Inauguration Day is supposed to be a time of unity and patriotism.
For many Americans, that was the case this morning.
For others, not so much.
Security at the inauguration has been tight but it hasn’t been able to completely stop the protests and property damage that we knew would take place.
Here’s a glimpse at some of the violence…

From IJ Review:
At an anti-Trump rally in Washington D.C., protesters gathered to yell chants in a display of rage and contempt for the incoming president Donald Trump.
The protests have even turned violent. Among the slogans shouted were “no justice, no peace” and “no racist police.”
The protesters might have wanted to get a load of the cops at the rally, whose expressions sum it all up.
The vast majority of people in our nation’s capital have behaved well and these group of detractors are clearly just looking for attention.
How much longer is this sort of behavior going to last?
How much longer will it be accepted by the media?
This kind of behavior is unacceptable regardless of what your political gripes may be.
