14 arrested after Zimmerman verdict protest in L.A. turns violent
LA Times ^

Los Angeles police arrested 14 people overnight for failing to disperse after hundreds of protesters splintered off a peaceful demonstration in the Crenshaw district and began stomping cars and breaking windows.

“It started off as a peaceful protest at Leimert Park,” said LAPD Officer Bruce Borihanh. “Unfortunately, a small group started disrupting it. It just got out of hand.”

About 350 Los Angeles Police Department officers swarmed the Crenshaw district after groups of youths broke away from the demonstration protesting the George Zimmerman murder trial verdict.

The group roamed Crenshaw Boulevard and neighboring streets breaking windows, setting fires and attacking several people. Among those attacked were a television reporter and his cameraman, according to law enforcement authorities.

Reporter Dave Bryan and his cameraman, both of whom work for KCBS Channel 2 and KCAL Channel 9, were attacked and one of them was taken to a hospital with a possible concussion, Lt. Andy Neiman told The Times.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck put the public on notice that officers would be taking a more aggressive posture toward protesters beginning Tuesday. "This will not be allowed to continue," he said.

Why do they say youth? Why don’t they say black youth or black mobs? Are such terms too incendiary to use?????

"The group roamed Crenshaw Boulevard and neighboring streets breaking windows, setting fires and attacking several people."

Must've been a multicultural mixed race group of college students. It would be racist to assume otherwise unless instructed by our absolutely trustworthy media.

I noticed that also. Not one mention of the word, "Black".

Maybe it was the Amish Mafia.

Yawn. This represents such a small percentage of crime committed by blacks it is less than a rounding error. At least there are 14 less criminals on the street, which is a good thing. Hopefully the LAPD can make more progress in protecting the good people of California.

I don’t beleive this story. I thought all black people were peaceful and just wanted to be left alone to eat their Skiddles.

I would bet they were back on the street before police finished the paperwork.
