Rekha Basu, Des Moines Register, "If only the clock could have stopped at 7 in Des Moines;

what happened later 'wasn't the way to do it'".
. . .
Flash-forward an hour or two and a few blocks east. As evening morphed into night, peaceful protest morphed into deliberate provocation and destruction. From what I could see, and have since heard, those in the vanguard, agitating and throwing stones at police and into store windows, were not the same ones pledging earlier to work harder for justice. In fact, they appeared to be opportunists seizing the occasion to sow fear and distrust of peaceful protesters.
