    I don't know where this is. But the thugs are throwing bricks at the police. And then some other thugs yell peaceful process. Been going on like this for at least 30 minutes, live youtube stream, currently 2:10pm Eastern time, 1/20/17

    Edited: Seemed to be over by 2:30pm. Police were well organized and effective :)

    Protests were anticipated.

    Bring it on rejects. You'd better recognize that the rules have changed.

    What looks like a NG soldier just pulled out his radio and got on it.

    Bring in the troops!!!

    When I first started watching, the camera was from within the protestors/rioters. I saw them grabbing bricks and smashing them in half, and then picking them up and throwing at the police. All the while, some women seemed to be yelling at the police that it was a peaceful protest. NOT.

    Those throwing bricks obviously didn't care if they hit police or if they hit other protestors, or whoever happened to be in the way of the trajectories they were launching.

    I love the losers holding their phones up and videoing the scene.

    I just watched some very cool video with a few Guardsman running through a police line. They were running in the direction the police line was not facing. Then a few second later they showed some Guardsmen in a Humvee. They stopped and picked up two newspaper vending boxes that appeared to be in the street.

    Riveting. Absolutely riveting.

    For someone who remembers the protests of the late 60's, this is ... anticlimactic.

    Now 2:30pm, and the rioting/violence part of the protest seems to be over or under control. For now anyway :)

    MSNBC is publicizing this more than either FOX or FNC.

    Getting their money's worth.

    They tried to create a burning road-block with some newspaper boxes and a trash can that they lit on fire. There was some dooshbag with a big video camera getting a nice close up shot of this tiny little burning pile on this massive, wide intersection.
