Violence Breaks Out In Washington D.C. As Protesters Clash With Police
Some violence has broken out in Washington, DC, after the Inauguration, as police guarding the Parade route have been attempting to keep crowds of protestors, some of whom have smashed windows and set some fires in the street, away from the parade route. About a hundred protestors have been arrested and pepper spray, tear gas and flash bangs have been used by police. By no means are the majority of protestors being violent. It is a small contingent that is being violent. Police seem to have the situation well under control, at present.
A limousine, parked in front of the Washington Post building, was covered in graffiti and set afire. See this video.
