A Man's Home is His Castle ...

... but is the yard by his apartment also?

Last night I was at a BBQ. We weren't really being loud or anything, but the cops happened to have not enough to do or something, so they were swarming around my (largely African-American) neighborhood.

At some point a cop polls up to where we are having our BBQ, gives a good look (to check for underaged drinking or who knows what) and then tells us to move our dominoes game inside. For various reasons, we didn't make any challenge.

But my question to y'all is: can a cop do that? What about rights to free assembly? And it isn't as if we weren't residents of the complex or guests thereof ...
