These people need to understand they're in a city on high alert. The police are nervous and more concerned about controlling the crowd than making
sure everyone can join in. "
look, you have to understnad, the protesters were absoloutly complacent, i was there. there were cops everywhere, there were 500,000 protesters, if
the huge majority of the crowd wasn't complacent there would be something called a riot. there were a very limited number of events of violence on
both sides, you cant blame the actions of a few on the many. at a huge unregulated right wing rally you're goign to see ayrans and/or klan members
walking around, at a liberal rally you're going to see anarchists and communists. these people who went are living democracy, there's always a
violent radical sect - you just cant blame everyone. it's just ignorant.
