  2. Emily S. says

    What about black people breaking the law during the Jim Crow era (like going into white-only restaurants, or not giving a seat on the bus up to a white man, etc), or, if a law today is passed, a transgendered woman using a female bathroom, and being caught and locked up. Would those be defensible because they were acts of peace? I feel like those laws must be broken to protest them; it’s how media attention and social outrage is garnered. What would be the defense of something like that? And more importantly, would the demonstrator (‘criminal’) go to jail?

    • It’s a moral, but not legal defense. Further, if they didn’t go to jail for it, then it wouldn’t be as effective a tactic. “I believe this is right so strongly that I will accept the punishment in order to draw attention to the problem” is pretty useless if there’s no punishment!

  3. Antistone says

    If you are breaking a law in order to protest it, then you are obviously breaking a law. I’d guess the fact that you’re doing it in protest is purely a moral angle rather than a legal one.
