Last week a judge put limits on the St. Louis {P;oce:

U.S. District Judge Catherine Perry’s order says that police can’t declare an “unlawful assembly” and enforce it against those “engaged in expressive activity, unless the persons are acting in concert to pose an imminent threat to use force or violence or to violate a criminal law with force or violence.”

Police also can’t use that unlawful assembly order or threaten the use of chemical agents to punish protesters for exercising their rights, she wrote. (Post-Dispatch)

Based on reactions on social media, the public seems split on her decision. Today’s poll seeks the view of readers.

This poll will close at 8pm tonight.
