‘Height of cowardice’: Mother accused of using baby as human shield at BLM protest in LA
The crowd of at least 100 protesters gathered near the South LA sheriff’s deputy station for the fourth straight night of demonstrations, with police declaring an unlawful assembly shortly thereafter, amid a torrent of vile verbal abuse from several protesters.

BABY being used by member of #BLM as a human shield.The heinous height of cowardice. Child should be in custody of protective services as the so-called mother chose not to leave child with trusted relatives/neighbors before deliberately inserting herself into violent riot.— HuitzilopochtliAdams (@HuitzAdams) September 9, 2020
Apparently that child’s life doesn’t matter to her— kristleclear205 (@kristleclear205) September 9, 2020
Protesters then geared up with armor and formed an improvised shield wall in anticipation of crowd control munitions.
Deputies opened fire with pepper bullets shortly afterwards, sending the crowd running for cover.
