While I agree with the no snitching part...
I can't help but wonder if this;
KEEP PEOPLE SAFE FROM PHYSICAL HARM
Will be lost among the destruction.
Time to give it up people, we lost.
Move on and participate in a healthy manner.

Kent state comes to mind here. Maybe they should just start shooting anyone committing a crime such as rioting. See these kids dont know what its actually like to fear death. As long as protest are peaceful no shooting.
That would be a catastrophe. I would be a big mess all over again, just like KEnt state.

The second irony...........they turn on the "press"? Really? The "press" is their ardent ally which provides them the media attention they must surely crave.
This is certainly a conundrum. If they protest and nobody knows, are they any more or less relevant?

"The police need to have a heavier presence up there in Oakland or Portland or wherever in Oregon its happening."
Why? If you don't live in Oregon............why would you even care? And if you check the OP link, its Portland; think about that............you have to be one of the 1% to even be able to rent a hovel in Portland. Who are they hurting? If they're damaging businesses, looting and tieing up traffic..............they're hurting the 1%. I say "go for it"; keep the cops out of it! The cops aren't paid enough to protect the 1%.
It seems to be getting worse in Oregon, 71 people were arrested on Saturday. Rioters attacked a camera crew with a ball bat, last week as well.

I think we have even better chances if we go with with this meme.
"The wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox; and dust will be the serpent's food. They will do no evil or harm in all My holy mountain," says the LORD."
was making reference to how this is becoming much more common,now replace that with a john deer or a state plow and it would be even worse,not saying it should happen but that it probably would
and i sure as hell ain't happy about the drunk part either its gotten so bad in my area i just assume every one around me has a BAC of .10 minimum ,hell we had a school bus drive busted for dui at like 7 am last month
and yeah least in the northern regions its about to start dumping snow so that would probally make a short end to protest season in the north west,east and rust belt
