29. That's so unlike what's been happening for the past two weeks that I wondered
if the crowd had been seeded with some agitators. Most of the crowd is chanting, "Shame, shame!" while a handful of voices sound close to unhinged and you can hear a few people calling out, "Don't touch him!". The marshals and Rep. Hulsey are able to cool the temperature surprisingly quickly, though. It doesn't seem to take that long to go from "Shame, shame" to "peace, peace" and then to "peaceful protest", which makes it seem less like an incensed mob and more like a group of protesters containing a few troublemakers.
