A Ku Klux Klan rally  erupted into violence on "Saturday in Anaheim, California resulting in three people stabbed and some 13 other arrested according to Anaheim authorities.

Scores of counter-protesters arrived to protest the presence of several men dressed in black clothing with Confederate flag patches who had planned on conducting a demonstration in a park there. In just seconds, brawling broke out as the crowd rushed the KKK members, and three people were stabbed, all counter-protesters. One of the weapons used by the Klansmen was a flag pole.

It appears that during this time of political activity the reported cases of civil disobedience has increased. I wonder if there is any connection?
