Police ordered a lingering group of anti-Donald Trump protesters to disperse on Friday night after an hours-long demonstration through downtown Los Angeles that ended where it started, at City Hall.
Dozens of officers, wearing ballistic helmets and holding up batons, lined up around the group, which was chanting, "Right to assemble!" Minutes later, shortly before midnight, police ordered everyone to go home.
"I'm not leaving," said 19-year-old Kimberly Solano, noting that she was prepared to get arrested. "Whatever happens, happens."
