CHICAGO (CBS) –Insurgents clashed several times on Saturday with police in the Loop, shutting down streets and creating traffic jams during a nearly six hour meandering march through the city.
As of 8:30 p.m., they had shut down South Michigan Avenue and were chanting, standing and sitting in the street near Roosevelt University.
They then moved down Michigan Avenue and had a standoff with police on horseback near the Art Institute–where Mrs. Obama is scheduled to hold a NATO reception on Sunday. Just past 9 p.m. they turned up Randolph, heading west. There was a brief skirmish outside the Walgreen’s at the corner of State and Randolph. Eventually, the group ended back at LaSalle and Jackson, where the march started in the mid-afternoon.
Around 7:30 p.m., a group of several hundred were seen scuffling with police outside the CBS 2 Broadcast Center at Dearborn and Washington. Several police in riot helmets let the sociapaths pass after the brief encounter.
Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said police anticipated the tactics of the revolutionaries and were responding with restraint.
“It’s like herding cats, but the cops are doing an amazing job,” he told CBS 2′s Mike Puccinelli.
A few minutes after the Washington-Dearborn confrontation, police clashed again with insurgents at Balbo and State and police were seen arresting anarchists. One combatant told CBS 2 he was trying to challenge the police line.
