The Oregonian posted an article titled “Two Portland residents facing federal grand jury subpoena from Seattle vow they won’t cooperate” about an FBI raid on two NE Portland folks who they suspect may have been involved in a May Day domestic terrorist acts on the courthouse in Seattle, WA. The two suspects are allegedly involved with an anarchist group, and their lawyers have advised them to invoke their 1st, 4h and 5th amendment rights if questioned by the grand jury.
Frankly, if people want to protest the government, a war, or the economic state, they should do so without resorting to the lowest common denominator, like rioting, looting, violence and property damage. This immediately shuts off the majority of the population to whom their initial demonstration were meant to inspire. I can’t support groups like this if their message is spread through shouts and violent behavior.
