Some Black Lives Matter protesters in Salt Lake City could face up to life in prison if they’re convicted of splashing red paint and smashing windows during a protest, a potential punishment that stands out among demonstrators arrested around the country and one that critics say doesn’t fit the alleged crime.

What I find "troubling" is the critics of the harsh sentences doesn't know the difference between protesting and mayhem.

Lock those kids up.

Good. If It was my choice they would all be detained indefinitely at Gitmo as enemy combatants.

How about standing them in front of a wall then shooting them? That is about what it is coming down to. The LibTurds definition of a Peaceful Protests these days is synonymous with RIOTS/MAYHEM.

I agree that the punishment doesn't fit the crime. When "protestors" are destroying our cities I say shoot them on site and leave their bodies in the streets to rot and let law abiding citizens step over their rotting corpses to see how their hard earned taxes are protecting them from terrorists.

“We have to have some agreement of what constitutes protected First Amendment speech,” Gill said. “When you cross that threshold, should you be held accountable or not?”

It is already there in the First Amendment: "Peaceable Assembly". Any aggressive act by an individual or groups during the course of a protestor public meeting or assembly, forfeits the First Amendment protections, and therefore leaves you open to arrest and accountability under the law.. You can stand on public land or on the footpath, leaving space in both places for everyone else to proceed about their daily life and yell your speeches, slogans and even insults, to your heart's content.

It's not a life sentence if they still get to breath execute them

Actions should always have consequences, regardless of who you are. Kudos to Utah for actually doing the right thing even though it will get trashed by the media. Now just relieve us of your two sold out turncoat Senators, and you'll be heroes.

Life sentences would be fine with me. Those caught committing such acts are unlikely to become model citizens in the future anyways. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Harvest their organs!
