In a discussion about the chaos at last weekend's Nevada state Democratic convention, Bernie Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver told CNN that "no one had a right to feel threatened" at the event. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) was booed offstage during her keynote speech at the convention, and told CNN that she had feared for her safety. Weaver claimed the reports of a violent atmosphere had been overblown by the media. 

Is Weaver right to say officials should not have felt threatened at the convention?

"No one had the right to feel threatened," Weaver said. "What happens is when you rig the process, and you get an angry crowd, you know they're not used to that."  Weaver did say the booing and catcalls were "uncalled for."

This was shared on Facebook. It seems like the "nays" had the vote. But it went forward regardless - perhaps adding to the chaos.
To give a little color to the scene on the ground.
Many argued the evidence and eyewitnesses contradicted Weaver.
Others had real problems with his language.
Some commenters just didn't believe claims that the environment at the convention was threatening.
Some felt the intimidation discussion was just a distraction from the real issues of the DNC.
