrorist and automatically sentenced to between 25 years and life in prison.
