“Rights in Conflict” & “The Chicago Democratic Convention”

The protest against the Chicago Convention devolved into a “police riot” because as the authorities began to try to clear the city of the protestors, violence erupted when protestors refused to leave and the police resorted to beatings. When the beatings against the protestors became more violent, the protestors began fighting back and resulted in a mass police-protestor war that badly injured a lot of people. Because of the unnecessary beatings and clear disapproval of protests against the Chicago Convention, protestors grew to be more violent as they fought against the war.
