The astonishing video shows that the group’s behavior very definitely violated Pennsylvania’s harassment laws and possibly even their assault laws.

Owens said a protestor with a bullhorn screamed into her ear. She described it as being “reminiscent of the civil rights era. This is what you would expect in the civil rights era if a woman was dining at a restaurant. They’ve grown increasingly violent because they are losing. They’re losing a lot of turf.”
