Ever wonder how people get away with wearing masks at political protests? Ever wonder why the police just let it go? Me too. If you’re not there to cause trouble, why do you need to hide your face? Why don’t you want to be identified doing whatever you went there to do? You’re not Batman, bro.

So this is a welcome sight:

If this kid had just obeyed the lawful request by those police officers, he would’ve been allowed to go about his business. He didn’t, and now we’ve all seen what he was trying to hide.

More of this, please. These guys are a lot less likely to run around punching people and breaking stuff if they know they can be identified.
