The rally and march began last night at around 7, and by 10 had made its way back to the starting point at Broadway and Redondo Avenues in Long Beach. Although the local police and the LA Co. Sheriffs had been keeping a watchful eye on the crowds, by the end of the evening they were "met with resistance" when they urged the protesters to bring the even to a close. After they were reportedly "urged to move on or face arrest," three people were "detained on suspicion of inciting a riot," reports A group of people in favor of Prop 8 were also present, but remained across the street holding up signs.
