    To refute your claim here:
    "I hate to break it to you, but my definition of peaceful does not include protesting."
    Non-violent protest is actually one of the definitions of Peaceful, as I've documented.

    Since neither you nor I were in attendance when the event occurred, how could either of us have any indication of what her intentions were? This is a meaningless argument.
    What do you imagine her intentions were, other than what she has stated???



    Again, what is your point? Police officers who consistently make "wrong" decisions will not last very long before they will be let go. But to demand that all police officers make perfect decisions every single time is unrealistic.
    I never made that demand?

    My claim was that my definition of peaceful didn't include protesting. Again, that is my definition. I also linked to a legitimate reference that supports that. You linked to one that didn't. All this underscores my point that "peaceful" is subjective.

    What do you imagine her intentions were, other than what she has stated???
    I don't make any assumption about what her intentions were. She may very well have had perfectly peaceful ones. The point is that we cannot play arm-chair judge and make rulings about the situation without either having been there, or hearing testimony from all sides.

    I never made that demand?
    Sorry, you're right. That was a little harsh. The word "expect," I think, would have been more appropriate.
