I'm with the OP. The "In your face" attitude does more harm than good. If you want to O the do it, but don't walk around looking for a confrontation with the police.
If you want to make a comparison with the 1st A then go around the police yelling "FIRE" and see if that improves your 1st A rights.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 *¶Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 *For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
