    It means that laws are to be interpreted objectively, not reread by individuals and are to be applied to everyone without regard for their positions, reputations or personal relationships with others. A government of men, on the other hand, would be one that is subjective, depending on the relationship of those enforcing the laws and those against whom the laws might be enforced.

    Check the laws as approved by the courts. Police are in their right to issue a lawful order, and if the person resists or does not compy, then the police have the right and obligation to the laws of the land to administer enforcement of law. I just don't get where the libs come off with ridiculous things like that. Geeez, they were blocking a public street. They would not have been sprayed if the were in the lawn. PEACEFUL assembly, means LAW ABIDING assembly. Not what ever creative thinking the libs concoct in their brain, utterly void of law.

    "rule of law" in the US in the 21st century is nothing but a bad joke.
