750,000 People Went to the L.A. Women’s March – and Zero Got Arrested [News]
By Tim Molloy
Guys? Maybe women should be in charge of demonstrations from now on.
Up to 750,000 people marched through the streets of downtown Los Angeles on Saturday as part of the sister marches to the Women’s March in Washington, D.C.
And not a single one of them was arrested, the Los Angeles Police Department told TheWrap. “We had zero arrests,” Officer Norma Eisenman said. “It was very peaceful, very family oriented. We had lots of families out there.”
She added: “They lookd happy. There were people out there who looked happy just to exercise their First Amendment rights.”
There was no official count by the LAPD, which stopped keeping track after 100,000 people, she said. Organizers put the total at 750,000 people. A Wrap reporter at the March observed crowds of people of all backgrounds packed so tightly together that they could barely move in places — but heard no one say a single cross word, except in chants about the new president.
