Officers arrested 19 protesters, including nine for vandalism, three for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, two for failure to disperse, two for resisting arrest, two for blocking traffic and one for attempted assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, reports the Los Angeles Times.

One officer suffered a minor concussion after being hit in the head by an object thrown by the crowd.

This is a case where we do need boots on the ground. Special Forces should be sent in to round up these scum and throw them in the big house. When officers are injured everyone of those protestors should get stomped into the sidewalk. We need to send a message to these idiots that if any officer is injured, then they could be executed and at the least beaten badly. Criminals are going to continue attacking officers until we get tough on them and speak with tazers and batons. There will always be work that needs to be done, until everyone of these protestors is rounded up and thrown in the slammer for the rest of their miserable lives.
