Seattle police are reporting that several arson fires have been set by protesters Saturday afternoon local time. A construction trailer at the site of a juvenile detention center was torched. There is also a report of businesses set on fire.
Peaceful protesters are not rioters.
Rioters are not peaceful protesters.
The failure to make this simple distinction is what happens when political calculations prevent us from being morally and logically consistent.
