A dozen people were in custody Wednesday morning following a wild night of cat and mouse between Los Angeles police and marauding bands of youths who were robbing tourists and storefronts in Hollywood, officials said.
One adult and 11 juveniles were arrested Tuesday night, and all but one were booked on suspicion of robbery, said LAPD Sgt. John Barkley. The 12th arrest was for receiving stolen property, he said.

That read like an apology. Wow I guess people where arrested for really not anything important.
The roving bands of “Yutes” were as concerned about the Zimmerman trial as they were about the latest cricket match between Sri Lanka and the West Indies.
Will Hollywood be tweeting their support for the 12?
They were not engaging in any kind of protest, Barkley said. I think this specific group came up to riot and cause problems in Hollywood.
I carry a gun everywhere...if one of these people had attacked me, I'd have shot them.
Maybe a few more welfare checks and EBT cards would help settle them down.
Must be UCLA co-eds.
‘Cause “Young People” is so non-descript.
Too bad they didn’t hit the Hollywood celebrities, that would have been delicious.
Just another excuse to put yutes in jail.
As my formerly extremely liberal (and now moderating) lady says,
“Do they think this makes them more sympathetic, or does it just confirm what everyone thinks about them already?”
Don’t surprised if they do.
What a way to honor Trayvon! / s
They were just enjoying the excuse to cause mayhem.
No mention of any identifiable charismatics other than under 18. Must be the white Mennonite crowd. I’m sure they will all be released and no further charges assigned.
RATM ... “Rolling down Rodeo with a shotgun, these people ain’t seen a ...”
They’re just carrying on the work St. Trayvon was doing that night.
Heck, if I wasted two hours of my life on that dreck, I'd be right there with them.
They were not engaging in any kind of protest, Barkley said.
RIOTS HAVE NEVER BEEN PROTESTS!!’
rather than One HUGE RIOT ..ala ROTNEE KANG,,,,we will doubtless continue to be treated to hundreds of MINI RIOTS
the rotknee kang riot wuz so OLD SKOO
“these NEW MINI RIOTS...are NU SKOO” ..Racial Jeantel...2013
Just to be sure.
They were not engaging in any kind of protest. The article refers to the people involved as juveniles. In fact they were children. Police apprehended an 80 year old female Norwegian tourist but released her when it was determined that she was not involved. The media go to extreme lengths not to identify the perps in detail. It has become comical. We all know that the perps are “Amish.”
The profiling debate is the ultimate example of logic and truth vs. emotion and political correctness. Anyone who is intelligent enough to read crime statistics and honest enough to say what those stats show know that young black men are far, far more likely to be involved in crime. The other side intentionally lies about the stats to either cover-up an embarrassing truth about their community or because their white guilt prevents them from saying the truth aloud. Meanwhile innocent people continue to be victimized by the group allegedly no more likely to commit crime than anyone else.
Libtard media code. Problem is, everyone sees right through it these days.
Oh, and $250.00 afflettik shooz would go a long way towards assuaging their righteous indignation, too.
But they’re still too dense to realize it’s working against them!
Folks have NO problems seeing through this smokescreen immediately, and it just makes them look even more like the lying sacks of Al Sharpton that they truly are.
I find it amusing that most of the Zimmerman protests have been in California while Florida has been relatively calm. That’s because there’s a lot of people like George Zimmerman in Florida.
The crowd quickly dispersed when a police helicopter dropped job applications for local businesses.
The 11 juvies won’t get more than a slap on the wrist—and they will continue on their life of crime because they don’t think there are any consequences for their actions.
Obama and Holder are guilty of inciting violence and riots. They could be spoiling for retaliation so they can impose martial law. God knows that many, many people, including me, are sick to death of leftists spewing their ridiculous garbage and excuses for minorities to engage in violence and criminal behavior. Provocation is upon us at all turns. We need some conservative statesmen to publicly call them out boldly and repeatedly.
How about Dr. Ben Carlson as a start?
Yes and FL being part of the south have no patience for those who want to cause trouble.
If we had a real black president, say a Thomas Sowell, he would be making speeches to tell these racist marauders that (a) Trayvon Martin dug his own grave, (b) if he was worth honoring, looting is not the way to do it, and (c) the black community has a lot of work to do to get its own house in order: far more black people are killed by other black people than by white people or “white Hispanics”.
The dozen in custody Wednesday came from South L.A. and Compton, Barkley said.
Police say the attackers appeared to be an organized group who knew one another. Officers swarmed the Hollywood area as helicopters for police and news media circled overhead.
More than 110 officers were brought in from other LAPD divisions to track down the robbers, Kato said, pitting police against the attackers in a massive cat-and-mouse game around Hollywood. Dozens of officers awaited orders at Wilton Place and Monroe Street.
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.
Nasty, that profiling thing. /sarc
He has certainly been working at it and he is effective, though more as a voice of reason. I saw him this morning on TV. I think we need highly vocal outrage, preferably on the floor of the Senate and House, because what is happening is utterly outrageous. Republican politicians (note I did not say conservatives) are cowards and seem to be in on the fix. Unfortunately, grassroots resolve is likely the only thing that will save our freedom.
“Too bad they didnt hit the Hollywood celebrities, that would have been delicious.”
Hah! The celebs travel with armed security just like our DC pols. No one would dare to try.
Everyone knows that terms like, “youths, mobs, unruly rowd, or zombies” will always be followed with...attacking whites, committed crimes, etc...
I wonder if black people know that YT now openly refer to ghetto negros as “zombies” and we watch tv shows with people sharing their ideas nd plans for liminating zombies....that preppers openly plan for stopping zombies with weapons when the sh:t goes down
"Seventy-six-year-old John Henry Spooner is on trial in the May 2012 death of (13 year old) Darius Simmons, whom Spooner had accused of breaking into his house and stealing his guns."
A real black president would also call out the race baiters for what they are: people who make a living by perpetuating the misery of others.
