Somebody needs to say it. Last night, I found myself getting pissed off at the behavior of some of the gutter punks and anarchists. The three fights I saw all stemmed from arrogant and disrepectful behavior from this crowd. They divert the attention from a political message (peace, impeachment, anti-imperialism) to fear message (conflicts, vandalism, stupidity). I for one am going to be much louder about appropiate behavior at demonstrations.
The media, any media does not deserve to be spat on and pushed. You want to chant them down then fine but DO NOT TOUCH THEM!!!! No wonder they have security guards following them. This is idiotic behavior. Get your message out with out looking like a violent asshole more akin to a drunk frat boy or a spoiled brat then a anti-war demonstrator.
The razor blade thing is fucked up. Who ever did that should be beatten. I heard that acid was thrown on a cop, again this person is a danger to himself and others and we need to handle this internally. Find these people and berate them for being an anti-social son of a bitch and call the cops on them. Behavior like this (and the three fights I saw) are dangerous and hurtful.
In the future I urge all sane protesters to SPEAK UP. Do not these sociopathic assholes do dangerous things. SPEAK UP>
