“The events of breaking windows at a variety of different locations with no meaning,” Diaz said. “There was no discussion about what they were fighting for, what type of social justice message. That cannot happen. That level of direct action cannot occur. And we are going to immediately address those issues.”
The chief added that he has “been in conversations” with Holmes who will now prosecute those cases.
“You know when we don’t have any level of accountability for people, and many of them that are coming from outside the city, they will continue that destruction. And we cannot have it,” Diaz said. “We are going to make sure that we arrest those that are doing that damage or creating assaults that are occurring.”
