“Nazis go home,” about 40 white supremacists stood and waved swastika flags at a rally closely monitored by the Los Angeles Police Department.
“We are tired of you clogging up our streets,” shouted one white
supremacist, who belongs to the group National Socialist Movement.
Another group member denounced illegal aliens repeatedly, saying, “If
the city supports illegal aliens and criminals, that is treason.”
Several fights preceded the appearance of the supremacist group. One
involved a man holding a sign with flames and a swastika. The man, who
was carrying a bullhorn, was suddenly rushed by a mob of counter-
demonstrators and beaten near the corner of Spring and 1st streets.
The man, who appeared to be in his 30s, was punched in the face and
kicked for about 20 seconds by protesters, many of them wearing
About a dozen police in riot gear rushed from near City Hall, running straight into the center of the mob.
“Police!” members of the mob screamed, running down Spring Street.
Once police broke up the mob, the man with the sign began running
south on Spring Street. One man caught up with him and slugged him in
the face; he collapsed and his face hit the curb. He was quickly
surrounded by a mob again until police caught up and pushed the
counter-protesters away with their batons.More
