The DA is next up for election in 2020. Chris Bowman, a spokesman for his office, responded to the protest by referencing two shootings that happened on Tuesday shortly after 5 p.m.By the way, House Bill 272 passed last week. Should the Senate concur, that would make the recall process slightly easier to accomplish in Louisiana.
"It appears as though while that protest was going on, two people were shot in the city, one of whom was killed. The DA is far more concerned about the violent crime that is spiraling out of control than that small protest," Bowman said.

Apparently you are with Cannizzaro or you are with the terrorists
Something like 50 to 100 people turned out to protest yesterday on a Tuesday during rush hour. The DA's office is very not mad, though.
