Police clash with protesters at abortion rights rally in Los Angeles

https://www.yahoo.com/news/lapd-police-clash-abortion-protest-supreme-court-175537208.html

Police and protesters clashed in downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday night during an abortion rights rally over the Supreme Court's possible overturning of Roe v. Wade.

According to Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore, police were escorting a group of about 250 demonstrators marching from the federal courthouse to Pershing Square when a segment of the crowd began to throw rocks and bottles at police. Moore said that one officer was injured.

One police vehicle was seen with its window smashed, and a citywide police tactical alert was was briefly declared.

Videos posted to social media showed a chaotic scene as an officer tackled a protester, nearly hitting a fire hydrant, while another officer struck protesters with a baton.

1. Cops brought this on themselves

After we watched the state violence against BLM protestors, do they really think people expect to march peacefully now?
