From yesterday’s LA Times:
Supporters and critics of Donald Trump squared off Wednesday as the presidential candidate held a rally in Anaheim, with police making several arrests after some demonstrators threw objects at them. After Trump departed, a small group of protesters remained in the area, ignoring orders by police to disperse. One trash can was set on fire, some protesters threw rocks, and large throngs of police were trying to push the remaining demonstrators away. At least seven adults and one juvenile were arrested over the course of the day, with many taken into custody after police declared an unlawful assembly. “You can’t arrest all of us,” one woman shouted. Another group of anti-Trump demonstrators continued to linger, yelling, “Mexico! Mexico!”
This follows similar incidents in Albuquerque earlier this week:
Protesters outside a rally for Donald J. Trump in Albuquerque threw rocks at police horses and lighted fires on Tuesday night, according to the police and postings on social media. The Albuquerque police said on Twitter that contrary to reports, no tear gas had been deployed outside the rally venue, the Albuquerque Convention Center.
The police also said no gunshots had been fired. Live video aired by KOAT-TV showed officers pushing protesters onto sidewalks. The police reported that their horses were being attacked.
