KKK 'White Lives Matter' Protest Ends In Several Stabbings And Arrests

A brawl between KKK members and counter-protesters broke out in Anaheim, California, on Saturday.

Despite police presence, at least three people were stabbed. At least 12 people were taken into custody.

A KKK spokesperson described the planned event as a "white lives matter" protest. When Klan members arrived, counter-protesters reportedly confronted them.

An expert on the study of extremism told the Los Angeles Times the sect of the KKK involved in the incident see themselves as a "Klan without robes."

Police told outlets the three people stabbed were all counter-protesters. Officials said one protester may have been stabbed by a Klan member using a metal eagle at the end of a flagpole.
