WATCH enraged protesters breach CBS studio gates in Los Angeles

WATCH enraged protesters breach CBS studio gates in Los Angeles
Rioters used large wheeled garbage containers to smash through the main gate of the CBS television complex during mass protest rallies and unrest in Los Angeles.

A video from the scene shows a large crowd of violent protesters ramming the fence with garbage containers and breaking it open. People also threw projectiles into the security guard booth. 

A different clip shows security guards trying to close off the fence, while the rioters push another container into the gate and accidentally hit one of their own. It is not clear whether the protesters made it past the entrance.

The demonstrations were sparked by the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, during his attempted arrest by a white police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota, earlier this week.

The protest rallies in Los Angeles and several other major cities across the US began peacefully but later escalated into rioting, looting, and clashes with police, forcing authorities in several states to introduce curfews and call in the National Guard.
