People keep whining, “OMG the protestors! Why will not one say anything about the protestors? Why will no one do anything about the protestors?”

First of all: EVERYONE is saying something about the protestors. Literally everyone. People talk about it constantly.

Secondly: There is nothing they CAN do about protestors. The more violence or threat of violence you put against them, the more likely that peotests turn into full-blown rioting, and the longer actual rioting will continue once it has begun.

No no, there is nothing productive to do with the protests except ignore them, from a public health standpoint. And encourage social distancing and mask wearing.
