Unfair to anarchists

It’s a real disservice to use anarchists as a synonym for rioters and looters, as some of The Chronicle’s coverage of the reaction in Oakland to the Mehserle verdict has done. Anarchism is a political philosophy providing the foundation for several social movements. Many anarchists want to abolish large national government and instead build a society of small, self-governing, non-authoritarian, peaceful communities. The website of the Bay Area National Anarchists ( www.bayareanationalanarchists.com) called for restraint and discourse as appropriate responses to the verdict.

Why besmirch a legitimate philosophy and political movement when the word you really want is vandals?
