"Protesters are a nearly random group, assembled by the likes of posters and facebook, who come together in a thoroughly constitutional gathering" - I'm pretty sure I wouldn't call the violent gatherings I saw "constitutional". Undustrial you're pretty naive if that's how you think all protests are organized.

A constitutional gathering becomes anything but when people in said gathering start committing vandalism not matter what the cause is. Protests of that sort are counter productive at best.

As for the police being trained and paid professionals, I completely agree. And I would have been quite angry if they hadn't reacted in some way to the situation. Perhaps you would have preferred they stood around?
