HOWEVER.. for no reason should a camera crew be handled that way.. the right to media is being blocked by them throwing cameras to the ground..

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.

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.

Where is the press coverage of the police being attacked? I haven't seen any footage of that happening.
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 !

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