compare and contrast violent and nonviolent protest movements
Nonviolent: Protestors would have these moments where they weren't doing anything wrong; they wouldn’t be on television getting beat up by their opponents. Basically, nonviolent protest draws attention.
Violent: Violent protest draws attention to the fact that you are a menace to society.
