- 37.5K Views
On Friday night, radical-left Black Lives Matter protesters stormed a residential neighborhood in Beverly Hills, chanting “Eat the rich!” and “Abolish capitalism now!”
The Beverly Hills Police Department released a tweet, saying: “The unlawful assembly in the area of Rexford Dr & Carmelita Ave has ended with arrests being made. Protesters have now left the City.”
Ian Miles Cheong, a Human Events Editor, shared clips of the event to his Twitter account where the crowd could be heard yelling, “Eat the rich1” and “Abolish capitalism now!”
“The Black Lives Matter mob shut down Santa Monica Boulevard, Rodeo Drive, and intersections around the city center,” said Cheong. The group of vandals had “seized a privately owned American flag in a residential suburb, shredding it and pulling it down.” In the residential area of Beverly Hills, the group was seen in the video playing “loud music and blocked the streets.”
“The police showed up in full force to arrest members of the Black Lives Matter mob making a nuisance of themselves across residential Los Angeles streets,” Cheong added in another tweet. “One pretended to be injured by the police and forced them to drag him.”

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
The City of Beverly Hills issued an order a couple of weeks ago that outlined new rules that it was implementing to keep things peaceful as violent riots have burned down buildings, attacked law enforcement, and looted businesses across the country in the weeks following the death of George Floyd.
“To preserve the peace and tranquility of residential neighborhoods, effective tonight and until further notice, no more than 10 people shall gather in an assembly in a public right of way in a residential area between the hours of 9 p.m. and 8 a.m.,” the City of Beverly Hills said in a statement. “An assembly is defined as any gathering or group of 10 or more people on a public street, sidewalk or other public place if those 10 people have a common purpose or goal.”
“Any assembly that is silent, such as a candlelight vigil, and gatherings on private property are exempt from this emergency order,” the city added.
The New York Times reported earlier this month that angry demonstrators have shown up in wealthy areas across the country in recent weeks, primarily in blue states.
