ACLU files lawsuit on behalf of banner-displaying K-State students

The American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas has filed a lawsuit on behalf of three Kansas State University students who were detained and banned from the Statehouse after displaying massive banners in a protest last month.The lawsuit contends Statehouse authorities imposed impermissible restraint on political expression protected by the First Amendment by detaining the students and telling them they couldn't return for a year.

The ACLU is probably right that the legislature can't ban specific protesters for a year. What the state should have done is put them in jail for a year and tell them they can protest there to their hearts' content.

5:00pm. How about a year in jail for TKC commenters who protest the protesters first amendment rights.
