I wonder what kind of criminals they are attempting to try at the court house, and what happens if it gets burnt down. do they keep evidence there? people traffickers set free due to lost evidence?

As per Wikipedia 28 people murdered in mostly peaceful protests so far and NYT mentions one of them. that's actually pretty good for NYT
