Protesters should not hide their faces

I, for one, and there are plenty of others, are fed up with the so-called “protests.” Yes, they have a constitutional right to protest anything they like but, invariably, they can’t be satisfied with a peaceful protest, they have to block traffic, sidewalks, store fronts, etc. Then, in comes the masked protesters, who then wreak havoc and destroy property.

We need laws that prevent protesters from hiding their identity and we need to stiffen laws for those who block traffic, commerce and destroy property. Some of these laws are on the books but are not enforced as aggressively as they should be. The “protesters” use their right to protest but abuse everyone else’s right to safety and free passage without harassment.
