This will be a really short diary. Someone just sent me a video, taken from I believe a cell phone around 8:45 PM tonight. The video speaks for itself. I would have posted this in a comment but I think, with all the confusion of what is currently occurring, people need to see this.
As I said, the video speaks for itself.
Update- On the Youtube page for this video, it now says
This video has been age-restricted based on our Community Guidelines. If this too violent for Youtube, it should not be happening to our citizens..
