Washington, DC [CapitalWirePR] - Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered another city wide curfew starting early this evening, Monday, at 7pm, through 6am on Tuesday morning. In addition, she has activated the DC National Guard to assist the Metropolitan Police Department in maintaining peaceful order and assist the police.  Over 80 arrests have been made by the District's MPD during the protests. MPD investigative units are now pursuing vandals caught on film or identified by protestors as perpetrators. Further arrests are expected.

Apparently, the presence of approximately 2,000 to 3,000 protestors, a large contingent of which were African-American, has left Trump extremely agitated and frightened.  Last night, President Trump turned out the White House lights and fled to the basement bunker with his family. Usually the exterior lights are turned off only to mourn a President's passing.

No legislative reforms to police practices or accountability were announced by the current President today.
