OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland police say they are deploying more officers in anticipation of a fourth straight night of protesting over the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of a black Florida teenager.
Oakland businesses cleaned up Tuesday, a day after nine people were arrested for crimes including assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism.
Protesters smashed downtown storefront windows and sprayed graffiti on businesses Monday night. Others hurled rocks and bottles at officers who threw tear gas in response to disperse the crowd.
The arrests came after dozens of demonstrators chanting "Justice for Trayvon Martin" took to the streets and eventually blocked a stretch of Interstate 880 during the evening rush.
Officer Johnna Watson says police are unaware of any planned protests for Tuesday, but officers will be prepared if any break out.
