Protests are expected for a third day today in LA over the decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown in Missouri. Dozens of demonstrators were arrested downtown overnight. About 100 protesters flooded the 101 freeway, scattering barricades across lanes. They brought traffic to a halt in both directions for about 30 minutes. The LAPD arrested some early this morning near Ninth and Flower and a second group at Temple and Broadway. Why are some protesters facing charges? What are LAPD’s plans for policing future protests?
