According to the L.A. Times, LAPD Chief Michel Moore first announced the findings during a Tuesday Police Commission meeting.

“The majority of our protests and demonstrations have been peaceful,” Moore said.

The findings come from field reports submitted by police commanders at protests across the city in the wake of the May police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The reports show that between 6% and 7% of protests resulted in violence, destruction, or serious uses of force by police, LAPD said.

The vast majority of events from May 25 to July 31 were peaceful.

Officials said that a full after-action report will be released and will provide more details about the findings. However, they did not say when the report would be published.

    Chief Moore is beholden to the leftist Mayor Garcetti. The mayor supports Marxist left wing groups such as BLM and Antifa that are responsible for the protest/riots that led to property destruction in the billions.

    This report is BS! Chief Moore should resign immediately! Mr. Moore, do you think de-funding the LAPD is a good idea? Small business/commercial property owners are spitting and laughing at you, CLOWN men!
