Snoofy, you might want to look up the word peaceful. It does not mean smashing windows, tagging, yelling in people's face, looting, throwing things at police officers, and the other criminal behaviors of these thugs. They do not have a Constitutional right to do the things I listed. For you, since you don't like to read or listen, the Constitution says peaceful protest are protected. Once you start criminal actions, the peaceful part is not happening and so you have lost your constitutional right. Stop living by your emotions and live in the real word of truths.
