You may have noticed that there’s been a little bit of a drop off in folks coming out for the riots, particularly in Portland.

Now part of that may be in part because of a bunch of these folks getting arrested. Some of those arrested have also been banned from protesting in order to be released. That may be a constitutional question to be litigated at a later point, but right now, it may be contributing to a drop in numbers.

So now we’re hearing a plea to stop posting pictures and stop sharing videos of people at riots. Why? Because police are using them to help track down the poor children and you are “threatening their lives.”

This may be the funniest and best thing I’ve seen today.

So I’m a little confused. I thought they were all “peaceful protests.” So she’s admitting they’re riots? Well, at least she’s honest about that.

If you’re at a riot, you’re a rioter and that’s a crime. What you really want to say is ‘Waaaah, all our guys are getting arrested!’ and that’s putting a crimp in the ability to throw a riot. Boo hoo.

So here’s a revolutionary thought (see what I did there). How about not rioting and breaking the law? So then you don’t have to worry about who is filming you or taking pictures.

But thanks for the video, glad to know that the fact that people are taking videos and pictures and that we are all sharing them is helping to get some of these criminals nailed. Let’s keep it up! It’s working!
