Protests in California
July 15 , 2013
Protestors who were angered by the acquittal of George Zimmerman held peaceful protests in 3 cities of California but the demonstrations seem to have gone out of hand in Oakland. The police has said that nearly 100 people protested and that some of them broke windows and started small street fights. Some of them were also reported to have vandalized a police car after which the police blocked their paths.
There had been no arrests until 2:00 am and reports say that there was a period where the crowds were running among vehicles. People who gathered at Sacramento City Hall said that the protestors were heard asking for immediate justice for Trayvon.
