I mean, I'm not saying that violence (a.k.a. some forms of "direct action") is never an option when dealing with overt oppression...

smh

Uh-oh indeed... remember, it's never riots that are violent, it's riot suppression that is

Now we get to watch Tona's troops illustrate the principles of restraint and proportional use of force.

I read somewhere that the number one reason that fewer countries get overthrown in recent centuries is because cities don't use cobblestones anymore... and thus the mob doesn't have easy access to lethal projectiles.

Y'know, I've heard a dirty rumour that the guy who throws the first rock/bottle in most riots in the US is usually an undercover cop. Surely that can't be true though, the police would never break the law, right?

You gotta be careful about getting what you want, you really do, e.g. "Disruption in Washington".

Prof's whole city has been asking for it.

There are consequences for stepping away from the battle, even for a few seconds...

I'm pretty sure that Marvel and DC didn't make their fortunes by portraying a whole lot of peaceful conflict resolution!

But yeah, entertainment is one thing, assholes in the real world are another. Are you ready for martial law?
