BOSTON (CBS) – A new law has given the Secret Service the power to forbid protests near any government official should they deem it necessary. Candidates, dignitaries, political events, and elected officials could all be off limits for protestors, with a potential felony charge for anyone who disobeys. Harvey Silverglate, First Amendment advocate, joins NightSide to talk about the new law. Do you think the Secret Service should be able to decide where citizens can and can’t protest?
