But CBS News wants you to know “the protests were largely peaceful:”
Protesters in Atlanta on Saturday shut down an interstate highway in both directions and set fire to a Wendy’s where police shot and killed a black man the night before. Earlier Saturday, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields stepped down down from the role as tensions mounted over the shooting.
The fire appeared to be contained shortly before midnight. And the protests were largely peaceful with no reported clashes with police in riot gear, according to CBS Atlanta affiliate WGCL-TV

If so, it reinforces the pattern seen since Minneapolis that black rioters have mostly been gleefully stealing, while white rioters have mostly been doing the arson.
