Amid the Oakland protests occurring over the weekend, the bust of civil rights leader and former city councilmember Frank Hirao Ogawa was defaced.

According to CBS Local News, Officer Johnna Watson noted an estimate of about 700 demonstrators who were a part of a “peaceful march Saturday night,” but come nightfall, some started to splinter off until there were peaceful protestors and those who started to smash windows, spray graffiti and point lasers at officers.
