We all know what the civil rights protests lead to.

The women's rights protests lead to the women's rights protests and women being allowed the same educational and professional opportunities as men.

Environmental activism lead to the creation of the EPA and state agencies regulating the environment.

I'm sure work routines were disrupted in these protests as well, but as a rule protesters have never cared.

When we had the American Revolution, I'm sure rebelling against the British disrupted someone's job too. But it created the USA.
Yeah but those were all genuine injustices. Criminals fighting with the cops and ending up dead...please. Call me when something controversial happens.

We should all have the right to be arrested a couple dozen times or on an average of once per year without getting murdered by law enforcement on accident no matter how unhealthy we are.

Gardner was going to be arrested for selling loosies. Being that due to the high price of cigarettes, most smokers have either bought or sold loosies. So are they all criminals?

And you G-Dale, have admitted to using weed on this forum. So that makes you a criminal. Should the cops take you down with force?

They'd kill people, including rabbis and including the head of the teachers union Randi Weingartem?

That would have big consequences all around and some pretty negative consequences for Staten Island.

At any rate, the protesters already have political concessions, so they are getting what they want. They are successful.

The cop camera pilot program starts Friday, for starters. Look at the comments of Obama, de Blasio, Cuomo, and Holder who have already made major concessions. And even conservatives like Nancy Grace have spoken out and condemned the cops on some of this.

Keep protesting, keep threatening to shut the city down. Where do you think all of this ends? It ends with all the productive people leaving the city and with them goes the tax base that pays for the protestors entitlements. Enjoy living in Detroit v 2.0.

The right wing always threatens this. All the productive people are going to leave NYC. Wealthy people won't leave NYC because of protests. It's lower middle class whites who cannot afford the city who leave. For starters, New York's wealthy aren't targeted, the NYPD is. The closing of the Lincoln tunnel effected middle class people driving home to NJ. Goodbye and good riddance, for rather obvious reasons.
