More Than 200 People Arrested At Protests In Louisiana And Minnesota

An Associated Press reporter saw Mckesson leave the East Baton Rouge Parish jail on Sunday afternoon.

PROMINENT Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson and 100 other people were arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, at the weekend as protests erupted over the police shooting of African-American Alton Sterling.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown told CNN on Sunday Micah X. Johnson had improvised as he used "shoot-and-move" tactics to gun down officers during a demonstration on Thursday, the deadliest day for USA law enforcement since September 11, 2001.

Protesters were demonstrating against the shooting death Tuesday of 37-year-old Alton Sterling.

Police have confiscated three rifles, three shotguns and two pistols during protests, Coppola said earlier in an email. Members of the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense were also present, shouting "Black Power" and raising their fists, police said.

The St. Paul protesters, who kicked off the night at 8 p.m. from the governor's mansion, forced the closure of Interstate 94. Some participants allegedly threw objects and dropped liquids from overpasses on officers below. Others allegedly directed laser pointers at officers.

Several hundred protesters outraged by the police killings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota took to the streets of San Francisco, blocking several roads and ramps to get on and off the Bay Bridge. "It's burning pretty bad". Moments later, said Brittany Packnett, a fellow campaigner, two officers forcefully arrested Mr McKesson.

As Mr McKesson and a group of about eight people walked down the middle of the street, an officer approached him and told him that he had been "flagged" and that he would be arrested if he left the pavement again. "They have provoked people, they chase people just for kicks. The protesters have not".

"I just need you people to know. Don't fight me! Don't fight me!"

Mckesson responds: "I'm under arrest, y'all!" The camera is then knocked to the ground.

The woman was arrested at the start of the protest, when Bachman said it was peaceful, but the Baton Rouge Police Department later said 102 people were arrested, majority later in the night.

Evans was named on a list of people detained and booked in connection to the protest for obstructing a highway.

Bachman's photo was shared widely on social media, where it was labelled a "powerful" and "legendary" image that would emerge as representative of the Black Lives Matter protests that are spreading across the US. One officer was hit by a projectile and injured in the weekend protests, authorities said.

Protesters who support the Black Lives Matter movement rallied in Salt Lake City, with some saying they grieved both the losses of the black men in Louisiana and Minnesota and fallen Dallas police officers.

Tensions between black citizens and police have risen since last week's killings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, and Philando Castile in Minnesota by white officers, and a retaliatory attack on white police by a black sniper in Dallas that killed five officers and wounded others.
