Can you define "unlawful assembly" without going to the law books?

Specifically in California. Because LAPD just issued a warning to their protesting crowd tonight.

It’s a group that gathers together without a permit in a public space.

An assembly of people that disrupts traffic or private business or interferes with law enforcement or emergency personnel.

Any assembly that requires a permit and does not have it.

Mobs, riots. Isn’t that it?

We’re talking about pubic space after all. It belongs to everyone.

@fundevogel No, that’s not it. Government can require permits for any kind of public assembly, it doesn’t have to be a riot or mob.

Pooh, sounds like a riot act to me.
