So because we have the possibility of further riots and lawlessness, we should not prosecute behavior which promotes lawlessness?
Giving this guy a pass is wrong.
I think riots would have happend regardless of the decision or whether or not someone souted encouragement.
But, the fact that there was an angry crowd in place, the behavior has to be considered as encouraging lawlessness and should be properly dealt with.
