|(May 31, 2020, 12:40 p.m.) -- After rioting and looting in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills following a peaceful LA protest over the Minneapolis PD-involved death of George Floyd, barriers are visible outside LBPD HQ and new Civic Cneter, and some nearby downtown LB businesses are boarding up their businesses in advance of an afternoon demonstration (its organizers unclear) announced on social networks by Black Lives Matter Long Beach and Democratic Socialists of America.
As reported yesterday by LBREPORT.com, LBPD is operating under a "modified tactical alert" with more than its usual number of officers on duty.
At a noon hour press conference today (May 31) carried LIVE on LBREPORY.com, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti deplored what he called yesterday's ugly acts of violence that he said hijacked and changed the conversation away from the death of Mr. Floyd.
