Transcript for Riots, looting break out in California after George Floyd killing
Now to the massive protests out west. Our chief national correspondent Matt Gutman was in Santa Monica overnight where hundreds were arrested. Matt, good morning. Reporter: Good morning, Amy. On Saturday night it was Beverly hills, rodeo drive. Last night here upscale Santa Monica. It seems the protestors have been trying to take their words, their demonstrations to the places of privilege, but on the periphery, outside those protests where all that frenzy, that spasm of looting is taking place, I want you to see the tags on the walls of the supermarket. Apparently they threw a brick in here, slid the doors open, and I want you to see inside what it looks like. Have our cameraman take a right here. That's the liquor aisle. Everywhere you look there's absolute destruction. We're going to walk a little bit farther in here. This spasm of looting was all over the city. Just with our own eyes we saw dozens of stores destroyed and gutted and we also saw a lot of angry business owners. Over 1,000 arrests over the past 48 hours and people wondering where were the police, Amy. Matt Gutman, thank you.
