“I felt like maybe there would be some momentum and we would move somewhere. And the reforms that people were pressing…would actually be taken seriously rather than we just see the same b******t and nothing actually change,” Rose Lenehan, a protestor, told CBSLA’s Laurie Perez at the scene.

“There will be a time when we don’t have to deal with this. We just have to keep making our voice heard,” Hall said.
