Authorities were anticipating violence as a white nationalist group planned a demonstration at the California Capitol, and they brought in more than 100 officers to patrol the grounds.
But after 10 people were hurt Sunday, they faced criticism Monday about whether they were properly prepared or too slow to get involved when the demonstration quickly turned violent in a clash with a larger group of counter-protesters.
"It was basically a free-for-all," said Cres Vellucci, an observer with the National Lawyers Guild. "I was just appalled that nothing seemed to be done."
California Highway Patrol spokeswoman Fran Clader said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow met with Sacramento Police Chief Sam Somers for about two hours Monday "in an attempt to look for some lessons learned."
Ikea will recall one line of chests and dressers after the deaths of three toddlers in two years, the company confirmed Monday.
The company will offer full refunds or store credit to anyone who ever bought one of its Malm line dressers, and it will also stop selling them, Philly.com reported. The company told NBC News Monday night that it was issuing a recall.
"We are announcing this recall today given the recent tragic death of a third child. It is clear that there are still unsecured products in customers homes, and we believe that taking further action is the right thing to do," Ikea representative Christina Kaiser said in a statement Monday.

As part of the agreement, Turkey will be allowed to bring relief supplies into Gaza and carry out new development projects here.

Just 45 percent of Republican voters say they are satisfied with Donald Trump as their party's presumptive presidential nominee, while 52 percent say they would have preferred someone else, according to results from the latest national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
By comparison, the numbers are reversed for Hillary Clinton among Democrats — 52 percent of Democratic voters are satisfied with Clinton, and 45 percent prefer someone else, NBC News reported.
GOP attitudes about Trump break along ideological and educational lines. Fifty-eight percent of Republicans with a high school education or less are satisfied with Trump as the party's presumptive nominee, versus 60 percent of Republicans with a college degree who want someone else.
The NBC/WSJ poll — conducted June 19-23 — comes after Clinton became her party's presumptive nominee and the nightclub rampage in Orlando.

A Los Angeles federal judge signed off Monday on a settlement of the copyright case involving "Happy Birthday" — billed as the most recognized song in the English language — and ordered that the ditty be placed in the public domain for use at no charge.
Music publisher Warner/Chappell Music agreed to end its claim of ownership and refund $14 million to end the long-running dispute over royalty rights to the tune. The money will be distributed among those who paid licensing fees to use the song during the previous five decades.
"This is a huge victory for the public, and for the artists who want to use 'Happy Birthday to You' in their videos and music," said plaintiffs' attorney Daniel Schacht.
Chipotle is introducing a temporary loyalty program intended to get customers back into its stores following a series of food scares.
The Mexican food chain already has given away millions of burritos through coupons for entrees to try to fill up empty locations after an E. coli outbreak and norovirus cases last year sent sales plunging. In the first three months of this year, Chipotle's sales at established locations were down about 30 percent.
An additional 165 pages of emails from Hillary Clinton's time at the State Department surfaced Monday, including nearly three dozen that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee failed to hand over last year that were sent through her private server.
The latest emails were released under court order by the State Department to the conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch. The batch includes 34 new emails Clinton exchanged through her private account with her deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin. The aide, who also had a private email account on Clinton's home server, later gave her copies to the government.
The emails were not among the 55,000 pages of work-related messages that Clinton turned over to the agency in response to public records lawsuits seeking copies of her official correspondence.

Thousands of mayflies have taken over a bridge in central Illinois, creating a traffic nightmare for commuters trying to make their way across the city. The Havana Police Department warned drivers of a massive mayfly swarm on its Facebook page Monday morning, posting two photos that showed the bridge over the Illinois River and a local squad car blanketed by the bugs. At one point the mound of insects piled 6 inches high, according to the post, making for slick and dangerous roadways for vehicles trying to make their way through the mess.

In a decisive victory for supporters of abortion rights, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down tough restrictions on abortions in Texas that have more than halved the number of clinics in the state that provide the procedure.
The opinion on one of the most divisive issues in the country came at the end of the current term with only eight justices taking part.
Texas requires clinics that provide abortions to meet the same building standards as walk-in surgical centers and doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. The challenge to the Texas regulations was one of the most important abortion cases in 25 years.
Since the law imposing the new regulations was passed in 2013, the number of clinics has dropped from 42 to 19 and could fall further to 10.
With a month to go until the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton's campaign is weighing a slate of potential running mates, conducting interviews with candidates and in many cases requesting personal financial and medical information.
Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, a well-liked swing state lawmaker who was a finalist on Barack Obama's vice presidential shortlist in 2008, has emerged as an early frontrunner for the job. The top tier list includes: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and Housing Secretary Julian Castro, NBC News reported.
Geography and demographics are important - particularly as Democrats eye the possibility of taking control of the Senate, where they covet having a majority in place for the next administration's crucial first 100 days. On the second tier list of possible picks, there are some outside-the-box prospects as well as more widely-circulated names like New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

One of America's oldest commercial industries, fishing along the coast of the Northeast still employs hundreds. But every month that goes by, those numbers fall.

Frustrated by the pace of the investigation, the House Select Committee on Benghazi's Democratic members released their own, 339-page minority report on the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya.
NBC News reports the Democratic report released Monday exonerates Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time of attack, and accuses Republicans of exploiting the tragedy for political gain. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed.
It's unclear when the committee will release its main report. It will be written by the Republican members of Congress who control the Benghazi committee, which was created two years ago.
"We are issuing our own report today because, after spending more than two years and $7 million in taxpayer funds in one of the longest and most partisan congressional investigations in history, it is long past time for the Select Committee to conclude its work," the Democratic members of the committee wrote.
