From Yahoo News:

Two officers were injured Saturday night as a California protest over police killings turned violent with protesters smashing windows and throwing rocks and bricks at police, who responded by firing tear gas, authorities said.

Several officers were struck, but there were just two reports of injury, Berkeley police spokeswoman Jenn Coats said. A Berkeley police officer received hospital treatment for a dislocated shoulder after being hit with a sandbag, while another sustained minor injuries.

The demonstration against police killings of unarmed black men in Missouri and New York began peacefully, the latest of several in the Bay Area in recent days. But Coats said that a some protesters later broke away and began throwing rocks, bottles and pipes at officers.

Dozens of law officers from several surrounding agencies joined Berkeley police in trying to quell the unrest.

She said several businesses on University Avenue were vandalized and damaged, including Trader Joe’s, Radio Shack and a Wells Fargo Bank branch.

I’m sure Mike Brown is proud somewhere.
