After President Donald Trump’s swearing-in ceremony, demonstrators congregated and began protesting in the streets of Washington, D.C. CNN reported that demonstrators near 12th and K streets NW threw rocks and bottles at riot gear-clad police. Since the protests began, 95 protestors have been arrested and two police officers have been injured.
Acting DC Police Chief Peter Newsham told CNN that the protests have been “very isolated” and “by and large everything is going peacefully.” Despite being isolated, the incident has resulted in shattered building windows, vandalized cars, and the police’s use of pepper spray.
