The chaos has already started, he’s only been the President elect for a few days and people are losing their minds already. Anti-Trump protestors were out in force in Oakland to show their dismay at the result and it soon got out of hand after fights broke out and a man was left hospitalised after being brutally attacked by four men.
Photojournalist Kyle Ludowitz was out there covering the event when the gang turned on him leaving him with a fractured cheekbone, abrasions and $5000 worth of damage to his equipment.
‘I was mostly being punched in the face until I fell to the ground. I tried to protect my gear and they started kicking,’ said Mr Ludowitz
Mr Ludowitz said his attackers, who were anarchists wearing masks, assaulted him as he was taking photos of them looting businesses and smashing windows with rocks.
He added that he had never really experienced anything like it.
‘I went to the ER, I didn’t have a concussion but had a fractured cheekbone and a few cuts and abrasions, swelling and a fat lip,’ he said.
More than 6,000 protesters – some masked – were seen on the streets of Oakland on Wednesday night when an initially peaceful march down a cop-lined street turned nasty.
Some protesters threw bottles at officers and torched a police car, while an office block was also attacked, smeared with ‘f*** Trump’ and ‘kill Trump’ graffiti.
It reminds me of Back to the Future 2 when Marty comes back to the 80’s and finds that Biff is now in charge of Hill Valley
