Imagine if one KKK member had gotten just riled up enough from a Donald Trump (endorsed) speech tonight. Imagine that bigot took a life out of hate. It's not a stretch. Every protester in Chicago tonight felt they had to be there to protect the America they and their loved ones have struggled to become a part of. It wasn't pretty but it could have saved a life.

NPR this morning: And continuing his round of interviews on CNN, Trump was asked whether his tone has contributed to these scenes at his rallies. In the past, Trump has said at his rallies that he would like to punch protesters in the face and "knock the crap out of" them.

"I don't take responsibility. No one has been hurt," Trump argued, later adding that, "I certainly don't incite violence or condone violence."

@OP the Donald HIMSELF, in rejecting blame for the event, claimed that nobody got hurt. So which is it? Was it a violent, unruly mob? Or were they just loud and nobody got hurt? Neither you nor Drumpf can have it both ways. #tellitlikeitis #inconvenienttruths

This is why the media are blaming Drumpf: "America is better than this. We don't have to tear each other apart," Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said. "When you have a campaign that disrespects the voters, when you have a campaign that affirmatively encourages violence, when you have campaign that is facing allegations of physical violence against members of the press, you create an environment that only encourages this sort of nasty discourse." When you preach hate, you get hate. He's been inciting violence since the birther movement and now he's rejecting blame for the violence. But, ya know, it's ok because, like, he tells it like it is, and stuff and things, and he'll make us winners, and all these guys are losers, etc., etc., continue ad nauseum.

@OP so you're saying that the protests were violent. Might want to communicate that revelation to your supreme leader who disagreed on CNN.

@D4 the people that were out there had a choice to either have a peaceful protest or a violent protest. They chose to have a violent one, and are responsible for their own actions. And it's clearly evident that many of the protesters last night were looking for a fight

Scenario: You wrote a report with all the analysis and addressed your manager's comments. But your M brings in an undergrad intern to comment / edit your report, and the intern proceeds to essentially rewrite the thing, causing it to miss some key requirements.

I'm reading the situation as the M wanting to include the intern regardless of his/her contributions/qualifications. But this isn't making the report better or addressing the M's needs for the report. It's just creating more work...
