Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another question that arises is: "How were the torches obtained?" They all appeared to be identical to me. And there were a lot of them. They looked like garden variety 'Tiki torches' - perhaps $20 - $30 each, but in the hundreds or thousands. Have the organizers stated a number for the size of the procession? How does that compare with police estimates?

Then there is the question: "What are the policies and limitations on public processions on University and city streets, respectively?" Are there any? What tools would have been available and what restrictions could have been imposed had Black Lives Matter sought a permit for a procession with over 1,000 participants at the University or in the town.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
