Civil disobedience is disobedience, isn't it?

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer gave a lot of space in its paper to what appears to be a non-story: law enforcement personnel actually checked to see if "non-violent protestors" may attempt to disrupt things.

Oh, the chilling effect! Their "right to protest" might be limited to lawful means of protest.

"Civil disobedience" is called that for a reason: It's a violation of the law.

So by your logic all people that have used civil disobedience like Reverend Martin Luther King are criminals? You are implying that Reverend King was a criminal? What a "Compassionate Conservative" you are.
