The Difference Between a Protest and a Riot

First of all, it is important to understand the difference between a protest and a riot. A protest is an organized demonstration of disapproval, while a riot generally involves a disturbance of the peace with violence and overall terror inflicted on members of the public. Federal law makes it illegal to travel across state lines to participate in a riot, and it also bans anyone from inciting or aiding others who want to participate in a riot.
