After a night that ended in hundreds of arrest, most or unlawful assembly during another day of curfews in Los Angeles County, more protests are planned for Tuesday in Southern California.

Once again, peaceful protests were marred Monday night by looting and vandalism, this time in Van Nuys and Hollywood.

The protests are in response to the death of Floyd, a handcuffed black man who was pinned under the knee of an officer during an arrest a week ago in Minneapolis. One officer has been arrested and charged in the arrest, which sparked nationwide outrage and demonstrations.
