LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles police department officials said that on Friday, November 11, 2016, thousands of protesters marched through the streets of Los Angeles. The subject of the protests was the recent presidential election results.
Although, peaceful demonstrations are the constitutional right of demonstrators, police were present to ensure safety for everyone. Protests lasted in the evening and into the early-morning hours, with around 1,000 protesters marching through downtown Los Angeles.
Some of the protesters acted out aggressively, vandalizing property, blocking main roads, assaulting, and otherwise interfering with officers, and refusing to leave when conditions became unsafe. After attempting clear the area due to safety concerns, authorities were left no option but to arrest 187 adults and 8 juveniles for their unlawful actions during the demonstrations.
“The LAPD will continue to provide the necessary resources to ensure safe and peaceful expression of opinions,” LAPD officials said. “When demonstrations begin to violate the law and create unsafe condition for the demonstrators, officers, and the public, department personnel will continue to take appropriate enforcement action.”
