Civil unrest is going to be common and the government is going to try to control it with brute force.

 
Hate to burst your bubble but civil "unrest" is a common place in the US and has been so probably for at least 20 years. Probably helped significantly by the internet. On any given day and every single day excluding extreme weather, there are multiple public gatherings of protesters. And this says nothing about the posts that people make on the internet.
 
And for the most part the police are much more lenient in the last 20 years towards certain acts of civil disobedience even when they break laws as long as there is a minimal amount of that.
 
The difference between all of that and the act above however is that those people do not attempt to kill other people. And killing other people is a crime - civil rights do not trump criminal law. So yes the government is going to stop it, now and in the future.
