I understand and I do not have enough of an inside perspective of how one side seems to be favored over the other by law.
It is almost impossible to get an impression of the (preceived) bias if you are not an American and confronted with all the shades of grey.
I should maybe not have jumped into this thread with the notion that this incident was unrelated to other comparible events that might paint a clearer
picture but I still find it strange that people will almost rip you a new one and say you support terrorists if you point out that most those people
there aren't Antifa.
The may call themselfs Antifa and dress like them but in fact they are just a bunch pissed of kids whom have seen the movie V a few times too many.
Antifa, as some have pointed out, isn't exactly a weekend occupation. It's a way of life, an idiology. I'm all for arresting these people but I assume
within that protest only a small marging of people is really Antifa and the rest are just people protesting and throwing milkshakes.
Like theantideluvian pointed out earlier in the thread, Portland seems to be the homebase of two groups that make it a pasttime of finding eachother
on occassions and bashing in skulls...you know...hooligans. Not there for an idiology just looking for confrontation.
I understand that prohibiting certain clothing would go directly against your 1st amendment so finding the real revolutionaries is going to be a
problem but rounding up the entire mass so you can filter them after would also seem like a violation of your 1st.
I seems like a problem that is going to need a more subtle sollution.
