Is she trespassing or something?

If not then she has every right to protest. I think she is an idiot, but she has the right to be an idiot.

I would say yes. You can't set up shop on a public roadside and do whatever the fuck you want.

How is it Criminal Mischief when Sheehan and her fellow squatters are treaspassing and erecting the crosses on property that doesn't belong to them?
Link Posted: 8/16/2005 11:04:37 AM EDT
She's on public land (side of road and easement).
City may evict her, but a neighbor is offering to let her use his property to continue her Jihad.

You might think different if you had a bunch of liberals parked on the side of the road in front of your house.

I believe in Texas, there is a law against putting up those crosses.

People like to put them where fatal accidents have occured, and they are becoming distractions so they "banned" it.

She may technicallly be breaking the law, and he could have been trying to rake them all up and clean up the roadside.

It is not a church nor a burial ground so it doesn't count. That's for established places such as a church, synogouge, temple, or mosque or any place that someone has actually been buried. Protestors signs don't count.

Then that idiot needs to step up and get her off of public property, and also show him/herself out to be a liberal fuck to the Texas neighbors!
