Immigration Rally attacked by Police...

A day of peaceful immigration rallies in major US cities Tuesday was marred when Los Angeles police fired rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.
Witnesses said police wearing riot gear and wielding batons gave no warning before firing at rally participants gathered at MacArthur Park. Some members of the media were also victims of police brutality.
There is an investigation underway to determine whether police used excessive force. Same old story. Fortunately, nobody was killed.
