people have forgotten how to pick your fights, If I am sitting on my front porch and see an APC turn onto the street I am going to be inside before they finished reorienting themselves.
Yea its your property they have an armored vehicle and group of guys in body armor and bad attitude, let them go past then return to what you were doing.

But the people living there do not seem to be under obligation to stay indoors. My information is they are allowed outside on their premise. And the person filming was standing two feet from their door on the patio.
So again, HOW can this be justified? What law gives these police / swat men the right to act like that?

In this case, they were told to go inside. Now is not the time question but to simply comply for safety. That's it. Minneapolis is a f'n warzone right now.

Matter of fact I have heard of it. Spent plenty of quality time in the ME attempting to implement it to varying degrees of success.
The window for the HnM strategy will open up again. Like I said, it will be an opportunity for the city and residents to succeed or fail.
When there is chaos and destruction, the spectrum has shifted. Immediately re-establishing conditions for recovery are what is needed. Without it, you will never get to a place where HnM will be appropriate or successful.
But if you want to, head out there and show us how it's done in the midst of a riot. You could provide valuable insight to many who have spent careers working the issue. Salute!

Boohoo she got hit by a paintball! They were a group of protesters not listening to police commands, sucks that peaceful protesters are getting thrown in the same lot with the rioters but that seems to be the name of the game right now on both sides.
