Riot Thread [Y-not]

The Food Thread should be going up soon, but there's a riot going on in Sacramento, so here's a thread for that.

It's a very confused situation, but I gather that there was a "Nazi mega rally" scheduled and that (Leftist) counter protesters started attacking anyone they suspected of being part of that protest.

I'll update this thread as things become clearer.

**Updates below the fold**


**Another update, this time from the Sacramento Bee:

At least five people were stabbed in a riot that broke out at the state Capitol Sunday between more than 150 anarchists and "anti-fascist" protestors and about 25 neo-Nazis who had gotten permission to rally on the west steps, police said.

Dozens of police in safety gear and on horseback tried to control the mayhem. There were at least five stabbings, involving victims on both sides, according to Sacramento Police Chief Sam Somers, who had officers in safety gear on scene to support CHP officers, some of them on horseback. "It's a highly volatile situation," Somers said. They have been other skinhead rallies at the Capitol, but "this time the the anarchists have taken a much more aggressive stance to wreak havoc on the city."

**Update: Seems like things are winding down.

**Footage from the scene:

**A little background on the groups involved.

First, the main rally was from the Traditionalist Working Party:

At least 100 of the counter-protesters, dressed in black, were identified as the "Black Hawks."
