Freedom Of Speech

 In a 2-4 page paper, double-spaced, discuss the 1st Amendment considerations for the following scenario: a group of friends have been arrested for disorderly conduct at a football game for shouting at passers-by after the game things such as “you guys suck” and “your team is a bunch of inbred hicks.” Also, upon being arrested by police, one shouted something like, “You dumb cops, go back to the donut shop where you belong.” Each is now claiming their speech was protected. You may also want to check and see what the disorderly conduct statute in your state says. Provide your opinion on whether charges should be brought and if they will successful.
