That isn’t true at all, you made that up, the protesters weren’t violent.
The relevant point here is the biggest arrest in American history, 13,000, the massive presence of full combat troops, and the internment in camps for days, without charges and in some cases without food and bedding.
I what? Made up the part about the Chicago riots at the DemocRATic National Convention? You mean the ones I had law enforcement friends at? Or perhaps the riots at the NIU campus that my brother participated in?
The violence of the 60-70s was real. My neighbors brother was a policeman in chicago during the democrat convention. It was violent, and the crowds threw at the cops tennis balls with large nails pushed threw them, bags of feces and urine and finally mayor Daly said shut them down. The press wrote it as a police riot against peaceful protestors, just like they do today for the left....I believe the Chicago 7 went to trial and made a mockery of the courts, and that was before the courts were full of commies and progressives...One ran for congress and was voted in, good old Liz Taylor married one and they all loved Hanoi Jane, sitting on a vietcong gun (between her legs). If you were not an adult during those times, your ignorance and lack of knowledge is showing.
