Mayor And Police Chief Say Agitators Infiltrating DC Protests

DC police took around 70 people into custody over the weekend as protesters took to the streets in DC.   Mayor Bowser says the violence in those protests was the work of outside agitators. Some have been arrested and identified, but the mayor says more help needs to come from the federal government.  10 officers were hurt during the weekend protests. Police chief Peter Newshum says the reactions of officers is understandable when they are hit with bricks, glass and bags of urine.  Newshum says most of the people arrested at the protests don’t live in DC.
