if 'Anthony' is seeing more and more of this lately, he needs to hang out in different places

Not protest related I don't think, but still seems relevant:

The fact that you think that's relevant to this thread is very revealing.

I'm mostly just struck by the normalcy of it. No one is concerned. They're practically bored by it at this point. It's just Thursday. Time to go harass drivers. Time to go shoot at protestors. Ngo gets his video. Just going through the motions.

Happy to repeat my post on the topic of fringe/mainstream!

Interesting you responded to that post and not this one!

So leaving aside the fact that the young girl's shooting is no longer being associated with the protests (I checked multiple local news websites and not a single one describes the armed men as "protestors,--of course this could change as more evidence comes out but for now it seems best to move on from this specific example), you might be interested to know that a recent study about the protests estimated that there have been at least 4700 different events in which, collectively, 15 to 26 million people participated.

The link is here.

Just for those of us keeping score at home, that would mean you'd need 50 discrete instances of violence on innocent bystanders to even get a 1% figure, if we're judging each event as its own instance. But given how large and heterogeneous these protests are, it would probably make more sense, or it would be more persuasive, to argue based on total number of violent actors/radicals relative to overall group size in order to show that there really is a threat, either to bystanders or certain cherished ideals. So your magic number there would be anywhere from 150000 to 260000.

Protestors need to find some real purpose in their life

I'm sure this will get better when the temporary layoffs become permanent and the mass evictions start.

2009 was a historically competitive year for grad school admissions across the board but they're certainly welcome to try.
