1. So tell me, other than just trying to reject any authority, why

are those people there, basically saying "Come get me."

3. Not really.

They want justice, and are not recognizing nor complying the imposed police state. I guess maybe you're not black and don't have to worry about your kids being shot down by racists. Sadly, there are plenty of them out there and in our police forces.

6. They are your proxy

They are doing what we all should be doing. Saying "NO MORE". The protests should be happening throughout this land, right now, right where each of us lives.

I am a white, 50 year old nurse and if I lived anywhere near Ferguson, I would have been out there with them. I have been out with Occupy many times. You should be too. Be an involved citizen, it's not just your right, it's your responsibility.

20. You're right. We should all be there.

We have to stand up to these lawless militarized police forces. They wouldn't understand justice if it bit 'em on the ass. The nation is corruption from sea to shining sea but they're focused on jaywalkers because they are young black men..

21. I have absolutely NO problem with protesting!

My problem is with the hand full of people who deliberately stuck around AFTER the curfew. It just seemed like deliberate taunting to me. As for protesting in the streets and at all the new conferences they've beeen holding, I'm all for it.
I guess you all think I'm wrong, but I think that just supports the nay sayers who claim all the protesters are criminals that dont believe in any laws.

23. Yep, it is.

Peaceful assembly is one of our supposed rights, without restriction.

8. This is classic civil disobedience

You force the police to arrest you or beat you for assembling to protest. This is how we did it back in the day. You refuse to move.

14. It's called

Passive resistance. You stand for those who cannot and in this case the young Mr. Brown who will never be able to stand again.

15. They feel as if society is saying that people like Michael Brown -- and they themselves --

don't matter.

They are determined to show that they do matter. They want to make people listen.

Who can blame them?

13. I've heard some say there are 'outside agitators'

my question to them is how do they know? How do they know that not everyone who is there are people from locations outside of Ferguson? Do they check IDs of every protester?

Someone mentioned that Martin Luther King was also called an outside agitator.

And there was a marine marching with protesters recently too. Is he an outside agitator?

It's easy to claim that some are there just trying to cause trouble but it doesn't mean it's true...
