At least 14 people were taken into custody Tuesday night and many more remained at large after marauding bands of young people conducted a string of robberies, assaults and acts of vandalism along Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles police said late Tuesday.

The crimes did not appear to be related to the protests over the George Zimmerman acquittal in the slaying of Trayvon Martin.

News to me, I had no idea Baghdad Bob moved from the White House to LA. Why the sudden move?

How much bullsh*t are we supposed to swallow? Just a coincidence, right?

It’s the LA Times. It’s not like they have any credibility to protect. But yeah, that was a pretty stupid comment.

Look on the bright side, they could have said "marauding bands of young Children" like the child St. Trayvon.

“The crimes did not appear to be related to the protests over the George Zimmerman acquittal in the slaying of Trayvon Martin.”

Really? Just like the murders and beatings of whites since the verdict, we are being told over and over that race and the verdict have had nothing to do with these crimes.

You have to understand, bands of marauding "youths" roam the streets of Hollywood assaulting and robbing on a regular basis. /s

Liberals - Saint Travyon
Conservative - Saint Zimmerman

Both are ridiculous. Neither are saints in this and neither were perfect in this. They both are idiots and I pray that soon we will never hear from either.

Not surprising to me. These marauders have virtually been given a license to do so by Obama and Holder, and encouraged to do so by Sharpton and Jackson.

Next to last sentence:

“At that intersection, two young black men were detained in handcuffs before being released with the terse explanation that they had mistakenly been stopped because they matched the general description of the robbers.”

These feral gangs of youth leaving the 'hood and going to shopping malls and other suburban or downtown areas where people of means normally gather is becoming much more common. The Police show up and run them off from one location, they pop up at another mall.

These lies are why we will NOT trust the US government or the people working for it... ever again. Lying, cheating and stealing federal employees being ruled over by the king of lies.

Race is mentioned. Look at the last paragraph. They apparently mistakenly arrested two black men who fit the general description of the perps.

It’s just a few little ass-whoopings. Rachel Jeantel told us that it’s no big deal, and we should just shut up and take it.

Well... it's not like they had labels on their faces or anything, so the police knew why they were rioting.
