CBS News Video Shows Alt Left Protesters Stealing of Free Speech Protesters Megaphone As Police Idly Stand by Watching

Officers in riot gear and some on horseback forced hundreds of protesters out a Dallas cemetery where they were clashing over a Confederate monument on Saturday night.

More than 100 demonstrators lingered on a blockaded street after they were pushed out of Pioneer Park, a civil war cemetery that houses the memorial to Confederate soldiers. The confrontation happened as a large rally at City Hall plaza nearby was ending.

WFAA.com had video coverage as the situation grew loud and tense before protesters dispersed.

Police had estimated about 2,300 people attended the rally, but only a few hundred remained by about 9:30 p.m.

Many yelled at the officers standing watch at Pioneer Park, and a helicopter circled above.

At one point, officers pulled four supporters of the monument over a barrier for their protection.
