Three hours after falling asleep following protests in #RVA, I’m awoken by the loudest bangs I’ve ever heard. Don’t worry is just a building collapsing - on purpose. See our livestream. Sounds as though helicopter is still circling city this morning https://t.co/ctHSJv8evb

"Gonna let it burn." Richmond Fire is reporting another fire near downtown Dunkin Donuts, a few blocks from where the public transit bus was aflame. Firefighters told to stay in their engines due to approaching "armed" protestors. "Hold your position."

This is ref to the GRTC bus that was set ablaze, so timely. Forgive my snide remark earlier. https://t.co/6c3OqrRMjl

On the walk home a car of guys stopped us and asked “Where’s the riot?”

Phone died. Hobbled home - I broke the first rule of cover protest: wear comfortable shoes. They were practical - rain boots, but ouchy.

Just saw @NBC12 SUV with a tagged windshield parked on Broad Street.

Just passed a car on Broad blasting Childish Gambino’s “this is America.”

Still going strong at 1% battery. Car just did a bunch of donuts in the intersections at Broad and N. Adams. Crowds cheer. Didn’t get video
