Why do some protesters in Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement seem so hell-bent on violence? So-called 'frontliners' and 'radicals' have been called terrorists by those opposed to the protests that have been going on now for more than three months.

There are many different reasons why protests have become violent...and here are just 70 of the possible explanations. NOTE: This IS NOT meant to encourage you to become violent or destructive!
