The incident occurred in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and AP reported from the
scene. Most of the problems dealt with the anti-Klan demonstrators who
became violent. The actual Klan members were targets rather than
participants ... Somehow, though, violence against KKK members is
considered legitimate and necessary, even if the KKK people themselves
are law-abiding at the time (granted they are not always that benevolent,
but counter-hate does nothing to stop hate. Two hates does not make a right).
