Like with the “gilet jaune” it depends on who you believe is offering the truth and who you believe is telling the truth depends on which side of the fence you sit on.

I’d certainly be worried about someone behind a wall attacking or stabbing someone.
There was the black conservative journalist who got stabbed in portland by a “protester”
perhaps some people are journalists and perhaps some people aren’t. In these sort of situations (especially wearing helmets and masks, it’s hardly easy to stop each person and have a detailed look and make a decision on the quality and merits of a persons video capturing equipment.
