Had the guy himself killed the cops or one of the cops during the struggle because he feared for his life he would have a good case. Once the dog pile was broke up by the citizens the immediate threat was gone. Had he or anyone else then killed one of the cops it would have been homicide. Nobody wants lawlessness from the cops or the citizens. I think they did the right thing other than letting a few of them off the field without a good beating. I guarantee they will think again how they should act the next time someone runs on the field with a deadly sign.
The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson
