Violent protesters also threw bottles of urine at police forces.
Over the weekend, counter-protesters descended on Boston to protest a so-called “free speech rally,” with left-wing Antifa extremists among the thousands who appeared. Antifa, who advocates violent ‘resistance’ to their ideological enemies, made their presence known.
Some Antifa extremists threw an American flag on the ground, before pouring lighter fluid on the banner and lighting it on fire:

“Stupid ass b**ch!” one yelled at a police officer. “B**ch! You’re supposed to be on our side!” she yelled at another, African-American police officer.
Boston Police Commissioner William Evans reported that protesters had thrown bottles full of urine at police officers. Some protesters hit their mark:
