DNC in photos: An impromptu Monday night protest

Posted By on Tue, Sep 4, 2012 at 2:21 PM

Demonstrators marched around the city late Monday night trailed by a force of police on foot, in patrol cars, on motorcycles, on bicycles and in a helicopter. Marchers chanted a variety of chants as they marched, including, "Fuck the Police!," and "This is what a police state looks like," while yelling at passersby various things, mostly focused on their tax dollars being wasted on the gigantic police force that was mirroring the marchers every step.

"This is pretty unscripted, " said marcher Eric Verlo as he marched down the street. Verlo, who came to the DNC from Colorado, said he came to protest against "two corporate parties that represent the same thing."
