Police attack violent leftist protesters outside the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago.
Outside the 1968 official Democratic convention proceedings, anti-war demonstrators clashed with 11,900 Chicago police, 7500 Army troops, 7500 Illinois National Guardsmen and 1000 Secret Service agents over 5 days in August 1968.
Today Senator Dianne Feinstein told CNN she is worried about this year’s Democrat Convention turning into 1968 all over again.
Well, it worries me a great deal. I don’t want to go back to the ’68 Convention because I worry what it does to the electorate as a whole.
