The solution to this is simple: Go home by 9 pm and get some sleep. Don’t give Trump’s goons any targets to shoot at late at night and in the early mornings. I’ve spent my entire adult life, much of it filled with radical protests, and not once have I found out what riot gear looks like in the flesh, because I generally follow this one simple rule. I didn’t even do it on purpose. That’s just how it worked out. It takes two groups to tango. If you really want peace, then don’t engage the enemy.
