LA Police Chief William Bratton’s most highly trained officers went out of control last Tuesday, when Platoon B of the Metro Squad fired rubber bullets and swung batons at peaceful demonstrators and reporters. The Chief says the cops outnumbered the few he called "agitators" more than three to one. LA Police Protective League President Bob Baker says, "We are being damned before a trial or investigation," which is having "a profound impact not only on Metro but every officer in the city."
