No riot going on: Black Lives Matter comes to Manhattan Beach

Twenty minutes before noon on Tuesday, protesters began streaming down Manhattan Beach Boulevard. They mostly walked single file, or in small groups, and were mostly young; some were African-American, some Latino, a few white, a few older. They were uniformly disciplined. Some greeted the police officers who had cordoned off the street. Mayor Richard Montgomery watched from the parking lot overlooking the pier.
