Be sure to read this note from TPM Reader AS

I was among the scores of protesters at the Wyatt Detention Facility in Central Falls, Rhode Island last night. Like many, I left before a guard at the facility drove his truck into a crowd of my fellow activists, and his colleagues pepper-sprayed others. But I was hectored as I was leaving, and I felt the sense of menace in the air. To call the atmosphere “tense” would be an understatement.
