Make offenders at mass protests pay the cost of policing it

The tax payers should not be made to foot the bill for policing of mass demonstrations.

Anyone who is convicted of a criminal offense at a protest should have the cost of policing the demonstration divided amongst them and be forced to pay it in the same way student loans are pursued (although with a lower threshold for repayment).

Although I support the rights of any group to hold a demonstration, I do not think that the tax payer should foot the bill for policing any criminal element.
