Stoners lose right to 4-20 party in Denver

Goodbye and good riddance to the annual 4-20 pot party in downtown Denver. City and county officials shut it down for at least the next three years, showing authorities throughout the country they need not tolerate mass displays of mayhem wrapped in the First Amendment.

This year’s pot party, as in the past, was a disgrace. Eight food vendors operated without licenses. A mob broke down a fence and laughed about it. Activists parked cars on sidewalks. Grown men urinated on trees. Noise forced nearby offices to close. A cloud of marijuana smoke wafted through downtown for all to inhale.

“We have courtrooms that can’t even work because you can’t hear the parties,” said Denver District Court administrator Kelly Boe, as quoted in the Washington Times.

That was Thursday, April 20. When the sun rose Friday, Civic Center Park looked like a landfill. Bottles, cans, food, paper and other debris were strewn for acres.

City and county officials decided they’d had enough.

“When you hold events at one of these spaces, we all have the responsibility to uphold the public trust, and when you leave one of our parks trashed, you violate that trust,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said after announcing his disgust with the gathering.

“When I look out that office at the 4/20 event, any year, and I see the plume. that bothers me. Because at the end of the day, the city must be seen as the guardians of our treasured spaces, but also the law. We don’t want to put our officers in an unsafe situation, we don’t want to put our citizens. in an unsafe situation.”

Pot party organizers plan to appeal. Defenders of the assembly have long argued the First Amendment protects it from permits and permit fees that are charged to commercial and entertainment celebrations, such as Taste of Colorado.

Event organizer Miguel Lopez told the Denver Post in 2013 that his party is a political protest, and therefore protected from government interference. Oh, really?

We hear the same song and dance all over the country, as increasingly uncivil protesters break windows, damage cars and litter landscapes with trash for someone else to pick up.

Whether protesting President Donald Trump, global warming, cops, speakers on campus or the Standing Rock reservation pipeline, political rallies have made headlines of late for trashing the environment.

With rights come responsibilities. Responsible Americans have protected the freedom to assemble by mitigating negative effects of crowds. When a massive group gathered to celebrate “Americas heroes and heritage” at the 2010 Restoring Honor rally in Washington, participants made news for leaving the National Mall cleaner than they found it.

As 4-20 protesters fight for their right to party, asserting the freedom to assemble without interference, a judge should remind them what the First Amendment says. It expressly protects the right to “peaceably” assemble.

When groups destroy property and trash public space, they violate the law. They dishonor the tenets and restrictions of free speech. Protesters, regardless of cause, are required to respect and maintain the peace. When they do not, they jeopardize their rights.

The stupidity of liberals, ability to ignore their ignorance

you can't even agree with forum republicons... they still try to argue

they trashed the place.. they got a punishment. if they do it again, cancel the event. same as pcb did with spring-breakers. same as gulf sh-ores did with spring-breakers... if they trash the place after being warned the consequences, send them packing. simple. plain. easy. no 'what ifs'. no 'might be'. action/ consequence.

Sounds like the typical left wing demonstration in DC. Same piles of trash, left by trash, I see. 

The march of "The perpetually pizzed and on the  *** hags"? They had children with them, and defecated and urininated in the streets, not to mention their nasty mouths, signs and outfits. Filthy bunch of skanks.

Sounds good.  You even get a "like" for your optimism.  But I think they're going to have related problems before even 3 years is up and its going to have a lot to do with unlicensed "vendors."

Why?

Here's Gulf Sh*res

There is a correlation.

Since we agree on the mayor putting them on 3 years probation, what do you think should be the proper response from citizens if the moratorium is violated?

 The city should capitalize on it. Charge admission, closely monitor for law breakers and provide receptacles for the trash to be disposed of properly. Similar things happen in city's all across the country. Memphis does it on a regular basis.

And memfo has proven on a regular basic a herd of drunk, drug
induced out of control bums are going to do whatever they want
without concern for what they want,, bar none. Why would a town
want to throw a party for that type..?? 

Hold it in the southwest, next to a nice deep arroyo. No minors allowed.  Police will only patrol the perimeter.  After the time, drugs and water run out the partiers may depart.  A contractor will remove the garbage.  Buzzards will clean out the arroyo.  Call it a Tibetan sky burial.

“As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing,” Melania Trump said in a statement. “When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.

The mental health is that of a liberal, but it's OK for those
people when you see snowflakes, mudflakes, pink hats,
dems, stoners, losers and dim wits acting just as corrupt
if not more than griffin. Liberal way of life rather they
admit it or not.

That's the mentality of the demoslops. Nasty, blood thirsty, hateful, jealous, petty, small minded, etc. This old hag has based her "comedy" on being jealous and catty, and making fun of, and running down, anyone better liked, better looking, more popular, than her, which is everyone. Even liberals make fun of her. You can't get much worse than that!

you can and do get worse.. when you and your ilk support posts that call for 'liberal genocide'... republicon hypocrisy... it's the only thing they know.

the hypocrisy of the right is astounding! as long as it OBAMA! we don't care if you hang him from a tree... but trump, now that's a new ballgame.

let me be perfectly clear... i do NOT condone ANY of the pictures that portray any president as dead or less than human, but to see the rt. wingnuts have a meltdown over griffin's picture is hypocrisy at its finest.

None of those pictures should have been shown. I looked and listened to the right fringe idiots posting such as that about Obama and there was zero outrage from the right. now, one Trump picture comes out and all of you have got your panties in a wad. All I can tell you is to put on your big guy drawers and deal with it. Quit crying.

Show pictures of some "celebrity" or someone that worked for a major news outlet holding obama's bloody head. Or anyone else. Name one "celebrity" that has a right wing show saying the obamas should be dragged out of their houses and the houses burned like rosie o'pig said about the Bushs. Name one that called for obama's death like madonna did with Trump. When pictures of Bush were posted showing him being hanged, burned, decapitated by guillotine, his head on a spike and such, there was zero outrage from the likes of you. You nasty slops are so comfortable being the most low down pieces of crap there is and saying and doing whatever pops into your lame brains, you've all gone bat s*** crazy. So maybe it's you that should put on their big girl panties and stfu. You hypocrite.

Best, look at the pictures that Crash posted. Did you fuss about the Obama photos?

I told you before, but you can't hold a thought in your head for more than a few minutes, I don't read crash. I asked YOU to name one celebrity that held up a severed obama head, or anyone for that did it for that matter, and made threats like madonna and rosie did. I asked YOU to show any proof you had, and you have none. The Bush twins were depicted on TV comedy shows nude, drunk and running wild. No outrage from you slops. You yukked it up. That little nasty obama daughter was in public twerking and smoking dope, and it wasn't depicted on TV and no one said anything about it, especially you slops. So again, it's you that needs to put on his big girl panties and stop being such a hypocrite. You slops have gone crazy and think you are entitled to say or do anything you feel like doing. Must be a real shock for you bullies to get a bit of push back.

Those barry pics were the same as the ones of W Bush and about
100 of other various people you had to look for or stumbled over, the
big different in the Trump video is it's a big production aimed at
a national audience while excessively graphic with intent to damage.

 

i'd ignore me too if i was as ignorant as best.. she's blinded by her hatred of liberals and just can't stand the thought of being a hypocrite.. everything she says is to belittle or demean any liberal she can find.. she never answers a question unless she asks another question.. i can remember a time she messaged me asking who people were on the forums, in real life. my answer to her was, who are you? .. if you want me to tell you who they are, i'm gonna have to know who you are.. .that was when she put me on 'block'. ha! i hope she denies that, because i still have the message she sent.
