Protesting at the RNC

Here are comments from a few DLers about protesters at the convention.

Some responses edited for content.

Spot will add this:

Welcome to the Twin Cities. A lot of people worked hard to provide good protest routes and visibility for you. They didn't get all they wanted, but it's not for lack of trying.

There is plenty to protest, so have at it. Having said that --

Anarchy and nihilism are not progressive values. We support your First Amendment rights, but those rights do not include destruction of property or harm to persons.

Some of us even have friends who are cops, and we don't cotton to the idea of their having to mix it up with you while just trying to do the job they were hired to do.

This is a great town and a great place to live. Please respect that.
