This is the third consecutive council meeting where Black Lives Matter protesters were present.
This council meeting was fairly orderly with some speakers again addressing police shootings.
Stockton Police Officer Joe Silva says after the meeting, protesters attacked a homeless man outside and then the trouble started.
“They were blocking traffic, impeding traffic, during that several arrests were made for blocking the streets and also resisting arrest,” says Silva.
Stockton NAACP President Bobby Bivens says he believes the solution to the ongoing protests is to bring in outside agencies such as the FBI to provide answers.
“It will never be put behind in terms of the lives that have been lost, but at least people can feel confident that there is transparency,” says Bivens.
Silva aso says two of those arrested went to jail, while 10 others were cited and released.
