Police spray demonstrators as tensions rise in D.C. protests

13 August 2018

Police and demonstrators clashed on the sidelines of a white nationalist rally in the heart of Washington, Sunday .Police spraied  the demonstrators to quell the violence.

 Sunday's events were a far cry from the street brawls that broke out in downtown Charlottesville a year ago, when a local woman was killed by a man who drove his car into a crowd of counterprotesters. "Unite the Right 2" had been denied a permit in Charlottesville this year, but did secure one for Washington.
