Some demonstrators protesting police brutality turned out again in Boston and police presence was ramped up on Monday, a day after a largely peaceful protest turned ugly.


Around 5 p.m. Monday, a convoy of police vehicles, many from suburbs of the city, made its way down Beacon Street. At the bottom of the hill they turned onto Boston Common, where they took up positions in anticipation of any trouble tonight in the city.
