    I wholly disagree with this, you should be allowed to protest in a 'democracy' (if they were being excessively violent I understand) and I am astonished and how quick people are trying to defend this.

    Let's lock people up because they're lefties? Are you mad? You cannot sit there and try to say that left-wingers impose on freedom of speech etc. and then demand those who don't hold the same views as you be locked away, the hypocrisy is rife.

    I expect nothing less from this dumbass Trump era but honestly the attitudes of people on this forum continue to, somehow, surprise me.
    Freedom of speech does not include assaulting police, starting fires and destroying property if it was a protest it wouldn't happen but it wasn't it was antifa once again being violent

    And I expect the 200-odd arrested were ANTIFA too...

    How one can defend these militants astounds me.

    Up to 10 years. If they badly injured anyone then fair play. Otherwise, OTT. If I were Trump I'd pardon them, like a BOSS :bandit:

    actually, women can't even be charged with rape in the USA.
    Yes, they can.

    good. let those *******s rot for their thuggery and intimidation. they are enemies of democracy and peaceful politics itself. hopefully this will set a good example of such parasitic brutes. you should be able to protest peacefully all you want, but if you protest through violence then I have absolutely no sympathy for the sentence you get to be honest. I have absolutely no respect for such uncivilised mongoloids.

    10 years in a US prison, a few male feminist SJW are going to be introduced to real rape culture.

    If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

    Good, good. Great to see that the Trump administration is already at work dealing with the violent leftists. Now to take care of those "women's rights" protesters.
    The women's rights protesters weren't being violent

      Also you misspelt "Rioters" in the title.

        They will face up to 10 years, depending on the charges. I doubt most of them will actually be in for more than a few months, particularly if they have no criminal history, plead guilty, etc.

        Seconding both of these. Pretty miffed by the bull**** sticky thing on the side of the site misrepresenting the facts of the issue as much as is humanly possible. If it wasn't deliberate then someone needs to remove their rosy contact lenses.

        What a misleading title! These aren't protesters - they're rioters. No peaceful protestors are being punished in any way, and rightly so, but these thugs deserve some custodial sentence... 10 years however seems excessive in the extreme.
