    I know what I think about these "protests."  They are not protests at all but a scam perpetrated by skilled grifters.  Their intention is to provoke somebody into throwing a punch or even touching them.  They videotape everything, and use the taped evidence as grounds to file lawsuits against people and cities for not "protecting" their free speech rights.  They are all lawyers, and the old man is a former civil rights lawyer who was disbarred for unethical and illegal conduct.

    It just so happened that in Brandon, MS, one of them ran their mouth out of range of a video camera, and thus had no way to sue anyone.  Protest my ass.  They are running a scam based on their knowledge of the legal system, and seem to be making a pretty good living at it.
