I totally agree. And there's a thing called mob mentality and it's real. Someone who WAS a peaceful protester might turn into a non-peaceful protester if everyone else is doing it. It happens. Look at sports riots. Why the hell would anyone, let alone hundreds of people, destroy something if their team won the big game? Human psychology is imperfect, often idiotic from the outside looking in. But also predictable. I just don't think you can say that riots and looting erase the original message of a protest. That's my position and I won't ever change it. Further, secondary to that I believe people who do think that rioting and looting erases the the original message of a protest are intentionally duped into thinking that way. That's it really.
