Jack-Booted Thugs Destroy Peaceful Assembly

This is perhaps the best video I've seen of the terroristic oppression of the people at the L.A. May Day assembly. The assembly was peaceful, legal, and in a public place. The police who turned into thugs that day should be in prison, along with the higher-ups who created the fascist culture of the Department.

CBS News' take on the event, noting the Rodney King incident and the Department of Justice's oversight of the Department, can be found here . Police Tactics At Immigration Rally Draw Ire, online story found here, Copyright CBS News 2007.

I hope the nest protest involves civil rights training -- passive resistance would have been more effective at spreading the message here.
