2:30 p.m.: Total of 65 US Park Police injured during DC protests

A total of 65 U.S. Park Police were injured during three nights of protests in Washington, D.C.

Most of the injuries came from projectiles being thrown at officers; they were hit with bricks, urine bottles and petroleum-based substances, Sgt. Eduardo Delgado, spokesman for the Park Service, told ABC News.

Police arrested 88 people related to the violent demonstrations Sunday night, Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham said. Of those, 44 were charged with felony rioting.

Newsham said the city is looking at federal statutes that might be used to prosecute some of those arrested.

The entire D.C. National Guard has been activated by Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy to assist U.S. Park Police, according to Master Sgt. Craig Clapper, a spokesman for the D.C. National Guard.

The additional forces will be unarmed and in a support role to U.S. Park police and that they will be equipped in protective riot gear, Clapper said.

Mayor Muriel Bowser has ordered a two-day curfew, beginning at 7 p.m. Monday.

Newsham warned, if you are not a member of the media or performing an essential function, “local and federal police will take you into custody.”

National Parks Irresponsible Refusal to Enforce Distancing - PEER.org

Attn: #PEER Pacific Dir. Ruch - As a whole, NPS law enforcement is dangerously understaffed. They do not have the resources required to safely and effectively perform their basic mission. This has been an operational reality for decades. Please, be aware that Yellowstone Wildlife Distances are routinely violated with impunity by numerous visitors. Social distancing enforcement operations would require drastic changes to visitation procedures. These changes would require hiring significantly more law enforcement and other personnel to operate effectively. - See comments for a previous related post -

As second day of protests began in D.C., Bowser called president’s reference to “vicious dogs” a “not too subtle reminder to African Americans of the segregationists who let dogs out on women, children and innocent people in the South.”

National parks hope visitors comply with virus measures

Hope is a rather leaky bucket in which to place the safety of visitors---Article: "” We can't keep the public away from bison and bears every year at full staffing levels. So the notion that we're going to keep every human being 6 feet apart is ridiculous," Yellowstone Superintendent Cam Sholly said. ” ------- USPPFOP: Are they truly fully staffed or merely staffed at a level the NPS Royalty has divined as adequate. Superintendent Solly has a point because any social distancing enforcement actions will quickly become an operational quagmire. Suppose there are 500 + visitors violating the distancing rules, arresting or citing them is a rabbit hole to be avoided. Telling people what to do when the "rules" are murky is silly. Who exactly, is responsible for being too close among any number of people? Telling people what to do when you lack the intention, ability, or authority to take action will inevitably lead to regret.
