It also doesn't me we can't.
Your problem, and it may be because you've never left the house, is that you're trying to deal in absolutes. Pure black and white. That world doesn't exist. I thought we were making some progress when you admitted that legal documents are open to interpretation but you've fallen back to legal/illegal. No grays. No blurry lines. The world is a gray, blurry line. Accept that and you'll feel better.
And quit with "I KNOW MY RIGHTS!!!!" That means nothing when the governing body that GAVE you those rights decides to take them away. If you don't think that can happen, see how close you can get to protest the Prez. Or just ask your OWS buddies who spent the night in jail when they refused to disperse.
