So it’s disappointing that his chief of police should openly refuse to enforce the law calling on the police to defend citizens and visitors against violence during political demonstrations.

I agree. All of the DC government walks a fine line of keeping the public happy including extreme left wing moms and dads who have kids involved with these protests. DC is different than most cities. We the people of the entire nation have a right to visit our Nation's Capitol without reasonable fear of being injured during public gatherings. They can get pressure from the entire Nation.

I should add that, although I have never been able to join any of these protests in person, I have followed them closely on FR for many years, in words and pictures.

I know from having read hundreds of threads over the years that Kristinn is extremely careful to check in with the authorities, get necessary permits for any protests, and educate any Freepers or others who join with him as to the rules and regulations to be followed.

FR has always been extremely careful to follow the rules and guidelines as well as to avoid any violence. And I have often read that the police assigned to these events, although they may personally disagree with our politics, have always appreciated the behavior and discretion of FR protestors or defenders of our troops.
