Trump's tear gas photo-op was 'frightening' to authoritarianism experts, who warn that his behavior will only get worse without 'fierce opposition’. One example of the problem for an opposition is that Los Angeles protesters who get arrested will be given a citation with a fine of $1000.

It's time for Congress to subpoena General Mattis to testify. https://t.co/3zBa5hZ2dF

Why did Trump pick Mattis to be his Defense Secretary if Mattis is “the world's most overrated General” and “his primary strength was not military,” as Trump now claims?

General Mattis speaks out. It is time for other former senior Trump Administration officials speak out as well. America is so much better than this. https://t.co/w3npuIb3b5

NEW from NBC News:
A man charged by federal prosecutors with conspiracy to cause destruction at Las Vegas protests openly called for insurrection on public, far-right Boogaloo groups on Facebook.
He once posted 4chan's Kekistan flag on his wall.https://t.co/zR03H9Vpux

Personally I am looking forward to the trend piece about what Park Slope Pilates instructors think about using the Insurrection Act.

That's unlawful. They are not a command with jurisdiction to be in DC. The House should issue an arrest warrant for the Commanding officer. And send the Sargent at Arms to arrest him/her and hold in the Capital. https://t.co/fABHykj69F

Documenting a protest with photo and video can be an important part of telling the story of what happened and when. But those photos can also be used to harm you or your fellow protesters.
