    FergusonLA Protests in Hollywood

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     dpkronmiller brought his daughter to this protest in Los Angeles, and said many others brought their children to give it a family feel. ' Seeing the deaths of so many unarmed and innocent people at the hands of law enforcement breaks my heart. There is a sacred trust between law enforcement and the citizens they serve that has been weakened and in some communities, completely broken.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    My family and I went and took part in the protest today in Hollywood against Police Brutality. We were part of a group called FergusonLA showing support for the nationwide movement to reform Police procedure and improve relations between law enforcement and citizens.

    The protests began at Hollywood and Highland outside the Chinese Theater. We marched down Hollywood Blvd towards Vine and then headed down to the CNN building on Sunset. A die-in was then staged in front of CNN as the Police peacefully watched on. My wife took part in this portion as we didn't think it wise to lay down with our one year old daughter - so I held her while my wife participated.

    A second part of the Protest had yet to join with the main group. We had to leave to take care of our daughter and encountered the 2nd half of the Protestors making their way towards the 1st as we headed back to the subway at Hollywood and Highland. It was inspiring to see the 2nd set of Protestors marching down Hollywood Blvd. realizing that the protest was much larger than we had thought.
