  1. The picture of the sign that that you cannot read says “F THE POLICE,” not sure why they would show a picture of a sign you can’t read. Also note the U.S. flags on one side an the lack of on the other. Also present were Antifa Flags and an anarchist flag. Again, no U.S. flags present on one side. Makes you think!
