Mayor Karen Bass Meets With LAPD About Campus Protests

Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass released a statement in response to the protests turned violent on the campus of UCLA:

“This morning, I met in person with LAPD, LASD, CHP, CalOES, UCPD and other regional agencies at the UCLA incident command post about the absolutely detestable violence on campus last night. LAPD is supporting regional law enforcement on next steps to ensure our students and campus are safe.

“There must be a full investigation into what occurred on campus last night. Those involved in launching fireworks at other people, spraying chemicals and physically assaulting others will be found, arrested, and prosecuted, as well as anyone involved in any form of violence or lawlessness.

“I want to make sure the message I delivered to law enforcement and other officials earlier today is clear: Free speech will be protected. Violence and bigotry will not.

“I have spoken with Governor Newsom and want to thank him for his continued support.”
