WATCH: Chicago Protesters Desperately Try, But Fail to Take Down Columbus Statue

Chicago rioters tried but failed to take down a Columbus statue.

They changed “Bring it down! Bring it down!” as they attempted to pull a rope they had connected to it.

Protesters with bikes lined Chicago and faced off with police.

Protesters chanting, “who do you serve, who do you protect?” #ChicagoPeotests #ColumbusStatue

Cops later reclaimed the statue, using pepper spray.
