City Hall Burning in Argentina

In Baradero, a city about 60 miles north of Buenos Aires, two teenagers on a motorcycle were chased by the police because they were not wearing helmets. Apparently, the riders attempted to flee and died when the motorcycle crashed into a police truck.
This incident led to outrage over the teenagers' deaths. The city's residents directed their anger towards the police and torched the city hall as well as the vehicle registry office.
