Here police drag two arrested protesters away:

Police fire teargas to disburse protesters:

    When peaceful demonstrations become violent, Police must take action to disperse the demonstrators. We, the people, have the RIGHT to demonstrate. We do not have the right to destroy property or injure those who oppose our views. It is my opinion that demonstrators are trespassing when they take their protests into malls. At the vary least, protestors preventing people from shopping in those mall stores. To me, this is wrong and needs to be stopped. How much money did this demonstration cost the shop owners in sales, damages, etc.
