    Police injured, more than 200 arrested at Trump inauguration protests


    Washington (CNN)Six police officers were injured and 217 protesters arrested after they smashed windows, damaged cars and threw rocks at police near Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony on Friday in Washington.

    At least two DC police officers and one other person were taken to the hospital for undetermined injuries after run-ins with protesters, DC Fire Spokesman Vito Maggiolo told CNN.
    Acting DC Police Chief Peter Newsham said all of the injuries to police officers are considered minor and non-life threatening but three of those officers were injured in the head.
    After the swearing-in ceremony, demonstrators near 12th and K streets threw rocks and bottles at police, who were clad in riot gear and attempting to disperse the crowd. A large number of police were on scene and used smoke and flash-bang devices to try to scatter the protesters.
    Newsham told CNN that there were several hundred protesters who were confronting police, while he praised the thousands of other demonstrators who behaved in a peaceful fashion to get their point across.

    Imagine if this happened in another, we would be seeing articles about dictatorship and human rights.

    This was a small protest yet many were arrested. Double standards....

    Not only articles. We should see bandgroups of "Democratic opposition", "Free American Army", "Humanitarian Bombing", "Committee of USA friends", etc... As you sow, you can mow.
