Not a good sign…

Protests ramped up Friday morning in the nation’s capital ahead of the inauguration festivities for Donald Trump, with tensions flaring after a night of turbulent demonstrations that included police in riot gear and the use of pepper spray.

As the inauguration got underway, violence erupted in the city’s downtown about five blocks from the parade route. Protesters threw rocks at glass storefronts, including a Starbucks and banks, and clutched hammers and bricks, witnesses told NBC News.
