    No it isn't. The right to peacefully protest does not include the right to do whatever the fuck you want, wherever the fuck you want and the other 99.9999999999999999999% of the population just have to deal with it for as long as you want to do it.

    And you fail to mention the riot gear was in response to the"peaceful" protesters throwing bottles.

    For it to be Kent state, there would have to be National Guardsmen, and dead protesters, neither of which were found in these two locations.

    If it's a Tea Party group being accosted, then that's a travesty.

    If it's an OWS group or anything remotely liberal, then the cops did the right thing.

    That was the end of Kent State, not the beginning.

    Police are worthless. We should cut all government funding to support them on any level.
