What do Democrats do when something doesn’t go their way? Break out the hoodies and black masks, take the fight to streets, and start “peacefully protesting” with whatever degree of violence the situation seems to demand, as we saw with the summer of George Floyd riots and chaos in DC following Trump’s election.
Now they’re doing it again, this time in LA, where woke, pro-abortion protesters are raising holy hell over the idea that they might no longer be able to murder babies in the womb thanks to Alito’s abortion opinion.
Never mind that all Alito seems to have done is devolve abortion lawmaking power back to the states and thus that their beloved blue states won’t ban it, they’re ready to riot and intent on doing so!
So, the streets of Los Angeles were full of the usual suspects- wiry, black-clad, masked thugs ready to wreak havoc and fight with the cops.
The protest started out peacefully, with a mass of pro-choice people gathering to show their support for abortion and their disdain for the court’s decision on how to handle the abortion topic, as can be seen in this video.

However, as the sun dipped down and the day wore on the protest went from peaceful to “mostly peaceful,” as CNN might say, with hundreds involved in fighting with cops as a pro-choice protest devolved into the typical sort of off and on street fighting that tends to accompany leftist outrage.
That was announced by LA police Chief Michel Moore said “Receiving update on protest @ Pershing Square. A segment of the group began to take the intersection. We attempted to communicate, clear and provide dispersal order to the group. Crowd began to throw rocks and bottles at ofcrs . We have one ofcr injured( Unk extent).”

And, as is usual when these types get together to express their displeasure, that soon turned into an orgy of violence, with the peaceful protesters on the tolerant left roaring through the streets, smashing windows and attacking cop cars.

That violence happened when police tried to stop and disperse the 250-strong mob by pulling squad cars into the intersection. Rather than retard the mob’s violence, however, it just led to the hoodlums smashing the cars and jumping on the hoods.
A bit later, when the police tried to arrest the rioters doing damage to their town, they were stopped by the other members of the riotous mob. They swarmed the officers, making it impossible for the cops to properly arrest the suspects and get them off the streets.

Predictably, the left absolutely lost it when it saw the police desperately fending off the more violent of the rioters, characterizing that fighting back as the police “brutalizing” pro-choice protesters:

Defend Roe V. Wade
I’m at a loss for words when it comes to what I just witnessed. This is a clip of LAPD with the help of DHS brutalizing abortion rights activists. Will speak more later & post additional footage. @TheActivatedPod @PplsCityCouncil pic.twitter.com/wGlwtxRL13

While I was photographing & filming tonight abortion rights protest an LAPD or DHS vehicle purposefully almost hit me. They had done this to other press/protesters moments prior as well. pic.twitter.com/HSFA93rBRz

What it really looks like is happening is that the police were simply trying to fend off and stop the violent rioters from wreaking any more havoc or smashing any more windows, particularly given how out of control the protest had gotten. Given the circumstances, the police were quite restrained in their response.
