Reading comprehension is at an all time low in America.
This is why I fear for the future.
Just because you don't like how one faction of the US populace operates, doesn't mean we aren't Americans.
My only concern with large scale protests are how quickly they can get out of hand if certain elements are present. Russia is FULL of those elements.
Some would even say much more than America. Do you really not understand this concern by TPTB in regards to preserving the safety of non-protesters
and community property during such exhibitions?
I'm not saying people don't have the right to protest - I'm worried about the factions that take it to unsafe levels.
Just because there are members of the community that are charged with the duty of protecting public safety doesn't mean they don't support the overall
ideologies of the various groups congregating.
This is about Radical elements - ones who don't care if an innocent protester gets hit by shrapnel from one of their more explosive "anarchist"
statements and the fact that you seem to think such groups don't exist concerns me.
I'm happy your protests are peaceful.
They should be.
They aren't always that way.
