regular reminder if you're going to a protest, do not post that online
do not RSVP to facebook (or other) events
tell someone close to you in person that you're going
don't bring your phone
whether things go smoothly or get rough, hopefully you get home
when you do, *still* don't fucking post about it
it doesn't matter if you think you're planning on committing any criminal acts or not
merely being present at a "riot" is a crime, you could be misidentified and have something else pinned on you
the cops are well known for "kettling" in large groups of people and just arresting them en masse
if you do get arrested, then your smartass cute post about going to a protest just became evidence
@SeanAloysiusOBrien Basically If you're gonna protest, dont treat it like a cracker frat party down by the lake; take it seriously.
