Reader: American Indian protest at FlatIron Crossing not a flash mob

Sam Levin's post about a First Nations protest at FlatIrons Crossing prompted plenty of comments, in part because organizers described the event, which resulted in five arrests, as a flash mob.

Among those with opinions on the subject is a local flash-mob expert.

I run Denver Flash Mob (mentioned in the Westword many times), and I have to say that this is not a flash mob. It is a mob and it is a protest, but not a flash mob.
