Video Shows 'Thriller' Flash Mob Against Echo Park Gang Injunction

Videos posted to YouTube last week show the zombie-themed protest against the recent Echo Park gang injunction.

Organized by the Youth Justice Coalition and S.A.F.E., the flash mob performance of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" was part of a larger protest and bike ride on Oct. 26.

In the video, the flash mob blocks the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Echo Park Avenue as traffic backs up and starts honking. An LAPD helicopter circles overhead during the performance.

Youth Justice Coalition's Kim McGill said that the "Thriller" flash mob will be a creative way for local youth to peacefully protest the city's gang injunction.

"The zombie theme was chosen by youth," McGill said. "Based on the increased police stops in the injunction zone, youth decided that the zombies should be police and the charcter originally protrayed as 'Michael Jackson's date' could be community youth attacked at the end by the zombies."
