    Each an everyone of those looks like a meth addict. Did some disgusting org group together and exploit these people (ie, pay them for their violent demos)? The similarity between these people are too uncanny for it to be a 100% coincidence.

    George Soros just funded a new "movement" that these 25 people belong To: HGLM or Human Garbage Lives Matter.

    These people look broken. It's sad what they've been convinced.

    Crap is easy to replace. Why attack the homeless?

    I like mobs, at least when I'm part of them. (futurama reference, although I can't find the clip)

    The clip was from the third episode. I think I have that entire series memorized. I like how the movie theater had a countably infinite number of screens.

    Leela: Fry you're Bender's best friend. How could you let that mob kick him out?

    Fry: Bender loves mobs.

    Leela: Only when he's in them.

    Nobody should turn a protest into a violent mob, nobody should attack the police if they want to use the public streets to express an opinion, and the more we inject violence into how we speak about the future of the US, the more dangerous things become. The is plenty to protest about without the need for violence, and I think we have to deal strongly with extremists at all ends of the political spectrum(s). That being said, it takes two to tango, so I want to know what the policing were doing before the violence broke out.

    Bunch of losers. Completely useless members of society. Their parents ought to be proud of raising such pieces of garbage.

    I think he is the guy who said George Soros paid him to protest. @jkcerda

    Very good question. a friend of mine from kindergarten is aLEO up in Olympia. her force made the news between there and Portland, trying to protect the homeless from the anarchists attacking them.

    Too right:

    The police were doing their job.
    These snot nosed brats incited the violence. When you come wearing body armor and masks while carrying weapons, you are not a protestor, you are a rioter.
    I miss the good old days when protestors showed up with signs and chanted slogan.
    Now they show up with weapons (sticks, bats, improvised explosives, etc.) instead of signs.
    These are not people demonstrating or expressing their first amendment rights, these are rioters.

    Seattle was pretty tame this year. Seemed the "news" people were the ones trying to get things started with their cameras in everyone's face. Hell even Trump supporters and the antifas/black bloc had a peace joint together.

    It was Olympia that confused me. The homeless and the antifas/black bloc fighting. I don't understand that one but I bet it would have been great to watch.

    We've had some bad years recently, but this year wasn't so bad. I was expecting it to be terrible because Kshama Sawant (the Socialist in the Seattle City Council) was trying to get people to disrupt the freeways and airports. It seems dangerous and irresponsible for a city leader to be suggesting that. Thankfully nobody listened to her.

    I have a colleague who studied crowd control with a European police force. What they found was surprising: the behaviour of the police, not protesters, best predicts whether violence ensues. It's not that the police want the violence, it's that when they form separate police lines, the event shifts from one of protest to one of a confrontation of 'us versus them'. I get that some of the people who went to this protest were probably spoiling for a fight, but even most difficult people can be managed if it is done properly.
