An Antifa-planned anti-police protest in Tacoma, Washington, turned violent Sunday night. Antifa planned the rampage after a Tacoma police officer drove his cruiser through a crowd of people on Saturday night.


Antifa took to the streets of Tacoma Sunday night and began smashing windows of businesses, cars, and government buildings, according to multiple tweets posted online.

Antifa planned the protest for 9 p.m. Sunday after a Tacoma police officer injured two people while driving his police SUV through a crowd of people gathered at a street racing event, Breitbart News reported.
