58. The problem is the vast majority of people who are getting the shaft are peaceful.
I don't know if you have been to many protests before, but anyone who has will tell you that they are not the violent events our media portrays them have. There was very little violence at the RNC protests, no one was injured, and aside from a couple broken windows (which were very likely broken by agent provocteurs) the city of St. Paul remained intact. Yet the media kept covering how violent the protests were despite the fact that the protesters were very peaceful, the police on the other hand were not so peaceful.
