"Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested Friday after a morning of peaceful protests and coordinated disruptions of Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony gave way to ugly street clashes in downtown Washington." There is to many people getting hurt by this stupid little things. Your children should not be brought into this. Police officers that are getting injured are there to protect their community. At least two DC police officers and one other person were taken to the hospital after run-ins with protesters, (DC Fire Spokesman Vito Maggiore told CNN). Acting DC Police Chief Peter Newsham said the officers' injuries were considered minor and not life threatening. Anti-Trump protests also broke out Friday in US cities, including New York, Seattle, Dallas, Chicago and Portland, Oregon. Authorities in Seattle say one person was in critical condition at a hospital with a gunshot wound. Demonstrations also took place overseas in Hong Kong, Berlin and London. Their shouting made it difficult for those seated nearby -- including former campaign staffers and volunteers, as well as Trump's ex-wife Ivana Trump -- to hear Trump utter the words that officially made him the 45th President of the United States. Just because Trump has made mistakes in the past he is our president and no one can change that. Thousands of people attended a Women's March in Martin Place in the central part of the city. Event organizers claimed nearly 5,000 people attended the march, but Sydney police estimate that the number was closer to 3,000.
That all seems positively quaint compared to the throngs of protesters who descended almost instantly upon the nation’s airports this weekend in response to news that customs officials were detaining refugees and other immigrants. In Birmingham alone, some 1,000 people RSVPed on Facebook to attend the Birmingham Rally for Refugees and Immigrants after getting just a few hours notice. The same phenomenon played out in cities and small towns across the country.
