In Support of Public Protest: NYU Edition

New York University Assistant Professor Noah Rosenblum opined on the legality of pro-abortion public protest, using Professor Reid’s 1974 NYU Law Review essay on the legality of the mob (“In a Defensive Rage: The Uses of the Mob, The Justification in Law, and the Coming of the American Revolution”), in early May.

Rosenblum argued that “forms of mass protest that make elites uncomfortable” have a “place in our democracy.” Rosenblum further argued that “loud, angry demonstrations against government officials in the name of vindicating fundamental rights when other avenues of democratic change have been rendered ineffectual is ‘deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition.’”

If American attorneys and law professors can understand this for pro-abortion protests, why can’t they understand it for January 6th?
