What were once peaceful demonstrations in the streets of California have now turned violent, where reports are coming in detailing outlandish protesters aggressively rioting in the streets. Brietbart reports that people are throwing rocks through windows of business shops and other buildings, and some protesters are even overturning cars and igniting them all on fire. The protesters first formed after Hillary Clinton officially conceded the election via telephone to Donald Trump. Now, things are turning violent quickly in many cities of California, including Berkeley, San Francisco and Oakland.
