Cops clear BLM protesters from outside the White House with tear gas and rubber bullets...


Chaos erupted outside the White House on Saturday following another night of Black Lives Matter protests that saw police clash with demonstrators, striking them with rubber bullets and detonating stun grenades, as they moved to clear out crowds. 

Hundreds of protesters had gathered at Black Lives Matter Plaza to rally against police brutality and racial injustice, following another week of unrest triggered by the police shooting of black man Jacob Blake in Wisconsin last Sunday. 

Members of the Metropolitan Police Department were out in force as demonstrators marched towards the White House chanting, 'No cops, no KKK, no fascists'.

Shortly before midnight, tensions between protesters and law enforcement boiled over, as police officers in riot gear began charging at protesters to move them out of the area.
