Bad Idea! Harassing Calls to the Supreme Court Because You Disagree with a Decision

In a remarkable news item the Associated Press it is reported that the Indiana Supreme Court is receiving harassing phone calls and emails over a decision it issued last week.  In a 3-2 decision of the Indiana Supreme Court, the court upheld the arrest of Richard L. Barnes who was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct for barring the door to his residence when the police made a warrantless entrance. 

Making harassing phone calls and sending harassing emails to a court is always a bad idea.

  1. Hola. First off,I'm upset I didn't think of the name you have for my own blog first. Muy cool.

    Second, I almost called that court myself to "harass" them, or what used to be known as protected speech under 1A. Actually, I think I'll use the $1.00 I have left of my Skype account to do it today.

    Unless one has a case pending before them, why do you think this is such a bad idea? Obviously, I am not talking about being abusive or threatening - just telling them that they are mornonic whores for crafting this opinion from another planet.

  2. EPEL--

    1. So true.

    2. I agree. But can you think of anything more self-defeating (or dangerous) than to be perceived as harassing Supreme Court security officers because you disagree with a decision of the court?
