But overall, things were peaceful compared to the complete chaos unfolding across the nation. More than 200 people are charged with rioting in Washington, D.C. We’re talking everything from setting a limo on fire to attacking police officers.
“National and local news stations captured images of this small group of protesters throwing rocks and bricks at our officers,” D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham said. “Currently, we are aware of six M.P.D officers that sustained injuries. Three of those were injuries to the head area as a result of being struck by flying objects.”
Thankfully, the officers are expected to be okay.
It’s your prerogative to protest, but this is just a mess, y’all.
