LAPD squad cars were damaged and, in some cases, destroyed Saturday as crowds converged on Los Angeles’s streets for a fourth day of protests over the death of George Floyd.
Chicago police cars were attacked as well.
NBC Los Angeles reported “at least 11 LAPD squad cars have been vandalized.” It aired video showing protesters standing on top of squad cars, knocking out the vehicles’ windows, and spray painting the cars. Upwards of eight LAPD cruisers can be seen all at once being vandalized and destroyed in the street.
The video showed one LAPD cruiser ablaze in the Fairfax District and a second squad car burning about half a mile away.
Also on Saturday, CNN aired video of protesters in broad daylight attacking and damaging Chicago police cars. The video shows protesters breaking glass on the cars, kicking and striking the vehicles with random objects, etc.
