Hundreds Protest the Actions of an Off-Duty Cop in California

From the Washington Post:

Hundreds of people took to the streets of Anaheim, Calif., for a sprawling protest Wednesday night that was sparked by video footage showing an off-duty Los Angeles police officer firing his gun during a confrontation with teenagers a day earlier.

No one was hurt during the shooting, but the episode was recorded and widely shared across social media, sparking anger in the area and leading to a standoff on Anaheim’s streets between demonstrators and police. The officer involved has been placed on leave, while two teenagers were arrested after the incident.

Authorities have not identified the officer involved, but promise a thorough and impartial investigation into the incident.
