Do you realize how many protests of various sorts are scheduled there every week? It would be nice if the protesters did clean up after themselves but that is not the case. It's a mess after one of these protests and the posters all over the city are just trash after the event. If I lived there I'd want guidelines on the methods used also. And the city has to provide clean-up of the area and also police protection if it is believed there will be anti-protesters.
Also my sister is heavily involved with some causes and conflict is usually part of the plan to gain media coverage, the better to get their message out. This one was very clever, they're able to claim loss of freedom of speech on top of their impeachment call. If ya'll think this wasn't planned in advance.......I just can't say it.
Lol, look at Alex Jones. I used to watch him and his buddies get arrested routinely here in Austin. He loved it. It boosted his message to a larger audience when he was featured on the news here. Back then it was very minor causes that he was promoting. Look where he is now.
