Quiet Riot: This evening’s protest by students against the death penalty was more the size of a small possey than a mob. Five or six gathered around one of the tables in front of Collis and attempted to light candles in the brisk wind. Eventually, someone brought forth some Solo cups to protect the lighted candles. After taking many more photographs than there were people, the group slowly moved out across the Green in a huddle. Cups in hand, they could easily have been a group of harmless Saturday night revelers quietly sneaking back to their rooms.

I have to say, their introspective and silent tone was a very pleasing and refreshing form of protest for us non-participants. Future protestors take note.
