The D.C. Riots were a series of violent protests that occurred in Washington D.C.. The riots occurred mostly due to the government's controversial decision to reinstate the Draft in order to give more support to U.S. forces in Iran. The riots began on February 16th, 2012 and lasted for roughly a month until peace was restored to Washington D.C.
