Bike cops press in on the march, shield bloc and own bikes protecting rear of march

The march began on BLM Plaza, with a front line under umbrellas to block hostile cameras behind the leading bikes. A shield bloc joined in shortly after this

,

At one point, protesters descended on 3D. This lead to cops shoving and assaulting protesters

Typical MPD fake kettle, this one on U st shortly after the incident at 3d. Only way to tell fake from real kettle is to advance into it to move the march, or try to leave by going right through the cops

Three Takoma Park police cruisers behind the march, they seemed to be unable to get and stay ahead of the march as it snake marched rom street to street

DC and Metro cops as the march built up. You can see the K-9 marking one on one of the MPD cars. This was probably where the barking dog was caged.

Cops retreated from the march, emptying streets of most civilians in the process. Same as 2014-2015 tactic used against BLM marches

This must have been too wet for DC's bike cops, but not for protest bikers

,

It wasn't too wet for fireworks either. If cops in MN (and DC too in the past) can fire flashbangs, protesters can use loud bangy things too

Not all the cops wore masks. While it is legal not to wear a mask on a bike, these bike cops are too close to oneanother for that

Is THIS how Biden, Bowser, the National Guard, and MPD plan to respond to street protests if Chauvin is acquitted? (Photo edited using GIMP to "update" that infamous Trump scene on H st.)

Many times this place has been a battlefield

This also will be the fate of the Dakota Access Pipeline, Enbridge Line 3, Mountain Valley Pipeline, and all of the many Black Snakes in this world!
