    I came late to the diary but I am asking myself the exact same question, naively I kept thinking "some of these guys (most?) actually wanted to be police to 'protect' people" how do they come in and do this?

    That was the other thing I noticed, they are all "guys" in the picture - - I see quite a few women officers in my rural town, where are the women? Do they not "go along" with this "tough guy" authority as well as the jack booted guys that they assign this duty?

    Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick: The "party of Jesus" wouldn't invite him to their convention - fearing his "platform."

      (from my limited observation) to absolutely go along. Some of the Singers have made friends with the CapPo (as they call them) and have many conversations. As with all human interactions, the mix is complex and nuanced. These "deep ecology" gets stripped down to "cold calculus" when the CapPo are deciding to be Enforcers. The very history of decency works against the protestors, because they - the ones the Police know- are, by definition, the "leaders."

        Thank you, for the diary and your actions there is Madison. I live in WA and there is a deep sense of the old proverb "there, but for, the grace of God. . . " (though I am not very religious, still a good analogy) I hope that others learn from your faith in humanity and your efforts.
