Reports from last night's Donut Social protest in the East Village say it ended in a mini-riot with several protesters arrested. During an impromptu acoustic concert in Tompkins Square following the scheduled demonstration, Leftover Crack singer Scott Sturgeon was first arrested (possibly for throwing donuts at police). More arrests followed when protesters sat in front of the police car containing Sturgeon blocking its exit from the park as the crowd called for police to "quit, commit suicide and called them Nazis." The event's organizers had already run into resistance from police before the night of the gathering which was protesting "police brutality, real estate developers, and the blatant selectively targeted harassment/discrimination toward our scene during the 20th Anniversary of the Tompkins Square Park Police Riots concert/political rally back in August."
