Cincinnati Police Make More Mass Arrests After a 4th Day of Demonstrations

A quieter night on the streets of Cincinnati as police make nearly 100 more arrests for violating the curfew put in place by the Mayor. There was not the widespread looting and vandalism that marked the first few nights of unrest. Police Chief Elliot Isaac tells nine news---the curfew helped prevent that, "we had to do this to prevent the amount of damage, we have had over 100 businesses looted."

A total of nearly 500 people have been arrested in four nights and police records show the majority of those being taken into custody have been white and under 30, with no prior criminal record. At least one local law firm is recruiting people who have been arrested to join a class action lawsuit being filed against the city for violating their civil rights.
