Chicago Police Release Video: Protesters Attack Officers with Sharpened PVC Pipes, Fireworks

The Chicago Police Department released a video on Monday showing a protest turn violent at Chicago’s Columbus Park Friday night. The video appears to show coordination, with agitators changing from plain clothes into all-black as the rest of the crowd hides them from view. The video also shows police being ambushed with sharpened PVC pipes and an officer’s eye being damaged after an incendiary device explodes on the ground beside him.
