Attention #Ferguson: Terrorizing Kids is not the way to protest.

First a group in Seattle terrorized a children’s choir who were trying to sing at a tree lighting.  The kids were up on the balcony when the protestors took it over.  They kids were terrified and had to be rushed off to a corner.  Most of them were crying.  A reporter at the scene had this to say:

Then tonight I see this on twitter:

There were kids in that Ferris wheel while these nuts walked around screaming.  I’ll be honest, they are lucky I wasn’t there, or God help me I might be in jail tonight.

I get that they want to protest, I even understand that they are upset about Tamir Rice & others who don’t have Christmas this year….  but dammit, leave the kids alone!  There is no reason to terrorize kids to get your message across.  NONE of this helps their cause. None.  I’d say one day someone is going to die at one of these protests, but it’s already happened.

Oh, the irony. Afgan Muslims burn Korans during protest over Koran burning.

As the dust settles in Afghanistan after sustained protest over a Florida pastor’s Quran burning, many residents in Kandahar are facing an unpleasant truth: More Qurans were burned in the course of their protests than by Terry Jones. The demonstrations, which started peacefully, quickly turned violent, killing at least nine people and injuring scores in Kandahar City alone. And as protesters vandalized a girls’ school and set fire to shops, Qurans also inadvertently went up in flames. “If they burn a shop, there is a Quran in every shop, so this is a big problem,” says Azizullah Aziz, a perfume and soap salesman in Kandahar City. “People don’t know how to protest.”
