    Around 100 protesters smashed the windows of downtown businesses in Washington, including a Starbucks, a Bank of America building, and a McDonald's.

    “They began to destroy property, throw objects at people, through windows. A large percentage of this small group was armed with crowbars and hammers,” the city's interim police chief, Peter Newsham, said, as cited by AP.
