A crowd of about 100 people gathered outside the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters on Friday night to protest the Memphis police beating tyre nichols,
The protest saw LAPD officers in riot gear face off against a crowd, with one protester throwing a firecracker at a patrol car. Later, the mob attacked a police car with an officer inside.
Protest Memphis police then released video footage of Nichols’ thrashing death at the hands of police there.
Metal barricades surrounded the LAPD headquarters, but were eventually torn down by the group.
Elsewhere, protests were seen in New York, Atlanta, Memphis, Portland, Oregon, Philadelphia, Boston and Seattle. Businesses and some federal employees were sent home early in anticipation of unrest later in the evening.
