Last night was the second night of protests in Berkeley, California where more than 300 people took to the streets to express frustration over a grand jury decision last week in New York that did not indict a white officer for the apparent chokehold of a black resident. Eventually, the protests that started peacefully turned violent after a small group looted buildings and vandalized police cars. A Martinez speaks with Kale Williams - a reporter with the San Francisco Chronicle who was there last night.
