For no apparent reason, LAPD aggresively moved in a small crowd gathered directly across the MacArthur Park Metro Station.
The peaceful and happy crowd was enjoying Danza when out of nowhere, LAPD officers began to drive their motorcycles directly into the crowd. Many children were at the center of the circle and there's no way that LAPD Officers were even aware that Children were present and that they were endangering people's lives by driving directly onto the unexpected crowd.
Althought the LAPD's actions attracted a bigger crowd, some people began to leave the scene due to a growing number of LAPD Officers regardless of the fact that there wasn't an obvious cause or situation.
By now no one really knew why the Police moved in or what to do...Even the Riot Police officers that moved in after the Motorcycle LAPD Units weren't sure of what to do. There was nothing bad was happening and as you can tell from the LAPD's body language, they do NOT appear afraid for the safety or looked worried. Why did they show up?
For some, the presence of Riot Police became to intimidating and perhaps discouraging to the extent some people began to leave while others debated what to do. We had a RIGHT to be there.
