The Latest: 16 arrested at Baltimore City Hall protest
Protesters issue demands for Baltimore police ahead of commissioner’s appointment hearing

Protests resume at Baltimore City Hall after 16 arrested, jailed for trespassing

Similar items in my Yahoo! News feed as of 11:00 today:
“Baltimore activists arrested after protest at City Hall over police moves” – Washington Post
“Baltimore protesters arrested after staging a sit-in at city hall” – Mashable
“At least 12 arrested for occupying Baltimore City Hall after police commissioner appointment hearing” – Fox News

These demonstrators appear to be principally interested in getting media attention, and the media has accommodated them completely.  It’s questionable whether I should even be paying attention to them here.

Opposition to Kevin Davis’s appointment — even to the process by which it would happen, as if it ought to be a question of plebiscite — borders on the frivolous.  Their nineteen demands pertained wholly to the privileges they wanted extended toward demonstrators  — hardly anything that would address this city’s problems.
