It’s A Criminal Offense To “Picket Or Protest” Outside Of A Judge’s Home, Abortionists: 18 USC 1507

But….only if you are a traditional American will you be prosecuted. If you are a Left wing psychopath, you can do whatever you please in this 3rd world nation.


Some obstruction charges have the potential to clash with a defendant’s rights under the First Amendment. Section 1507 of the federal code limits a party’s right to picket or parade. While this speech is generally protected by the First Amendment, this statute outlaws certain pickets or demonstrations that are designed to obstruction justice.

Under this statute, obstruction of justice means interfering, impeding, or attempting to influence court officials, witnesses, jurors, or judges in the course of discharging their duty in the justice system. While threats of violence are not required to build a case under this statute, there must be some form of undue influence.

The statute spells out a number of ways that you could face obstruction charges under this section. Demonstrating outside or inside a federal courthouse with the intent to interfere with a judicial proceeding can qualify. The same is true for the use of trucks with large loudspeakers. These demonstrations can also occur outside of the business or residence of any of the people protected by statute.

The critical part of these cases is intent. Merely demonstrating in a criminal case is protected by the Constitution. But demonstrating with a message that is clearly trying to scare or intimidate someone involved in the process could be a crime.
