Melee again

I again want to talk about the mini-riot that was on Tuesday here.

I've heard interviews with the protesters who said how the police overreacted and should not have fired rubber bullets and used their batons against the protesters and while the LAPD might have overreacted keep again in mind the following:

A) The Protesters started the mess by throwing rocks and bottles at the police

B) SOME of the protesters were already breaking the law for being in this country illegally

Keep that in mind.

On a side note there is an op-ed piece in the Los Angeles Times today about how the police should not be enforcing laws regarding illegal aliens. Isn't that part of the job??

Also, the LAPD can't win. They hold back and a dangerous riot starts that will be blamed on them. They jump in and try to control things as they did, and somebody is there to videotape every abuse they perform. The media will just eat up this stuff as it means ratings.

I am really sickened by the culture that policemen are the enemy. This culture is perpetuated in rap music and by idiots such as Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Hillary Clinton.

Not all LAPD are model citizens but I bet it would be very hard to find any group anywhere, where there is such a high standard of ethics and morals.

I'm not a fan of the LAPD. I just feel what's right is right and in this case they did nothing wrong.
