Their acts of civil disobedience were done as acts that challenged specific laws. They deliberately broke the laws that needed changing.
Exactly. You don't just break any law, it has to be relevant - "well officer, I drove drunk in order to protest JW shunning ...". It just doesn't work.
More importantly, you don't harass individuals unless the people involved and the manner of harassment has some direct link to some law being protested.
AFAIK there simply isn't justification in this case.
Maybe tomorrow I'll stand up against the tyranny of shunning by stealing an XBox from BestBuy ... "join me brothers".
