Is a paragraph is missing in this NYT piece?
Usually, an NYT leak piece starts with "$thing happpened, according to people familiar with it who asked not to be named for $reasons". Not so here.
In para #4, it goes "[more stuff], the people said... [even more stuff], the people said". What people? The other "people" uses are #16, "... according to the people familiar with the inquiry," and
#21, "according to people familiar with their thinking."
Unlike traditional social networks, Scuttlebutt has no servers. Members store all their personal data on their own computer or phone, and connect directly to their friends' devices in order to update statuses. Scuttlebutt also works offline.
It's currently available on @fdroidorg and Google Play. (Note it's still in beta and many features are missing.)

"The prefect of Paris, Michel Delpuech, said at a news conference late Sunday that the police had been faced with “extreme and unprecedented violence” and that protesters had thrown hammers and steel ball bearings at them."
Dude I'm not a history expert but I'm pretty sure if you look hard you can find some precedent for violent protesters in the streets of Paris.
