Clash on Wabash

Protestors clash with Chicago police officers on Saturday, May 30, 2020. CPD retaliated by deploying multiple cans of tear gas and wielding their batons during several scuffles in the streets and alleyways. Protestors marched their way through The Loop and Lake Shore Drive just days after George Floyd was killed at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department, leaving behind a trail of glass and fire with millions of dollars in destroyed property. The day of riots will eventually end with the bridges raised over the Chicago River so officers can attempt to trap and arrest the demonstrators.
