If I were white and wanted to break shit while a protest were going on I would simply do it in a different part of town while the police were at the protest to force them to decide to leave the protest to come deal with the violence elsewhere or let it go on unabated.

@imani Don’t think I’ve seen that exactly, but I’ve watched a group of Greek communist football ultras distract the police while activists occupied nearby buildings.

@imani ...but that’s London, where there’s a lot of surveillance and it’s arguably safer to hide in a crowd than assume the police won’t track you and pick you up later.
