Six protesters are arrested in clashes with riot cops at Richmond's Robert E. Lee statue while Seattle demonstrators vandalize another precinct and violence erupts in Portland in another night of unrest

Violent protests and civil unrest continue to sweep the US, with police clashing with demonstrators in Virginia after riots broke out in Portland and Seattle during another night of chaos.

Six people were arrested in Richmond on Friday night after protesters faced off with cops, pelting them with paintballs and other 'hard objects', police said.

Chaos broke out near the Robert E. Lee statue where a crowd of 75 to 100 people had gathered and remained at 10pm - despite grounds closing at sunset.

Richmond Police declared an unlawful assembly minutes later after protesters began to fire paintballs at officers, leaving four cops and one trooper injured.

One officer required hospital treatment after he was struck in the back of the helmet with a hard object, authorities said.

When cops started kneeling they gave rioters power to destroy. Nothing will change but only get worse for many years to come.

They're looking to create "martyrs" for their masters.

Now it's paint balls and rocks, next it's a pellet gun, then a cop fires at a shooter and the MSM swoops in to defend and memorialize the poor peaceful protester.
