    That would be consistent with the past 75 years of protest history. During the Vietnam era, the guy advocating most vigorously for breaking windows and hitting cops was almost always the one who mysteriously disappeared out of the paddy wagon on the way to the lock-up, and was never seen again.

    I heard the same was true at some Occupy sites, though have no confirmation of that.

    Violence justifies crack-downs, so if the real protestors refuse on principle to engage in any, some way must be found to create it.
