Out in Lancaster tonight where a small crowd has gathered in front of the police station just before 9pm. A fence (not pictured) has been installed around the building:
This guy just came up to some of the people milling about and told them that officers are scooping people up off the streets “for doing nothing.”

“I will die for anybody that’s out here, just know that,” he added as he told people to stay together.
The guy is now claiming that everyone who was picked up by police has a bail set at one million dollars.
A small group is now in front of the police station talking about demands:
There’s been a commotion out here after protesters say officers took a man off the street (can’t confirm). The man’s girlfriend says they were about to walk home and he was “snatched” up.

Very small group, but they’ve become a little fired up now.
Heard a local reporter saying she saw the incident (down the street from the station) FWIW
A verbal fight broke out between some of the protesters and a guy holding an American flag...the protesters surrounded him to block him out and chanted over him for a little:
Eventually, the situation calmed. The man and some protesters have had some seemingly productive talks tonight, although there were a few tense moments.
The protesters have pretty much left the area in front of the station tonight in Lancaster. It was a pretty peaceful evening compared to reports from Sunday.

Heading back for the night✌️Stay tuned for some updates from Philly tomorrow amid Trump’s town hall!

We’ve got a group marching out here in DC this evening. There are a lot of police officers following behind.
We’ve stopped outside a restaurant in DC and people in the crowd are shouting “out of the bar and into the streets” at people sitting outside having dinner/drinks
The crowd is now holding the intersection in front of Le Diplomate and giving speeches (no longer directed at those eating/drinking). A waiter is offering water to the crowd:

Surprise! We’re out in DC tonight covering the protests. Some of our other reporters have already seen a few assaults. Stay tuned for more coverage

Someone just put a fake Trump on the guillotine in front of the White House. There’s a piece of paper on him that says “Ticket - Fascist, Rapist, Criminal”

Super loud out here for Trump’s speech. We are at an entrance/exit area and there are cops guarding the area

Officers just came out of the courthouse (which now has a fence around it). The crowd is angry
Someone in the crowd just launched a firecracker at officers guarding the courthouse (about halfway in). Officers are responding with some crowd control munitions.
Officers are quicker to deploy crowd control munitions in Kenosha than other cities I’ve been to. The officer using the loud speaker yelled something about the leaf blower, but I couldn’t quite make it out.

Taking a walk around Kenosha right now to survey the damage from last night.

There’s a pressure washer out at the courthouse, where multiple charred garbage trucks sit.
Lots of cleanup being done out here
This is the used car business that’s been hit twice here in Kenosha. Almost every single car has been completely burned.
