Police in Stockton, California, claim to have arrested 12 people at a Black Lives Matter protest earlier this week, including three individuals who allegedly assaulted a homeless man.
Black Lives Matter affiliated protesters demonstrated at a Stockton City Council meeting on Tuesday, demanding the police answer questions about the death of Colby Friday, who was allegedly shot by a police officer back in August.
The demonstrators urged the council to look into the shooting, which is being investigated by the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s office. The protest, which started out peacefully, later turned violent.
