More than 1,000 protesters gathered Tuesday outside the Getty House in Los Angeles, which serves as the residence of Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The crowd appeared to remain peaceful, with no reports of vandalism or looting in the immediate area, as demonstrations following the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis continued across the U.S., FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported.

“It’s a Black Lives Matter thing,” one protester told FOX 11. “It’s not to get confused; it’s not us versus you, it’s not white versus black. It’s a lot of our people versus bad cops. We understand there’s good cops but there’s a lot of bad cops and it’s not a job that can have bad cops.”
