On July 12, 2012, around 9pm, LAPD officers begin to pull out riot helmets even though there is no evident reason for doing so.
For some reason, the police form a line directly in front of F Square Printing. The Owner had his door propped open and the LAPD closed it. He reopened it. The Owner asked the police to leave but they didn’t listen to him.
Also in the video evidence, bystanders walk by unobstructed on the sidewalk.
