This is not protesting, this is rioting. The MSM might not be able to tell the difference but we can. Rioters burned waste canisters and newspaper dispensers, then threw the embers at police. These people make us sick.
Voice of America correspondent Steve Herman posted an image on Twitter showing rioters encircling a street fire, saying that he had witnessed rioters picking up embers and throwing them at police, prompting authorities to call for backup from the DC fire department.
