Louis: Okay. let me spell things out. The black bloc is a counter-productive

tactic no matter the intentions of those that carry it out. When you
wear masks and go on window-breaking rampages, it allows the state to
discredit the entire movement. It also leads to terrible victimization.
A number of people who had nothing to do with the window-breaking idiocy
on Inauguration Day were swept up by the cops and now face lengthy
prison terms.

Actually, all the charges against the Inauguration Day detainees have been
dropped by prosecutors. Of the 21 people who admitted their guilt, only one
person did four months in jail; the rest were not sentenced at all. No one
is facing a lengthy prison term.
