“We allowed them to do a peaceful assembly and we would have let it ride until they turned to violence with bricks, battering some of our officers. They had shields,” Evanston police Chief Demitrous Cook said.
“So after that it was time to send a message that we’re not going to let people just come in here and tear up the City of Evanston.”

“The crowd marched into downtown Evanston, with some protesters throwing rocks and bricks at police officers, lighting fireworks in the direction of officers, pointing lasers at police officers’ eyes, and using umbrellas to cover individuals graffitiing streets, stop signs, and electric boxes, and damaging property,” a news release from Evanston Police states.
Northwestern students have been marching daily to abolish the police since October 12th.
Halloween was the most combative night of protests.
Students Came Prepared For A Riot
While parents send their children to an elite school like Northwestern, they likely don’t expect them to become radicalized.
But, that’s what has happened to these students.
The student protesters were well organized. The flyer for the Halloween event even told them to come prepared for a riot.
Here was the flyer for the riot. It tells people to come in black bloc and to bring umbrellas. The umbrellas are used to shield one another while they commit crimes like vandalism and assault. Antifa organizes at @NorthwesternU. pic.twitter.com/dz3ACxUcc3
