When folks stand outside of someone's house with assault weapons and threaten murder and rape of another human being, that is harassment, a violation of Ohio law. Look at these pictures and tell me you would not find them threatening:
Obviously, the police aren't arresting these thugs, but the news media is covering these thugs in a positive light. Even worse, they are defending the actions of these "open carry" punks with Anonymous masks. (Anonymous is already a pathetic joke, and at times, a hypocrite). But my simple comment on the ABC News site got me permanently banned from posting comments:
Protesters Gather Outside Brock Turner's Family Home in Ohio

These "protesters" are engaging in criminal activity. They aren't protesting but harassing in violation of the law.
It is interesting this comment was removed, but there are some far more derogatory comments that remain:

Why is it wrong? His neighbors are sending him a message that rapists who didn't pay for their crimes are not welcomed there. Would you rather they anonymously throw bricks through the windows instead?

Welcome home Brock, You make your Mom, and Dad proud. Your neighbors will be happy to see you around. Some will want to take you hunting. You should go with them.

Ok ... I wouldn't hang out drinking with Brock if I were you ... Might end up with his finger up your butt one night

All these comments in support of the rapist is unbelievable. I haven't followed this story, but this guy has to be white. Must be.

They can make his life miserable, which is what he deserves.

Hound him. That is the right thing to do since the judge did not do the right thing.
I get it, some folks are unhappy Brock Turner got such a "light sentence." Life on the registry IS a life sentence, however. Having a bunch of gun nuts wearing Gay Fawkes masks at your doorstep doesn't help matters. Having the media endorse and support these thugs is worse.
ADDENDUM: I was on the Dr Drew show last night discussing this case, and I got my opportunity to publicly condemn these vigilante scumbags. (PS: It seems I caught 300+ pound liar Shaun Webb in yet another lie, as he claimed he personally made sure I'd never be on the show again. LOL):
