1. What was the purpose of the protest that had taken place on the previous day?
They were protesting the decision to remove a statue of a Confederate Civil War general.
2. At 2:17 the on-the-scene reporter described three separate groups of officials policing the incident. What were the three groups, and why was the third group deployed?
At first there was a low police presence (meaning regular police, not so many), then later riot police moved in and finally the National Guard. The National Guard was deployed after a state of emergency was declared.

“So it feels like it’s starting to calm, and after the amount of violence and chaos today, it would be surprising if the violence continued this evening, I would think.”
