The city likes to send extra police out in to the street during the protest.

The broke up many centers of the protest.

The protesters should reform and grow there protest to multiple sites within the same city.

For example 3 strategically located protest centers creates up to 3 times the strain on any state force sent to silence.

When everything is centered into one heart it is easier to kill, than when you need to strike three hearts.

This movement seems big enough to make such a move to have multiple centers in New York City to help grow the protest and aid in the defense to silence.

no one said destroy any property, if the city wants to expend all of its resources to silence its own people who are being peaceful, then that just highlights how they are wasteful with resources and again not listening to its people.

i just think its sad that cities send out armored guards everywhere, when the public never really ask for this force to be present.

I was at the beach this summer and they had excessive police cruisers driving up and down the beach to make sure no one was smoking a cigarette or drinking a beer. No one called the police that day it was just it was Saturday instead of tuesday. They were just there to impose fear in the citizens, as we already imploy professional lifeguards to keep us safe from the dangers of the ocean (something the local police are not trained for).

Sounds like a great idea... but I'd say, get more people, so you can have thousands of people at each location, resulting in even more strain on the system. But we miss the point here. We're trying to get our point across - not terrorize the city. 100,000 people marching - not necessarily causing trouble, would make more of a message than 800 people destroying property.

What about people who need police? What about people who are getting mugged or their homes broken into, robbed, raped, or children abducted because you malcontents are bleeding them dry? Do you even care about them or is your selfish little agenda more important.
