The "Boston Massacre" as it is called, was not a massacre in the sense that many were slaughtered, it was more like a provocative anti-authoritarian protest, highly publicized for the brutal governmental response. This incident marked the beginning of the end for the unjust empire of the day. For the early American "rowdies", it was a milestone on their road to independence.
In a very similar situation, the enlightened "rowdies" of our time, free from the brainwashing of a government friendly mainstream media, are challenging what has become the unjust American empire of today.
