During the G8 summit in Scotland there were news reports showing anarchists “protesting”. Shrouded in black outfits with black hoods and masks, they attacked police and committed vandalism.
The same thing just happened in San Francisco. Sending a policeman to the hospital and vandalizing business–corporate monoliths and mom and pop shops alike. There is now a reward for the “protestor” who hit the policeman, but there is little hope of discoveriing his/her identity, as they too were shrouded and masked in black.
My question is, although I support anyone’s right to protest, even these people who I do not understand at all, I do not support their right to create havoc and do it anonymously.
Shold any protest group who is masked and moving toward violence be tolerated? Or arrested immediatley enmasse?
I vote for locking the cowards up.
