They're upset about this:

The group tweeted, "The absurdly high bail amounts indicate that what we’re seeing is not a measured pursuit of justice but a politically motivated attack on the movement for police reform and accountability."

Well, taking this into consideration:

Twelve adults have been charged with criminal conspiracy for arson, riot, institutional vandalism, failure to disperse, obstructing highways and other public passages, disorderly conduct, and defiant trespass. Nine of them had their bails set at $1 million. One of the 12 faced an additional charge of illegal possession of a firearm. According to police, at least eight of those charged are not Lancaster residents.

Let them rot in jail. Their arson and rioting is a politically motivated disturbance. The 8 who don't even live there should be tarred and ridden out of town on a rail.

Multiple of them had firearms too, but as the article mentions only one is receiving a firearm charge.

True, but their possession could have been legal. I'd say ill-advised and suspicious, though. If a demonstrator does have bad intentions, why would he need a gun?

I'd settle for dipping them in tar and sending them on their way.

Edit: That should have read, "If a demonstrator doesn't have bad intentions, why would he need a gun." I miss adding an "n't" so often I could scream.
