BLM - Cause and Effect
On Wednesday may 27th we received news that a protest was taking place on the 101 with damage to two CHP cruisers and an individual who had fallen off the hood of one of the cruiser while speeding away.
It was a small but agitated group of people that had decided to march for the injustice of George Floyd.
This would be the start of (and til this day) an ongoing and historical movement with daily protest marches all over the country.
For the next couple of days the police responded with harsh methods which lead to a violent repsonse from the protesters. The media focus on the violence as well as the violence itself quickly dissipated as the conversations around Black Lives Matter and the systemic injustice was finally brought up to the surface.
Though, with police forces all across the country responding to peaceful protests with pepperspray, rubber bullets, billy clubs, and aggression Mayor Garcetti decided to fully withdraw the LAPD police presence as well as the National Guard.
The protest were now allowed to stay as peaceful as they were intended. And with that, people showed up in historical numbers.
