When we review history, I think that there is a great possibility that the violence is being created by provocateurs and informants in order to justify a greater use of suppression by the police. The chaos (and gassing, pepper spray) is deliberately created in order to persuade people to cower before the forces and accept the suppression being heaped upon them and stay at home.
With every report of a shooting, it is just a way of telling the people within the community that they should stay home or they will get hurt. The same trip happened with how the Occupy Wall Street was dealt with.
Firstly; to know where I am coming from, I would need to explain why I hold such a dim view of American justice or Democracy.
And then I need only recall recent history at least what has occurred during my lifetime.
The most paramount instance of where my disrespect towards the "System" began was in the 1960's.
I recall "Operation Northwoods".
Yes, it can be said that the action did not take place, but the very fact that an attack upon American citizens could be even mentioned at the highest echelons of the American government and not leave everyone aghast with such ideas, speaks for itself. The people having such conversations were not charged or castigated but rather promoted.
One would of thought that any government representative who even began to suggest such an action would of been taken out back and shot. (At least get a mental examination.) But this memorandum or suggestion was actually moved up the chain of command for further consideration at the White House.
On the very first day of the Occupation of Wall Street, we saw infiltration by the police. We were leaving Zucotti Park and were stopped in traffic by the rear of the park. We saw an unmarked van open, in the front seat were two uniformed police and out of the back came two men dressed as occupiers wearing backpacks, sweatshirts, and jeans. They walked into Zucotti Park and became part of the crowd.
How many agents or infiltrators can we expect to see inside a movement? One of the most notorious “police riots” was at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Independent journalist Yasha Levine writes: “During the 1968 protests of the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, which drew about 10,000 protesters and was brutally crushed by the police, 1 out of 6 protesters was a federal undercover agent.

The Man Who Armed the Panthers
The man who armed the Black Panthers turns out to have been an FBI informant. FBI files, uncovered by journalist Seth Rosenfeld, reveal that Richard Aoki, a prominent activist in the 1960s who was the first to supply the Black Panthers with guns and weapons training, was also an undercover FBI source. A mysterious character who always sported sunglasses, even at night, Aoki was a militant leader of the Third World Strike and an activist with the Asian American Political Alliance at UC Berkeley.

I could go on and on but I don't want to bore you all. I have studied this topic extremely closely for a lifetime and have a huge database of historical context.
