In terms of "armed response" by the "fascist" police, I would be interested what your response would be if I and two or three others obstructed the door to your home and challenged you to try to get by to enter.What exactly are the "protesters" protesting? If they have a valid argument, then yes, they should be given a voice. But if they are doing so just for their own personal and unfounded errant philosophy, i.e. those who choose "anarchy", then they should be treated as any other threat to society. It's a new game. We have a new President and many believe in him. He understands the importance of globalization and its inevitability and he is culturally integrated. Violent protests don't do much to help him achieve his goals.
