Los Angeles Police Chief Promises Full Investigation after Officers Charge Demonstrators

Hosted by

During yesterday’s immigrants’ rights marches, 25,000 people demonstrated peacefully for several hours in downtown LA. But in MacArthur Park toward the end of the day, the scene turned ugly. Police say people not associated with the marches were throwing rocks and plastic bottles. Eight adults and one juvenile were arrested; 15 officers were injured and at least 15 civilians were hospitalized. At City Hall late this afternoon, there was a news conference with several city officials. They promised three investigations: two by the LAPD and one by the Inspector General of the Mayor’s appointed Police Commission.
