I wonder if they even remotely understand how the basics of mathematics of eigenvalues will put them in prison.
And no, this isn't a slight on Trumps counting system, or the US election at all. It's a swipe at the intelligence of people who gather in large groups, not wearing masks, during a pandemic that appears to be getting worse, and attempt to storm a building that is going to be well and truly covered in armed, trained security as well as cameras ...
TBH, it's a miracle that any of them survived.

Simpler still professional courtesy. On duty goons with badges and guns normally give their off duty brethren every benefit of the doubt. And ya'llquada wasn't quite ' the police' enough to get the message that they weren't on the same side that day through their helmets and face shields.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Make that christian white skin. You did see those T-shirts? Also, in very many, perhaps the majority, of cases, the BLM marchers were heavily if not mainly white. Certainly following Floyd's murder.
However - I propose a different thing altogether.
Just "whose side are you on?" and how that reflects in the mentality of the police force(s) as a whole. I don't don't the crackdown may have come sooner if the rioters "didn't look like me" from the cop's point of view. Or better, "vote like me". (I used the first version as an attempt at the irony of the incredible racism the first statement implies - and it's acceptable for "some people" to use such expressions). Sides may, certainly in urban areas, lay upon a racial divide.
They had plenty of warning so perhaps we need fall back onto occam's razor and go for the simple solution: it was allowed to happen not because of anything racial but purely political.
Now, of course, let's add to he fire: a perceived show of strength by the far right or as a mechanism to disgrace them by the far left? Conspiracy theories - egalitarian reality !

You don't need the qualifier "not wearing masks" in there; people gathering in large groups during a global pandemic are displaying all the intelligence of a tuna sandwich.
Because, you see, masks limit the amount of infection sprayed into the air, it doesn't remove it completely, so having a few hundred people gathered together with masks on is not that much better than a few hundred people without masks on.
What made you think these people were intelligent? There was a video on UK news this morning of a woman who seemed surprised and hurt that she had been maced and pushed out, after forcing her way into the building.
It's pointless to waste the manpower identifying and tracking these people down. Remember when BLM were looting stores and burning whole neighbourhoods to the ground, storming police stations and setting them on fire with people still inside? When they were caught they were simply let free right away to continue peacefully protesting the very next night.
So my JSON code that was optimized for RAM use rather than speed is keeping up with simdjson's nearest competitor (Mison notwithstanding since it's still a research project)
I have only done one major optimization ultimately for speed although the way my JSON parser works, it's pretty speedy by nature.
But some of the things it does, like highly selective skipping through a document or even front loading the parser with requests can speed up simdjson. So I'm incorporating ideas from my code into simdjson's codebase as a proof of concept to (edit: i hope!) make simdjson even faster than it is now. Hacking simdjson's stage 1 processing is crazy.
It's fun. I don't know what I'm doing. That's part of the joy of it. I'm totally in above my head, and eager because I know by the time I'm done I won't be. That enormous challenge therefore, presents enormous opportunity.
