Not everyone present outside sought a permit to attend

When the city made it a permit-only event, they denied everyone not officially welcomed in to cross their arbitrary line. Any property owners, business owners, and others who normally had access to that area were denied simply because folks with titles said so.

After it was over, no permit-line continued to exist. That was where and when the Sheriff's thugs asserted their force. No resistance was offered, except to show their willingness to be pushed up against and back, though they knew their right was to be exactly where they were being forcefully denied.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
