1. Watched it. Was very interesting.
Prior to the RNC I had made a comment in a post to a group planning protests in the city of Saint Paul. I suggested that this group invite a cop to their planning sessions. I'm pretty sure I got flamed. All the secrecy is what causes problems. Yes, there will be arrests and such, both police and protesters know this.

I watched the POV show today regarding the arrest and 'convictions' of those involved. I do not believe justice prevailed.

4. I'm not sure.
The process, the entire situation is a result of living in fear, being told to be fearful and the reinforcement of fear. Being in possession of molotov's is no different than being in possession of guns. They were convicted on what they might do, not for what they did.

I have insight into the cop mentality and I have a basic understanding into how they think. To include them is to disarm them.

2. It was very well done
It was a shame that the story didn't have a better ending. I didn't know that Darby is now a conservative radio host in Texas. What a first class jerk.

5. If you missed the show on tues, it'll is repeated
you can see how many people pressured into doing things they normally wouldn't.

In this case they didn't do an crime.. they just had thoughts of it, and those thoughts came from the FBI informant.


It is a great documentary.
