“Joe Biden says ANTIFA is an ‘idea'” she writes. “Don’t believe your lying eyes. These are not domestic terrorists – people who took selfies in the Capitol building.”

Owens shared a video of a fire allegedly occurred outside an Apple store on Friday night in Portland as protesters protested the deaths of detention police Daunte Wright and Adam Toledo.

Portland police declared the protest “riot” as a group of protesters set fires and smashed windows of businesses, a church and the Oregon History Association, according to The Oregonian.

Several hundred people paraded through the area and started vandalizing and robbing businesses, the police said on Saturday.

Violent conflict broke out in Chicago, NYC and Minnesota at Black Lives Matter protesting police shooting and killing Adam Toledo and Daunte Wright.

Thousands of people had peacefully gathered across America to protest against the police yesterday, but as night fell, tensions intensified.

Dozens of people were arrested and some were injured after clashes between BLM protesters and police.

Demonstrators gathered at Logan Square Park, Chicago, to demand justice for Adam Toledo, a 13-year-old boy shot dead by police on March 29.

Protests started around 6pm, with demonstrators marching and closing the six-corner intersection of Milwaukee, Diversey and Kimball at around 7:30 p.m.

Many said they were protesting to demand police reforms and Mayor Lori Lightfoot resigned, arguing that the current system is not working.

When the event ended around 10 p.m., a small group of protesters began clashing with police officers.

The protests started all over Chicago after Bodycam footage of Toledo’s death was released on Thursday.

Toledo was shot dead in an alley after fleeing from police around 2:30 a.m. on March 29.

Clashes also erupted at the Brooklyn Center in Minneapolis where 20-year-old Daunte Wright was shot dead on Sunday.

Nearly 1,000 people gathered in front of the city police headquarters at 9 o’clock last night, Star Tribune report.

The protest was peaceful at first, but became tense in the evening with a speaker leaving a message to the police officers, saying: “We will make their lives miserable every night. “

Protesters demanded fees for former Minnesota police officer Kimberly Potter who shot Wright last week.

According to the report, the police began deploying lightning blasts to disperse the crowd, some of whom had shielded with umbrellas.

Pepper spray was also used against some protesters after the protest was declared an illegal gathering.

About 100 people were arrested last night after clashes, KSTP report.
