KNTV-CHANNEL 11 (SAN FRANCISCO) -- The vandalism echoes what many peaceful protesters have been saying for months – they need financial help during the COVID-19 shutdowns.

But some experts say that tagging a politician’s home crosses a line.

“There’s understandable frustration out there,” said San Francisco State Associate Political Science Professor Jason McDaniel. “I think this kind of protest is an example of that, but I would try to caution people to see leaders as reflections of us. They are human – people.”
