Question After the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri in the summer of 2014, there were large protest and marches, some of which led to looting and violence. Some of the protesters came from elsewhere and trained in elements of civil disobedience before protesting. Were the actions of the peaceful demonstrators directly causal to the looters and violence that occurred later? How should police respond to civil disobedience  (marching in the street or occupying public land after being given a lawful order to dispetse)?
