    CPD on mounted horses.  Will not let them thru.  I'm sure the CPD doesn't want them crossing the Michigan Avenue bridge at Wacker because that's the gold coast business district.

    I think this is an all nighter here.

        that windows were broken at TV station -- I suspect it's ABC because they broadcast on State St.

        CBS broadcast near State St.

        Squad cars now at Randolph and Michigan.  As I said before, I'm sure that the CPD is going to try to stop them from going to that bridge on Michigan Avenue because that's the upscale Gold Coast business, high end retail shopping.

        Playground of the 1% for sure.

          Also Fox.  Protesters now being turned off of Michigan -- going west on either Madison or Randolph Streets.

            Crowds going west since Randolph.  CPD will not let them go north to the Michigan Ave bridge.

            I'm hearing copters again near my home.
