June 25, 2022, LOS ANGELES (KTLA News— A man who allegedly attacked a police officer with a “makeshift flamethrower” during Friday night’s [pro-abortion] demonstration in downtown Los Angeles has been arrested and is facing *possible charges for attempted murder.


*Update 06/26/2022: Ortiz has now been formally charged for attempted murder of a (LAPD) police officer.

The Los Angeles Police Department said 30-year-old Michael Ortiz attacked an officer with a torch, sending the officer to the hospital with burn injuries.


The attack happened during protests staged in downtown Los Angeles following the United States Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. [...]

He remains in custody as of Saturday night with bail set at $1 million... .

LAPD Chief Michel Moore (in a news release) said: “I condemn the violence against officers that occurred last night and into today. Individuals participating in such criminal activity are not exercising their *1st Amendment rights in protest of the Supreme Court decision, rather, they are acting as criminals.”


*The American, erroneous concept of "1st Amendment rights", is of course foreign to the mind of the Catholic Church. -ED
