DENVER—Monday should bring another day of protests in downtown Denver, but they are calm, in part, because of the unusual way in which the Denver police are handling the events. Instead of leading the protesters through city streets, we found that the police are simply hanging back, literally following the groups on foot and in SUVs. In these pictures, a large group of protesters in downtown Denver, marching against the war in Iraq, walked well ahead of the police, most of whom were dressed in riot gear. At several points, the protesters moved so fast that they enveloped cars waiting at red lights. But the police did not move in, instead simply waiting to the rear, a practice that appeared to lessen the normal tensions between the two groups.
