So, with 1100 arrests, many for crimes as simple as having a black article of clothing (many of whom weren't even protesters), these people all "got what they deserved"?

There aren't enough crimes to go around here. All evidence points to about 50 people at most breaking windows (suffering an alarmingly LOW arrest rate). Perhaps a few more setting cop cars alight. But where do the other 1000+ people come in? Especially since many were already in jail at this point...

You can't blame everyone at a protest for crimes committed by "all protesters". That's the law of this land. Don't like it? I hear there's lots of work in Saudi Arabia these days....
