I'm downtown but been running and filming since I got on the ground. Got knocked down by officers 227 from DHS who then shot me up as I retrieved my phone.
Here's that moment when DHS officers rush the crowd, I try to back up while still shooting, get knocked over a photographer, and if you listen closely you may hear the pepper balls shot at my phone as I retrieved it from the ground.
And here's when DHS brought their gas gun/leaf blower/insecticide sprayer out to disperse protesters. Wait for it, it's worth it.
I'm downtown right now where there's been a bit of a tense situation--it sounds like the new Ribs crew, some call them PirateRibs, has been clearing the houseless camp from near the Justice Center.
An individual was apparently down at the park when the confrontation began says they had a shotgun couches at them by someone representing PirateRibs. I spoke briefly with D'Anthony but I'm working on getting additional interviews before posting that.
Individuals in both sides yelling, engaging in profanity and threatening behavior, additionally streamers who claim to be independent are also ratcheting up the tension, I have to leave now for a previous assignment. @Claudio_Report and @1misanthrophile remain on the scene.
