Picketing Military Funerals

Dr. Jerry Pournelle at Chaos Manor gets mail. I'm struck by one that showed up a couple of weeks ago:
Picketing at a marines funeral

Clearly a Constitutionally allowed picket. But I would be privileged to contribute to the disorderly conduct fines of the Veterans who beat the hell out of them.

One of the points that most of the news stories don't mention is that the protesters asked police where they could hold their protest, they obeyed the police, and the funeral procession was rerouted so that the family and friends NEVER SAW THE PROTEST UNTIL THEY HEARD ABOUT IT ON TV. That makes all the difference to me.
