Oh yeah, land of the free, home of the brave, shoot all the citizens and treat them like dogs but once you touch the corporate media -- THAT'S IT!

In my opinion, Fox News was specifically singled out and beat down to try to deflect all the criticism they get for being a propaganda machine for the leaders of this worldwide cult that is running things. And to insight more symapthy. They most likely sent out those 2 women on purpose.

Bassplyr, I'd like you to offer up some proof for the cop crash story? news article, tv news, time and dates. I'd like to research that one. Thanks.

Hopefully the police, and the rest of the nation, will learn how easily it is for something like this to degenerate into such a situation.

I'm just terrified that people are going to use this to scream out for "rights" of people who are in this country illegally.

Politics and/or agenda of the news channel aside, that is wholly unacceptable behavior!!! I keep hearing lots of bad things about the LAPD.

He's helped Bush et al into power.. He's encouraged them in their war., because that what the majority wanted, but you know, stuff like this could inspire him to switch... He's a media baron, and when the time comes, once he believes he'll get more viewers pulling down the Neocons rather than pumping them up, the'd better watch out..

It will be interesting to see whether the Fox slant on things starts to change in the upcoming months. I bet he has all manner of juicy stories lined up, ready to bury them. He famously did the same in the UK, via his best selling newspaper, The Sun.. for years, he supported the conservatives, and for all that time, the conservatives held power, and it was his switch to supporting the Labour party that was credited with being a deciding factor in Blair coming to power.... and plenty of conservative scalps were taken in the process..

When i saw the video it came to my mind, memories, of what my country was like during the dictatorship.

I fell sorry for people in US.

Its so ironIC that people from the very same news channel that almost daily rants and raves about how good things are and how great this administration is can get it right in their butts and then turn around and expect sympathy. That station supports actions such as that when its not being done to them, wether its illegal immigrants or peace activists...get used to it FOX because it won't be selective treatment.

Im sorry I don't understand the post, how is this incident a police state alert?

Wouldn't it be more likely IF these people were not allowed to march at all?

Was this news crew getting in the way of police performing their duty?

There are to many unanswered questions for people to be yelling "police state".

Also, does not the LAPD have a history of being violent?

Sorry, I don't by the police state thing.


LOL, I'm not laughing at you, but seriously - LAPD has a history of violence? Try looking at how much violence comes out of LOS ANGELES itself. In my (most likely unpopular opinion) the LAPD did what they had to do.

None of you are considering the history LA has for riots. Crime is out of control in Los Angeles (I know, I lived in LA for 4 years, and I live in san diego now for the last 6).

Did you guys ever stop to consider what would happen if a riot insued? What about all the innocent people who live in the surrounding neigborhoods? What about all the property damage and injury that would occur if a riot broke out (taking into account LA's history of rioting).

Where is the press coverage of the police being attacked? I haven't seen any footage of that happening. Yeah, way to go FoxNews for your "Balanced News" ! What a joke !

What do you think would have happened if the police detained just those few 100 people or so (yeah, 100 "few" people LOL) ? Did you ever take into consideration that if more of the parade saw a small group of people being brutalised by the police and taken into custody, they too, would not "intervene" or "jump in" ?

What you have to take into account here is the pysical and emotional energy of the entire event. If one group of people in the parade start getting out of control, do you risk controlling JUST that group, or stopping the entire parade? You MUST take into consideration the lives of those people who also live in that area, but who may not have been participating in the parade.

What would you say if the parade DID get out of hand, and turned into a riot? You would probably turn around and blame the police for not doing their job !

I think alot of you in this thread need to re-think your position before you start rambling on about police states and police brutality.

EDIT for corrections.

Sadly, nothing will come of this. This is in preparation for the coming police state. Freedom of the press - denied! There will some anemic explaination as to why the use of force was necessary and it will be placidly accepted by the majority of Americans. I am disgusted!


That's if the press and the media are truthfull to begin with, I heard the people that police attacked were immigrants.

Yes the protests in L.A. were perfect examples of how police are trained to handle uncooperative citizenry.

Check this thread for info about the riots.

Damned straight. You get a pat on the back for that one.

Here in Australia our Police Force does an EXCELLENT job. I worked alongside them as an Undertaker for 2 years and not once was I disappointed with their proffessionalism and conduct.

When I have witnessed serious beatings and bar-brawls the Police have acted swiftly and thoughtfully. Not once have I ever seen a Police officer use excess force to subdue an offender.

There just seems to be a big problem in America lately, in regards to it's Government-run forces.

It's called Paranoid-Hysteria.

Long live Australia.

Have you considered the possibility that the WEREN'T attacked, and in fact they were the aggressors, as the story suggests?

straw man?

It was reported by fox as well as other news agencies that the police were attacked. The point i'm stressing is - it obviously wasn't important enough for the media to cover. They only admitted that yes, the police had been attacked by bottles and rocks by some people in the parade.

and straw man? Sorry, but I don't get it.

Well,

All I can say is how long has Alex jones been screaming that things like this are happening more, and more? I know some in here don't want to hear his name but this is why as crazy as I think Alex is this type of thing give him very good reason to scream the things he screams. Even if these people were illegal they are still human...I think that you or I might have been given a stronger reaction than the police gave these folks.

We need to get this on the front page - that video was deplorable! There better be some cops going to jail for this.

This is one incident, there are many. You don't get to see them all. My father was a police officer, and he would have never condoned or excused such actions. But this is the mindset of these young punks with a badge. They've become a gang, with the pack mentality to go with it. And they feel immune to prosecution, which is usually true.

On another thread there is the story of a 92 year old woman killed in Georgia during a drug raid gone bad. The officers involved are being punished, not in the extent anyone else would be, but punished non the less. What many miss about this story is that the cops planted evidence in the form of drugs on this old lady, as a way to mitigate the murder.

And the question I have is why they had the drugs to plant. They were going to what they thought was someone dealing drugs, and to be sure they got a conviction, they took along their own evidence to plant. When it turned out to be a great grandmother they killed, they used this planted evidence to try and get away with murder. But why did they have the drugs available to plant in the first place unless they intended to use them, if needed? This is how rotten the police in this nation have become. And yet they still whine and cry because they aren't loved.

You see, law enforcement has lost all respect because they employ the same unethical conduct as any other gang of thugs and degenerates in our society.

I realize that there are good officers, some, but it is your misfortune to be part of such organizations. If you had any integrity or shred of humanity, you would stop defending these cowardly punks, and arrest their ass. Each time you get on some place like this and start making excuses, you put yourself in the spot of being an enabler.

Instead of your display of indignation at people expressing anger at this, you should be joining them. Unless the same darkness lurks in your own soul.
