"Despite political and police rhetoric, maintaining ban is best way to ensure that protesters are protected" states the article but it also ensures that the protesters are in fear that they know they are out numbered and if anything happens the police would react. this is a show of aggression like how in the book all american boys when the protest starts quinn notices how the police are armed to the teeth with tanks and he said that he was scared that hr didnt know what he was doing and that he should go home after he sees the tanks rolling by.
this protest mostly led by Richard Spence a so called "poster child" for the alt-right wing or most commonly known as a white supremacist bearing torches, defending a confederate generals statue from being removed. This was the most public hate rally this country has seen in years although this rally promoted a man with racist and hate full tendencies police did not arrive , swat teams or armored cars did not arrive neither. This ties to the book i many ways , unlike the rally the schools peaceful protest was met with many obstacles such as highly equipped vehicles , weapons etc this goes for show that the system ln real life and in the book are corrupt negating and putting down movements such as BLM or rashads protest.
during a protest against the police killing of Jamar Clark the protest was cut short by a group of supremacist pulling weapons out disrupting the rally shooting 5 men. like the story this protest held out side of the 4 precinct of the police station the situation was not kept quit these type of situations should never be kept quit if the people do not resist the oppressors will win even after 5 men where shot it sent a message to the world like how rashads protest did the message being loud and clear that we will resist

Edwards, a high school freshman, was leaving the party with his two brothers and two other teenagers Saturday night. Police arrived at the scene to investigate an underage drinking complaint and spotted the vehicle leaving. Oliver opened fire as the teenagers were driving away. This was no reason why the officer should of opened fire his actions killed a young teenage boy who did nothing wrong like in the story, this could of been rashad, the officer couldve shot and killed rashad and he couldve been apart of the names of people that officers have killed of course if rashad was real. but even though this problems happens all to often.
