    There are reports tonight that shots may have been fired at the Trump rally in Albuquerque. Police say that there is no confirmation that shots were fired, but Tweets are reporting that protesters threw rocks at police and one person selling items outside the rally had his table set on fire.

    Currently, reporters are being held from exiting the building.



    The beginning of the protest:

    Dozens of Mexican flags. I've got CNN on. It looks like a declaration of war.

    This behavior is encouraged by the United States president.

    In fact, Barack Obama was mentored by Bill Ayers, who organized the riot which shut down Trump's Chicago event.

    Edit: Watching live, there is no protesting. They are just destroying things at this point. Waving Mexican flags, Mexican flag masks, and destroying property.

    Obviously the people doing it think it's OK. Their actions show it. They don't need to say it.

    People are already blaming Bernie for this.

    They certainly are not helping matters by protesting like this, thats for sure

    Saw some asshole in a truck burning his tires for a good 40 seconds in the middle of the crowd.

    Now a guy on CNN is saying this is a perfect opportunity for Cankles to repeat her new "Stronger Together" catch phrase. :jj:

    Each attack on these events will help Donald Trump's poll numbers, but I've never been an "ends justifies the means" guy. I'd rather not see police officers getting their faces bashed in with bottles.

    These riots are officially organized and law enforcement should infiltrate the groups involved... before their little "Long Hot Summer" that they keep bragging about.

    There's a well-funded and organized attack planned on the GOP convention and Cleveland police say they aren't prepared.

    You can tell which protests are officially organized and which aren't. This one in New Mexico is clearly professional.

    "Reports of shots fired unfounded...." "But police confirm damaged windows from pellet gun."

    So there were in fact shots fired.
