She later told Fox News, “I’m extremely proud of the hundreds of people who showed up yesterday to exercise their First Amendment rights and take immediate action to peacefully protest the giant injustices that have been delivered from our Supreme Court.”

Sweetin added, “Our activism will continue until our voices are heard and action is taken. This will not deter us, we will continue fighting for our rights. We are not free until ALL of us are free.”

The LAPD told People Magazine, “The LAPD is aware of a video clip of a woman being pushed to the ground by officers not allowing the group to enter on foot and overtake the 101 freeway.”

The department continued, “The force used will be evaluated against the LAPD’s policy and procedure.”

Additionally, the department explained, “As the nation continues to wrestle with the latest Supreme Court decision, the Los Angeles Police Department will continue to facilitate 1st Amendment rights, while protecting life and property.”

Protests have broken out across the nation following the news of the ruling.

CNN reported at least 20 people were taken into custody with charges pending in New York, according to police.

Over the weekend, the Capitol Police announced on Twitter that “two people were arrested for destruction of property. They were accused of throwing paint over the fence by the U.S. Supreme Court.”
