Food Fight Could Carry 25 Year Terrorism Sentence In Oregon

Oregon Law Would Jail War Protesters as Terrorists
An Oregon anti-terrorism bill would jail street-blocking protesters for at least 25 years in a thinly veiled effort to discourage anti-war demonstrations, critics say.
Dubbed Senate Bill 742, it identifies a terrorist as a person who “plans or participates in an act that is intended, by at least one of its participants, to disrupt” business, transportation, schools, government, or free assembly.
Luckily, it’s not expected to get anywhere. Still, why is this even being discussed?
