The only people who need to protest past 9 or 10pm are punks, especially in a period when nighttime protests have generally gone horribly wrong.
Protesting is about making your voice heard in a democratic society. The curfew was imposed by the politicians, one of the good decisions they've made.
The Seattle and Portland mayors are cowardly lawless morons who refuse to uphold the law and maintain order. The reason why these fed troops are there in the first place. I'd say just let the city burn and destroy itself, but i assume there's good people living there who don't want their businesses destroyed by stupid protestors and politicians.
THis whole thing could be solved in a few days by arresting all the people who stay out long past curfew. But then the cops are stupid too and would probably do terrible and violent things to people and cause more BS. Meanwhile, the Chinese gov is laughing.
