Protesters Disrupt Stockton City Council Meeting, Tussle With Officers

STOCKTON (CBS13) – Protesters disrupted a city council meeting at Stockton’s city hall Tuesday evening.

For the second time this month, protesters and relatives of several individuals who lost their lives at the hands of law enforcement officers had to be kicked out of the council chambers.

Police say about 30 protesters were yelling and causing a disturbance. The protesters are calling for a federal investigation into the Stockton Police Department.

The meeting was temporarily stopped while the group was cleared out. Officers say the protesters used chairs to try and stop them from advancing. Police also say several officers were assaulted by members of the group.

Mayor Michael Tubbs later posted a statement apologizing about the incident.

After order was restored, the council voted on a resolution affirming Stockton’s commitment to the protection of immigrants.

Police revealed Wednesday that two body cameras were knocked off of officers during the incident. One of the cameras had been recovered, but the other one is still missing.

No arrests have been made, police say.

    Another chit hole California city protecting ILLEGALS. Stockton is trash and a waste. A majority of the people living there have zero respect for laws, look at the crime rate, violent crime and property values. But the council again wants to protect illegals instead of cleaning up their city. if we conducted a thorough count, the number of illegals in Stockton would be one of the highest in the state. The city will continue the decline into hell.
