Outside agitators (anarchists) are trying to hijack the demonstrations, and turn them into riots.

If the riots can be contained to a small area, close to where the demonstrators live, the damage to innocent parties in other areas can be minimized.

Anarchy means without a ruler. it is a word that goes against corrupt authority. It does not mean chaos or with out rules or violence. most people who aren't anarchists are violent, such as cops soldiers, banks who crated chaos and lawlessness and poverty for Americans. those are the real agitators.

Where are these 'protesters' when a gangbanger shoots up a bbq and innocent kids die?  Nowhere to be found.
