Wrongful Protest

I understand the desire to protest.  In fact, I would encourage people who feel strongly about an issue to protest actions that are in conflict with their beliefs.  I very much appreciate the freedom that we have in America to freely voice our opinions.  I do not, however, think that protests should be conducted in a way that is illegal, destructive, or violent.  When protests get out of control, they do more harm than good.  The energy that is wasted could be put to a more productive activity.  The individuals who organize protests should strongly encourage the participants to exercise self-control and to remain with the boundaries of the law.   After all, are they working for a change for the common good, or just the adrenaline rush of a fight?
