What’s the difference between the police response to Black Lives Matter protests and their response to the Capitol Hill riots?

Well, it’s black and white.

Why do riot police arrive early to the protests?

... so they can beat the crowds!

Edit: Wow, this is now my second highest upvoted post ever, and it's not even my own joke! Totally should have credited the video I saw this in: https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout/comments/h8btkp/protester_has_a_joke_for_the_police_officers/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

Thanks for the laughs and great comment threads, Reddit :)

If the government banned cigarettes, I would shout slogans and protest

But I'm afraid I wouldn't have the lung capacity

In the early 1900's, a number of protests arose because of employment of children in coal mines.

I suppose you could say the owners had a minor minor miner problem.

My brother, the pro baseball pitcher, told me about the time he intentionally walked every player on the opposing team as a protest against unfairness in life...

That took a lot of balls.

The police arrested two kids yesterday during a protest. One was drinking battery acid and the other was eating firecrackers.

They charged one, and lit the other off.

My orchestra buddy wanted to bring his fiddle to a protest. I told him not to.

In a peaceful protest, there's no need for violins.

Gordon Ramsay once survived a mustard-gas attack when he was in the army. Then, he got pepper-sprayed whilst at a protest.

You could say that he is relished among the cooking community, and truly a seasoned veteran

straightforward.

I see these protest signs everywhere. I don't think they're working

Maybe they should change their message

My dad says this all the time. Still never gets old. We live in Illinois so this is like our state motto.
