In today’s age, what looks like a perfect world to me is no where near perfect once I started researching about protesting dangers. “First and foremost is police brutality. Regardless of who’s right or wrong that’s not going to end well for anyone.” This comment from The Wise Sloth is one of the many dangers of protesting today. Police are enforced to keep civilians safe, that’s their job, but women are still trying to convince the world that both genders are the equal and until that happens, protesting will not come to an end. Second, a danger not many people would realize, but is out there, would be other citizens not agreeing with you. There have been many cases of protesting and fights broke out in the middle of the street because two people did not believe in the same thing. In Colorado Springs, I don’t come across many physical protests like marching outside a building holding a sign or people creating associations to protest. We have so many actions that are not right in today’s age, but we chose to be more civil and use our knowledge and compromise, until it is necessary to become physical (which it should not be necessary.) By the end, I believe that our world still had dangers when protesting, but we have evolved from when we were protesting for Woman’s Rights.
