On Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States rendered its verdict in the case of Roe v. Wade, which dealt with abortion.
An individual from California has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after it was reported that they assaulted a police officer as part of a protest against the recent abortion decision made by the United States Supreme Court, according to police reports. The protest was in response to the decision made by the Supreme Court of the United States.
Michael Ortiz and Juliana Bernado, according to Police Chief Michel Moore, were among those arrested in downtown Los Angeles on Friday during a skirmish with police as protesters gathered to oppose the overturning of Roe v. Wade. The protesters were demonstrating against the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned.
The Los Angeles Police Department made note of “a much smaller group” that went out into the streets “deliberately causing disruption and devastation,” even though the majority of participants were law-abiding and committed no illegal acts.
The sources claim that when the protests lasted late into the night, residents started “throwing fireworks and other makeshift weapons” at the police.
