Why is this a national concern?
Trump may extend this federal intervention to other cities under the guise of maintaining "law and order"
Unwanted and unnecessary federal law enforcement presence threatens public safety
Agents are using excessive force, tear gas, and rubber bullets-crowd control devices that police cannot use
Federal agents are potentially making arrests without probable cause, which violates constitutional rights and civil liberties
Unidentifiable agents create fear, paranoia, and mistrust of law enforcement
Extremist militias could impersonate legal authorities and kidnap innocent people
" This would justify more federal and police presence to maintain 'order'
Federal agents are not locally accountable
