Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck are warning citizens that more unruly protests over the George Zimmerman verdict won't be tolerated.
Last night at a press conference, Beck said 350 officers were deployed in the South Los Angeles area. A citywide tactical alert was declared around 8:30pm after a mob broke off from a prayer vigil and marched down Crenshaw Blvd. Several cars and businesses were vandalized. In addition, a news cameraman and reporter were attacked and suffered minor injuries.
Police ended up arresting 14 people after declaring an unlawful assembly just before 10pm.
