    Hard-liners on DACA may be too hard-hearted for Trump

    Committed to becoming Wonder Woman

    Rule of law should be applied evenly
    I agree with Mr. Lyons’ premise in a Sept. 12 op-ed that the violence perpetrated and often initiated by the Antifa will ultimately harm more passive liberal positions. I disagree though with his minimization of their actions or their organization.His statement, “When masked intruders quit breaking windows and start carrying weapons, things can change fast” is, to me, either naive or dissembling.I think that things change as soon as the protesters or counter protesters start breaking the law. I am upset when marchers (mobs), without a permit close Michigan Avenue or any other public street. Who gives anyone the right or permission to cause even minor property damage like breaking windows and damaging vehicles? The rule of law should be applied to all sides and at all times.Richard M.
