No leading more towards maybe depending upon circumstance. I believe the better method is shown by the local police joining with the protestors, walking in unity forward toward true solutions. Yes, I am an optimist, but by joining with the protestors the police are saying 1. We hear you, 2. We want change, 3. Let’s work together; and by becoming familiar with the peaceful protestors, they will be better able to separate the honest protestors from the imitation protestors who are doing most of the damage. The opportunistic people using these peaceful protest to rob stores is depressing, it lowers my already low opinion of humans.
