Protests in Rochester again coerce ordinary citizens dining out

Rochester aerial aug 17 2007

Protesters (regarding previous death of Daniel Prude) disrupted outdoor dining and flipped over tables in Rochester, New York, last night, in a night of protests that were largely peaceful (Bill Willcott et al, in the Democrat and Chronicle), but there were other moments of high energy. 

Here is twitter video of the restaurant attack, a lot more emphatic than what happened in Washington DC recently (Aug 26). 

Marissa Lang writes in the Washington Post that more radical protests are here to stay for a while.
