“Whiny” Protesters Don’t Deserve Sympathy

a know….I still can’t get past this. What did these guys expect? They’re police for Christ’s sake! When they arrest you, it’s not like you get treated all nice. They’re not looking out for your comfort. They harden their emotions towards you right from the start and they’re certainly not gonna feel sorry because you didn’t realize what was in store for you….

I think when you deliberately involve yourself in a protest that you know could turn violent, it’s naive at best, and simply stupid at worst to think there aren’t risks. Nobody from the Auto unions or the morning protests (on Saturday) echoed these complaints — because they’d all gone home by the time the real crazy started. And their demonstrations were peaceful and even protected (to some extent) by police.
Should it be this way? Perhaps not in a perfect world, but the police do have a bit of a rough time trying to filter out the law-breaking insurgent element from the supposedly responsible demonstrator mixed up with the former.
