Thousands of LA protesters arrested over curfew won't be charged

City Attorney Mike Feuer said in a statement that his office will take on a non-punitive approach to prosecuting violations outside of violence, looting or vandalism for those arrested during the Floyd protests.

The non-punitive punishments could be financial or otherwise and are expected to begin being implemented later in the summer.

“Peaceful protest is profoundly important, and these protests have rekindled a long-overdue effort to change hearts, minds and institutions. We can’t let this moment pass as we have too many times before,” Feuer said.
