LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — An officer who was shot in the head near the Circus Circus casino is on life support at University Medical Center, sources confirmed to KLAS.

The source said the officer was in a fight with a suspect when someone walked up from behind and shot the officer.

I think we can agree that this is a bad thing
 
This is but ONE of the many officers seriously injured or killed in these riots.  Why isn't anyone here discussing that aspect, and what should be done with the culprits and enablers?

Use the proper nomenclature to avoid all this confusing crosstalk about how protestors are stealing stuff. If they do, they’re not protesting; they’re looting. That makes them scofflaws and should be arrested. Protestors, though, are exercising their 1st Amendment rights and should be respected.
 
Obviously wrong (as is the subject) and rather black and white.

Rioting (and all that it might entail) is a form of protest.

Or take graffiti (vandalism)...

There appears to be some effort among the protesters, and not isolated to the fringe, that "non-violent looting" is an acceptable form of protest. The reasoning is something along the lines of black lives built those stores, buildings...we are taking/looting what white people take/loot each day.
The pacifist protest doesnt work...

While the non-violent/pacifist protests made not be done, they are working.
The looting seems more like revenge than protest/progress.

2011 England riots
"Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who's done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice."
Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.

This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

Looting in my city today. Under curfew tonight. This was no protest, simply smashing of glass and theft/vandalism. On Twitter: "the city's full of racist white rich people." We'll ignore the irony of saying that the "white people" are racist.

You tolerate this shit only so far, and then they deserve consequences.

As the GOP would say of the folks trying to cross the border: you just needed to have followed the rules. We're a nation of laws.
 

senseless violence could have a delegitimizing effect

the real people protesting should do their best to prequalify the participants

organize peaceful protest without endangering others

then do your best to get to the negotiations with those that matter (decision makers)

it's a process, so let's get it started
