1968 Democratic National Convention Police Riot. In 1967, protest groups had promised to come to Chicago and disrupt the convention, & the city promised to maintain law and order. For 8 days, protesters & the Chicago Police battled for control of the streets while the Democratic Party met at the convention. Confrontation in the streets had a greater impact than the seating of racially mixed delegates from southern states, credential and platform battles, and even the presidential nomination.
