Spokane Michael Brown Protests Peaceful, Compared to Portland – Seattle
Perhaps a lesson in peaceful expression of an opinion?
While many Americans have grown tired of protestors hijacking the Michael Brown shooting for their own selfish purposes, at least some in Spokane did it peacefully.
According to news sources, around 200 marchers Tuesday night marched through downtown Spokane, carrying signs in support of Brown, and condemning what they felt was oppression by law enforcement.
However, the Spokane marchers, in contract to Portland and Seattle, simply marched through downtown that evening, held a brief rally, then marched back to their starting point. Police said it was done peacefully, calmly and without incident.
No reports of any violence or turmoil were reported. While we don't agree with these protestors, they certainly could teach the rioters in Seattle and Portland a thing or two about expressing themselves in a civil manner.
