Sure, I agree, case by case, but it’s also true we have seen a recent national trend emerge, the signs, of which today’s calamity is an almost predictable extension. In this case, we saw a protest very quickly, and unsurprisingly, spiral into abject violence. I wasn’t surprised, at least. Because of this trend, law enforcement, even National Guard, cannot afford to take a “wait and see” or " monitor" approach, as I think I saw the Guard, quoted. They must be on the ground, heavily and organized, and tactically immediate when violence, or threat of it, even just harassment, is apparent. Now, I have no knowledge of what was happening in Charlottesville, in this regard, but it doesn’t appear to have been enough, when the threat should have been obvious in the days and weeks prior to warrant. It’s simply negligent, not due diligence, to claim in the aftermath, well, free speech. There is plenty of free speech to be had behind and proximate police cordons and street barricades and protected routes. The fact that violent mayhem occurred today with too late and too little police intervention is proof positive. Lots of fights, virtual pitched street battles going on and nary a paddy wagon in sight. much less uniforms interceding until after too much of the fact. This is all enough for public officials to read the tea leaves going forward when faced with similar protest battle lines, and be more proactive before such a “protest,” both with law enforcement presence and organization, and even to attempt permit denial in court for organizations and individuals, both sides, who are repeatedly shown to commit assaut, even just harass, as I do not think 1st Amendment jurisprudence protects harassment, incitement to violence, or violence. Maintain free speech, sure, but today the police obviously didn’t handle the situation, so there must have been more than the exercise of free speech happening.
