On Aug. 22, 2017 Donald Trump held a "rally" inside the Phoenix Convention Center. Outside thousands of protestors peacefully conducted their action until police opened fire on them with tear gas, pepper spray, and rubber bullets. The Hobo Dispatch was there to witness the action as shown in this short video.

Also of note were the presence of two armed militia factions, one pro-Trump and for the first time I'm aware of an anti-Trump armed group showed up. Finally the video shows Dwight Metzger of Tucson's Gloo Factory who showed up with his peace supplies, etc. booth and bravely set up at ground zero of the protest. When police began gassing the crowd Dwight and his coworkers had to flee but fortunately they were able to recover their supplies later.
