While continuing to watch one of the live feeds we had up in the all day Inauguration thread, the coverage went to the streets of DC, where a reporter got caught up in the midst of violent protesters facing off with police. Law enforcement has arrested about 25 people in this one area already for vandalism and rioting, then brought out the rubber bullets, pressure grenades and pepper spray as they attempt to bring these protesters who the majority of which showed up after President Trump was inaugurated.
Refresh often, updates continue to be added.
The short clip from the live feed I am still watching is shown below, the live feed beneath that, where the chaos on the streets of DC is shown about 5 and a half hours after the live feed began.
The pressure grenades and such shown in the live feed below, which covers a variety of events happening throughout the day, from parades to protests, and other videos below that show the violences occurring in other parts of DC. The reporter informs us that the protesters are from the #DusruptJ20 and they are throwing bottles and rocks at the police, attempting to incite more violence.

AP reports that at one point police chased a group of about 100 protesters who smashed the windows of downtown businesses including a Starbucks, Bank of America and McDonald’s as they denounced capitalism and Trump. Police in riot gear used pepper spray from large canisters and eventually cordoned off the protesters.
