Governor, here is the law:


§ 14-288.5. Failure to disperse when commanded a misdemeanor; prima facie evidence.

(a) Any law-enforcement officer or public official responsible for keeping the peace may issue a command to disperse in accordance with this section if he reasonably believes that a riot, or disorderly conduct by an assemblage of three or more persons, is occurring. The command to disperse shall be given in a manner reasonably calculated to be communicated to the assemblage.

(b) Any person who fails to comply with a lawful command to disperse is guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor.

(c) If any person remains at the scene of any riot, or disorderly conduct by an assemblage of three or more persons, following a command to disperse and after a reasonable time for dispersal has elapsed, it is prima facie evidence that the person so remaining is willfully engaging in the riot or disorderly conduct, as the case may be. (1969, c. 869, s. 1; 1993, c. 539, s. 190; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)


Under North Carolina law, your law enforcement personnel have the authority to order even so-called "peaceful" demonstrators to disperse when a riot is going on. All "peaceful" protesters should be ordered dispersed and a curfew imposed until the rioters are arrested. If a store is being looted and the "protester" does not disperse as instructed by the police, he is presumed to be a rioter under your state's laws.

Irrational Illiberal World

The world is anti-Western, anti-American, anti-white, and anti-male.

The World is Burning and ARI is AWOL

Its a joke at this point. BLM is a terrorist organization. Larry Auster called black violence in America the "black Intifada". Think how right he was. The left is generating a race war and of course Hollywood is in on it as they release more slavery-porn (the movie "The Birth of a Nation" which very well may trigger more race riots). And OrgOism never comments and if it does it does so with the sterile language of "collectivism". Even worse, OrgOists talk as if the only concern with racism is anti-black racism on the part of whites. Jesus Christ.

If Trump loses, I fear for this country. And if he wins there will surely be more race riots as the Left will push for them.

White Elephants

Anti-White racism is world wide. It's getting much worse, very fast. Of course, ARI ignores the issue because they live in the cultural left. I'm wondering when ARI will merge with the Frankfurt School. Think of the academic "respectability" that would generate!

Neil -- No-one wants to discuss race. Black racism was a massive issue during the period of Ayn Rand's strongest intellectual activism, from about 1962 to 1977. Rand virtually never mentioned it.

As usual the OrgOist world is silent. Objectivists don't want to discuss race and crime.

The lights are going out in NY, or Charlotte...

The law is rather precise and simple to understand. But it won't be followed because the "protesters" are non-whites, specifically blacks, and they are considered "oppressed" by white Conservatives who the Left considers innately evil. So no matter how thorough a law is written (ie "Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech...) it will not be followed because the dominant, and unwritten, law of the day is egalitarianism, specifically racial egalitarianism (and gender egalitarianism as well).

Now Rand understood this and featured this as part of 'Atlas Shrugged' to an extent. What she couldn't see was the way it would be applied; ie racial and gender egalitarianism aimed at white non-leftist males in an attempt to demonize them as a prelude to (possibly) exterminate them (through various means but mostly demographics). And it is one of OrgOism's greatest failures that it has not used Rand's powerful philosophic toolkit, continued her legacy of intellectual / cultural *warfare* against the Left (what was 'Atlas Shrugged'?) and opposed this evil. But they have not. In fact they show no awareness of the race war that is escalating underneath their noses.

Their biggest concern? Trump's "fascism" or his anti-free-trade policies, which I should add they don't even have the economic chops to at least understand where he's coming from and why he's responding to something that is actually legitimate. The Austrians on the other hand do.
