On Monday, the grand jury opted not to indict officer Darren Wilson, a white American, over the killing of teenager Michael Brown, a black American, whom the policeman shot during a struggle between the two in August. Subsequently, protests erupted nationwide, some of which led to unrest in cities like Los Angeles and Oakland.

Los Angeles police arrested 183 protesters overnight Tuesday and then about 130 more Wednesday night. Through Tuesday night, Los Angeles led the country in total arrests of Ferguson demonstrators.

Most of the arrests occurred after demonstrators refused orders to disperse from the streets. Many protesters blocked freeway traffic as well, and some engaged in vandalism, fighting and weapons offenses.

On Monday night, Oakland police arrested 43 protesters following vandalism and looting. Police said demonstrators looted a Smart & Final in downtown Oakland, and 10 merchants reported that their storefront windows were shattered.

Some protesters also threw rocks and bottles at officers. Several officers were injured in the melee.

    Maybe one day these people will wake up and realize the extent to which they are used by the race baiters.

    Is there any thoughtful individual on earth that would hook their wagon to Michael Brown?

    Absolutely disgraceful.

    The LA TV interviews of the protesters were a joke. “The police treated is like criminals criminals!”

    Um, yeah! That’s because you are! Blocking freeways is a crime! Your free speech doesn’t include messing up everyone else’s day, losers.

      Classic and true.

      My dad taught me from an early age, if you ever get pulled over, hands where they can see them and yes sir, no sir.

      Unfortunately the majority of black youth in our country have no male role model, no one to teach them respect for authority and don’t value education. How is that working out reverend Jackson and al Sharpton?

        Actually, it’s probably working out well for them. It keeps the two losers relevant.
