Last week's Denver protests over the no-indictment decision by a Ferguson, Missouri grand jury were intended to be peaceful but ended in four arrests. A subsequent Comment of the Day about whether violence can bring peace inspired even more conversation -- including this provocative take.
Dennis McCabe writes:
I've never witnessed "peaceful" protests ever. Protests are always a way for the "fringe" to burst out from the shadows. I agree with most on here -- make a difference by donating time and or money for the homeless.
