San Diego BLM protesters clashed with police officers: VIDEO
Three days of riots over a lenient court sentence in the Breonna Taylor murder case escalate into violent clashes between police officers and protesters. This time, the moment of the clash between the opposing groups was filmed on camera.
The fight itself got into the lens, but it is not clear who was the initiator. The authorities reported three detainees.
3 protestors were arrested at B St/Columbia St. One for robbery (cell phone) and 2 for interfering with an arrest. A cell phone was stolen from the victim while he was recording the protestors.— San Diego Police Department (@SanDiegoPD) September 26, 2020
According to police reports, a group of BLM activists, in the amount of 40 to 50 people, began their march from the building of the Supreme Court, the rally was not coordinated, so when trying to isolate the protesters in the streets, a fight broke out.
The group of 40-50 continues to walk around in the downtown area including the Gaslamp. Their destination is unknown. We appreciate people’s patience and are goal is to keep vehicle traffic moving.— San Diego Police Department (@SanDiegoPD) September 26, 2020
During the procession, activists chanted “No Justice, No Peace,” and Breonna Taylor’s name.
