2. I saw on twitter that Joyce Beatty and

Columbus city council member got sprayed with pepper spray by CPD. Wish I could post pictures with my phone. They were there trying to intervene and get folks to calm down a little. Whoever took that photo did a fantastic job.

5. From your source Maeve

snip--"At about 12:30pm, police began announcing an emergency order had been issued and told protestors they needed to leave the area. Police stated that crowd control devices, including chemical agents, may be used, and protestors were subject to arrest if they did not leave the area."

6. Looks like folks are staying on the sidewalks

There are calls for "white people to the front", have seen folks walking by with gallons of milk (in case of tear gas)...the cops are in the street (I think it's four or five lanes wide right there--Broad St at the statehouse)

8. I just drove through the short north,

a lot of establishments have boarded up their windows, quite a few people walking down High St. towards downtown carrying signs, there was some kind of rally at 3rd avenue and Summit St., Summit was closed. This was about a half hour ago.
