Nazis at St. Patrick's Day Parade

Dan Kennedy acknowledges the cops had a tough job on the Common, but wonders if they might have taken some liberties with the 1st Amendment, by, for example, banning the press from the bandstand:

Let’s not kid ourselves. There was real potential for violence far beyond the skirmishes that actually took place. The Boston Police did a good job of protecting public safety. But free speech took a back seat on Saturday, and I imagine we’re going to be hearing more about that in the days to come.
