    Seems the police feel that a number of journalists were participants as well as reporters...

    Four more journalists have been charged with felonies after being arrested while covering the unrest around Donald Trumpís inauguration, meaning that at least six media workers are facing up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine if convicted.
    A documentary producer, a photojournalist, a live-streamer and a freelance reporter were each charged with the most serious level of offense under Washington DCís law against rioting, after being caught up in the police action against demonstrators.
    The Guardian learned of their arrests after reporting on Monday that the journalists Evan Engel of Vocativ and Alex Rubinstein of RT America had also been taken into custody by police and charged with felonies while covering the same unrest on Friday morning.

      Good.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        Agents Provocateur is the term, I believe.
        It isn't just a matter of sentiment, that does not even come into it.

        What the problem is involves guys with cameras running around egging them on and promising to make people famous on TV if they will amp it up, get even more wild and violent than they already are.

        An old ratings trick, in other words.
        Throw the book at 'em.
