Police tear gas Sao Paulo protest, Bolsonaro joins rally against Brazil's top court

Demonstrations in Sao Paulo became violent on Sunday (May 31) as opponents of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro took to the main Paulista avenue to protest against "fascism" and clashed with riot police who intervened to stop them getting close to a rally by supporters of the president.

Meanwhile, Bolsonaro joined a rally on horseback as supporters urged the closing of the Supreme Court for investigating the right-wing leader, as one of its justices compared the risks to Brazil's democracy with Hitler's Germany.

The president walked around the rally and shook hands with supporters, wearing no face mask despite its use being mandatory in the capital to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

He then mounted a police horse and trotted past the crowd.

On Saturday (May 30) night, a group of masked backers of Bolsonaro marched to the court carrying torches to call for its closure.

Back in Sao Paulo, Bolsonaro supporters peacefully rallied in the street, while Bolsonaro opponents kept on being pushed back by riot policemen.

Various Bolsonaro opponents were arrested and taken away in police vehicles.

Cops: Man Shot Woman Who Took Down His Nazi Flag

Hunter, Oklahoma, resident Daniel John Feaster is behind bars after shooting a woman who tried to steal his flag. It was a Nazi swastika flag. Police say the 26-year-old woman was shot multiple times early Sunday after taking one of two swastika flags from Feaster's front yard. The woman was at a nearby party and apparently stole the flag on a dare—though distaste for Adolf Hitler's genocidal regime may also have played a role.
