Response to Wicked Blue (Original post)

1. That was a different era and not really a fair comparison.

It's far more relevant to compare yesterday's events to the Black Lives Matter protests over the summer.

I suspect police leadership may have viewed their response to the BLM protests as too heavy handed and swung too far in the opposite direction, but I'm speculating and they really need to come out and say why yesterday was handled differently than this summers events. There really needs to be dialogue around the vastly different responses.
