    I went from work to go the rally. I like Trump, I'm not hardcore. I was dressed business casual and went to see the Trump phenomenon, like a sociology observation.
    I exited off Kennedy onto Racine. The UIC Pavillion is top of the short exit ramp. I sat there for 30 minutes until 5:50 (event started at 6:00). I never saw so many police vehicles, some militarized ones I've never seen. The sound of helicopters overhead was constant. Cops were shoulder to shoulder, two deep. Blue and red lights everywhere. Finally I was directed to move, but back over the highway. A big sign (later shredded) was mounted on the overpass saying "grow balls or go home." On the other side were a shitload of Mexican protestors chanting and blocking the road. They'd later join arms and advance down the overpass I was on, shutting down the road. Cops used the directional audio siren which was defeating. I was diverted 12 blocks away, almost to the Loop. I got lucky and parked, getting close to the arena at 6:36. The crowd was thick as people were exiting the arena. Then shit popped.
    I swear, the air reeked on hatred and violence. It was every ethnic group yelling at each other, clustered off. I'd say the crowd was 2/3 minority, at least those hanging out. They were all like, "Chicago stumped Trump," etc. verbal attacks, shoving, etc. we whites and Trump supporters quietly nodded at each other. The protestors were stirring shit up. I spent a good amount of time there. I saw a big white guy boldly carrying a Trump size overhead. He was swarmed, kept marching, got the sign torn, then a big dude in a "black defiance" shirt popped him.
    I was walking into a "Muslim area" and a little old white woman warned me, "if you're not with them, go the other way. People are getting assaulted here."
    Just walking around, helicopters chopping away, lights flashing, sirens wailing, cop cars speeding down he highway for support, the smell of cop horses shitting all over, torn shit everywhere, screams, all crazy. You'd hear a roar somewhere, the crowd circle, dudes are fighting, police run in. Everywhere are cell phones, cameras, reporters. Like everyone, I got shoved around walking quietly through the crowd.
    The ages, races, demographics, etc were mixed. But everyone was so angry. It was unbelievable. I just need to sit and process it. It really makes me think differently about people and my beloved Chicago.
    Any questions?

    Do you think any of them actually knew what they were so worked up about?

    Sounds like a big, beautiful melting pot of ideas and insanity. God, I love this country!

    Glad you're ok man.

    Be honest, what were the demographics of the violent/scary protestors? I suspect I know the answer of the ones who were actually behaving in a criminal fashion.

    Btw, good to know mexican protestors are anti a guy that wants laws enforced. Its great to see the direction of our country that took in the tired, hungry, and poor, and is now getting back from the same group nothing but heartache.

    Lots of signs. One with a backwards swastika, Spanish curse words, black power stuff, Bernie sanders sign. One shirt for sale saying Hilkary sucks harder than Monica.
    Like the news said, I believe some were pro protestors. A huge Spanish group was advocating something.
    The Chicago news was carrying his all week, hyping the danger.
    I just sensed a lot of frustration and anger. This was the outlet.

    My first question is do you need help moving out of that shit hole of a city?

    My second question is when will they change the name of Chicago to "Detroit West"?

    it was, but sadly so, so, so segregated. It was like the royal rumble, each race against each other

    Glad you're OK MD.

    I always feel relatively safe in my city at large events... it must be unnerving to not feel that way anymore so close to home.

    Thanks for the on the site info. Looked crazy on tv.

    I'm a suburban guy! Keep out of the south side and it's all good.
    I'm surprised if nobody gets killed.

    Seriously though @MilkyDischarge, I'm glad you got out unscathed. Thanks for the first person report. You said it was going to be nuts and you nailed it.

    i got nervous when I was surrounded by non-whites. Not like me, but in that mood it was unnerving.

    2/3 of the protestors were minorities, to be honest. The white trump supporters quietly gave each other thumbs up and hid their t shirts.
