Who was the genius that came up with the design for the bus stops on the beach? Talk about a hazard and potential lawsuit. The new bus stops project cut into a turn lane and have 4-inch high curbs to surround it. I almost busted my tires trying to avoid it while driving.

The First Amendment to the Constitution allows for "people to peaceably assemble." When people destroy public and private property, they are wrong. When people attack police and citizens, they are wrong. When people hide behind masks and riot, they are cowards and criminals.
