First of all, violence should not be tolerated on either side, and unfortunately this election has brought out the worst on both sides of this election.
It is becoming apparent that the people on one side are not upset cause they lost, they are frightened for the future, and they are lashing out against any who are against them. The other side is emboldened by the rhetoric and think that their actions are acceptable and allowed, cause their candidate won, and that too should not be acceptable or permissible.
But it is clear that both sides are not happy, nor accepting of the results either way it would have went. As a nation, we have lost sight of what all is important, and are severely divided by politics, which should never have been.
On a side note, we are still not sure who won the popular vote. There are too many allegations about votes not being counted or included in the final totals. One site reports it was Trump the other reports it was Clinton. According to snopes so far it looks like Clinton who won the popular vote. However, here is what should be noted, it was by the majority of the states that Trump won, not Clinton.
