Seems to me that neither the police or the protesters realize that ordinary people that do not have ties to either the police or protesters are adversely affected by both the protesters and the thugs with badges that want to limit free speech. If you live paycheck to paycheck any delay in getting to a low paying job will hurt you. At the best you lose a couple of hours of work, at worst you get fired for being late. Politics is a game that only those with money can afford to play. I just wish that both the lunatics with badges and the protesters (who may very well be right in many cases) would realize that shutting down streets, and vandalizing other peoples property actually hurts innocent people who are just trying to survive in an increasingly more expensive world!!
