The New York Times said the following about the mostly ‘peaceful’ protests against incoming President-Elect Donald Trump:
Most of the gatherings have remained peaceful, but tempers have flared sporadically. Demonstrators burned trash cans in Oakland on Wednesday night, and tried to block a highway on Thursday before the police intervened. In Portland on Thursday night, one marcher was shot, according to local reports. And after the protest there thinned out, dozens of people the police described as anarchists remained in the streets, clashing with officers. Car windows were smashed and smoke filled the air during what the police deemed a riot.
It seems a bit jaded to declare that the majority of protests were peaceful, while only dedicating one paragraph to significant property damage and disturbances in Portland, Oregon and Oakland, California.
