Vice President Mike Pence took a moment of out his Republican VP speech to demand law and order and bash the protesters that have taken to the streets after another unarmed Black man, Jacob Blake, was shot by police.

To make matters worse, the protests last night ended with two dead after an armed 17-year-old supporter of President Donald Trump took the call for "law and order" to heart and killed two people.

But as Pence was shaming the protesters and demanding "order," the protests were winding down after a peaceful night without incident. Unlike previously, the police didn't rush the protesters at the curfew. Instead, that stayed back, and everything came to a close without any more death. The crowd is currently peacefully marching.
