The city response to peaceful protests has been to attack people with riot police (paid for with 54% of the city budget, $1.73 billion went to the police last year) and deploy armed troops in the streets. Now the Santa Monica airport and a sports stadium at a public university (UCLA Jackie Robinson Stadium) have been turned into "temporary holding facilities." We are living in a police state. Can someone please help us?

@vsedach Even sadder. The country that imprisons more of its population per capita than *any* other country is running out of space jail even more.
