The protests demanding social justice are still going after a month. Recently, they took the streets of Beverly Hills.
Law enforcement officials were forced to respond to the protests late on Friday night. Protests were marching through residential neighborhoods chanting “Eat the rich!” and “Abolish capitalism now!”
The Beverly Hills Police Department tweeted: “The unlawful assembly in the area of Rexford Dr & Carmelita Ave has ended with arrests being made. Protesters have now left the City.”
Social media videos showed protestors taking down resident's American flags and causing a mess to other properties.
Human Events Managing Editor Ian Miles Cheong compiled video highlights from the demonstrators on his Twitter account. “The Black Lives Matter mob shut down Santa Monica Boulevard, Rodeo Drive, and intersections around the city center,” wrote Cheong. At one point the group “seized a privately owned American flag in a residential suburb, shredding it and pulling it down.” In the residential areas, video shows, the group played “loud music and blocked the streets.”
“The police showed up in full force to arrest members of the Black Lives Matter mob making a nuisance of themselves across residential Los Angeles streets,” Cheong captions one post with video of police arresting members of the group. “One pretended to be injured by the police and forced them to drag him.”
