LA continues protests

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Los Angeles is seeing a third night of protests over a decision not to file criminal charges against a Ferguson, Missouri policeman who shot a black man.

About 200 demonstrators peacefully marched through downtown yesterday afternoon and evening, gathering at a federal court building, then police headquarters and finally heading toward county jail, where a line of police kept them back.

Earlier, nine people were arrested after they sat down in a bus lane on U.S. 101 near downtown during one of the busiest driving days of the year.

Police say at least 202 protesters have been arrested, mostly for disturbing the peace, over the past three days.

Lawyers and police say most are being released but a few could be held through the weekend pending scheduled Monday arraignments.
