A broken palm tree is seen on a property that was vandalized in last night protests in Anaheim, Calif., Thursday, Feb. 23, 2017. An off-duty California officer who didn't want teens walking across his lawn fired his gun during a struggle with a 13-year-old boy and other youths, igniting unruly protests after video of the fight surfaced and two boys were arrested. No one was hurt during the struggle, but hundreds of people marched through suburban Anaheim streets late Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2017, some blocking traffic and carrying signs that said "no shooting zone." Police arrested two dozen people, including children, after the crowd ignored orders to disperse. (AP Photo/Nick Ut)
