Talking to the media

As I was walking home from work, I came across a small protest at the corner of 14th and Broadway. There were media representatives everywhere, probably awaiting a flashstorm/riot event, and apparently the group got larger later (about 100 people) before the police dispersed the protestors and shut down some of the streets downtown. It was, to be sure, significantly calmer than last night, but as I kept walking home, I passed through a group of four police officers heading back toward City Center in riot gear. And the ubiquitous helicopters that started flying yesterday were still circling overhead.
