Do you mean that you think my personal opinion on these wacknuts is about their politics, or that LE's treatment of them is more about the politics?I have a feeling that it has more to do with their politics than their intent.
I can only speak for me, but I don't care what their politics are. There's a big difference between passively blocking a street and actively threatening and detaining individuals. My response is proportional to the threat level.
I'm left of center, but I'm definitely not a fan of skateboard chuds throwing molotovs and rocks at the police. When they turn their sights on disrupting me and my rights, they'll get the same response. Violence is violence, threats are threats.
