'Almost All Of The People Who Were Out On The Streets... Did Absolutely Nothing Wrong'

LA City Councilman Mike Bonin told us this morning:

'There were the peaceful protests that were out in the street demanding justice, demanding an end to racism and violence against black men and an end to systemic racism embedded into so many systems in a country: health care and education, finance, housing.'

And then there were these acts of violence and the acts of violence were repugnant. And we need to have a period of inquiry and reckoning to find out who was behind it.'

Bonin went on to say "almost all of the people who were out on the streets yesterday —and I know many of them were there peacefully and peaceably — did absolutely nothing wrong."
