    They're protesting because yet another abuse of policing was captured on video and put on a perpetual loop by a media that thrives on conflict and social disorder. It's a fact that some cops are bad and that some departments/city governments cover that up (largely because the police unions give generous campaign donations). But clearly there are other players using this crisis to push their own issues. In same cases it's the "militia" types looking to flex and in others it's malcontent suburban Millennials buying into the idea that they'd somehow survive anarchy. The best way to protect the protestors' 1st Amendment rights is to weed out those who aren't in the streets for the right reasons.
