Washington, DC-More than 50 Secret Service Uniformed Division officers and special agents were injured near the White House and authorities were searching for car bombs late Sunday as protests over the death of George Floyd continued to roil the capital just two days after President Trump had to be taken to a bunker for his safety.
A senior official in the direct chain of command for defending Washington D.C. reported the injuries to Secret Service officers and agents. The officers and agents were injured when protesters threw “projectiles such as bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items,” according to a statement made by the Secret Service. “Personnel were also directly physically assaulted as they were kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids.” U.S. Marshals and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents were deployed to the streets of D.C. alongside local police and Homeland Security agents, including the Secret Service.
Additionally, the entire Washington, D.C. National Guard was being called in to help with the response to protests outside the White House and elsewhere in the nation’s capital.
An hour before the 11 p.m. curfew in D.C., police fired tear gas stun grenades into the crowd of more than 1,000 people, largely clearing Lafayette Park across the street from the White House and scattering protesters into the street.
Lights that illuminate the exterior of the White House were disabled early Monday morning, so that the Secret Service could use night-vision equipment to monitor protesters.

Philadelphia-Thirteen police officers have been injured and 14 arrests were made after George Floyd protests turn violent.
The officers’ injuries range from chemical burns to sprains.
“I have never seen a group of people have more restraint, putting up with what they put up with — spit at, bottles thrown at them, urine thrown at them, caustic agents and balloons thrown in their eyes,” Mayor Jim Kenney said about Philadelphia police officers.
Police and protestors began to clash Saturday afternoon and multiple police vehicles were set on fire.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said there were approximately 3,000 demonstrators. Some gathered on Center City and began committing numerous acts of vandalism to include setting police cars on fire.
A mandatory curfew went into effect at 8 p.m. and lasts until 6 a.m. Sunday.
“The peaceful protests earlier were touching showings of our collective grief. The anger being displayed now cannot continue. Please have respect and dignity for each other and return home,” Kenney said.

Baltimore-Baltimore police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who they believe shot a police officer Tuesday night.
During a news conference, Police Commissioner Michael Harrison identified the suspect as 28-year-old Antonio Oliver Janifer. Janifer should be considered armed and dangerous.
Police said Officer Joshua Jackson saw a car that was driving erratically when he tried to initiate a traffic stop. The driver of the vehicle fled, crashed, then got out of the car and shot Jackson.
Jackson was shot in the line of duty on Light Street in Federal Hill. Harrison said Jackson did not fire his weapon. Jackson’s bulletproof vest most-likely saved his life. He was released from Shock Trauma on Wednesday.
"He has a history of violence and is a repeat violent offender who should have never been out on the streets of Baltimore," Harrison said.
If anyone has information on the whereabouts of Janifer, they are urged to contact police immediately.
A foot chase isn’t so bad these days if it lands you a chance to star on TV.
Officer Parker who has been dubbed "Chase Man" garnished national attention when he was captured chasing down a suspect on live TV, however that isnt the big story here.
In late 2018 after his footchase, Parker was contacted to star in a new TV series hosted by NFL brothers JJ, TJ, and Derek Watt. There was a lot of contemplation as to whether he should go or not, because he didn’t feel like he deserved to be on the big screens. Parker said, ‘I’m just a guy from a small town. I don’t deserve this". Parker decided to go with his gut, and off to Hollywood he went.
Parker has a touching story behind him that many people don’t know. In a recent post from his facebook he stated, “I’m the product of a broken home. A single mother with 6 kids. I'm a fatherless product of the ghettos and slums. As well as the not so ghettos. I took experience from both and applied the knowledge as needed. Yes I'm African American. Yes I rose above my situation. Stop making excuses for why something is the way it is and start making changes. I have never doubted that some bad things have happened, but in the now and in this moment, I'm focused on our push into the future. “
One thing that has never changed with Officer Parker is that he is persistent and has always worked towards his dream. He’s now known for inspiring people through social media. He has always said, ‘I want the world to hear me and now that they are listening, and I have to tell them the story.’
The show named "Ultimate Tag" is a high-octane physical competition based on the classic playground game of tag, co-hosted by NFL superstar sibling trio J.J., T.J. and Derek Watt . Each week, competitors - who are everyday citizens and not professional athletes - vault, dodge, tumble and dive over various epic, three-dimensional moving courses, with one simple goal: Don't get caught. As competitors progress, they are challenged to take on even more extreme courses and earn points for their performance in each heart-pounding game.
The game show is set to air May, 20 2020 at 10pm EST.

Los Angeles-Inmates at the Los Angeles County Jail are trying to infect themselves with the coronavirus so they could be released early.
Last month, groups inside of the North County Correctional Facility in Castaic, CA were drinking from the same water bottle, and were using the one face mask before passing it to the next guy according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department who released footage surveillance on Monday.
The county has had 357 positive tests among inmates and that had tripled since the end of April. They previously released some inmates in response to concerns regarding the pandemic.
“It’s sad to think that someone deliberately tried to expose themselves to covid-19,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said at the Monday news conference. “Somehow there was some mistaken belief among the inmate population that if they tested positive that there was a way to force our hand and somehow release more inmates out of our jail environment — and that’s not going to happen.” He added, “It’s dismaying and disheartening.”
While it’s unclear if inmates at North County Correctional Facility knew someone was sick when they were sharing water and a mask, the surveillance footage captured groups ignoring social distancing in an effort to try to get the coronavirus, the sheriff said.
