Why did reps support ‘outlaw' bill?

Posted: Monday, September 24, 2012 12:00 am

I started writing this as a post on Facebook. It concerns the bill variously called the "Outlaw the Occupy Movement," "The Tea Party Ban on Protesting," "The Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Amendment" and HR 347 or S 1794.

It essentially extends the power of the Secret Service to detain, arrest and prosecute demonstrators, which appears to be a clear violation of freedom of speech.
