Second night of post-election protests in N.O. was peaceful

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans police say a second night of protests has been peaceful so far, unlike last night's, which included incidents of vandalism of buildings and the burning in effigy of President-Elect Donald Trump.

Groups of protesters are marching at different locations, including Lee Circle, the French Quarter and the Central Business District.

There is a very heavy law enforcement presence that includes officers on foot and horseback. 

A reporter on the scene at Lee Circle said the group is mainly chanting sentiment against Trump, who won the election on Tuesday in a close race with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

There are estimated to be a little more than 100 people participating in Thursday's protests.
