On the fourth night of protests, a video went viral of what appears to be four children standing in a line, wearing military apparel, and holding riot shields in Atlanta. Two of the older minors also appear to be holding batons. On social media, it was alleged the city deployed the children. But it remains unclear if the children, who appear to be varying in age, were deployed by an entity or if they were acting of their own volition.

We live in some strange times.
