This is the action, of one police department, out of thousands across the nation. The LAPD has always done a great job of making themselves look bad.
IMO, this has nothing to do with a police state, or an oncoming police state.
It was the actions of a single department in one city out of thousands across the nation.
Whether these were legitamate assholes attempting to incite a riot or police paid assholes, the cops did initially respond appropirately.
However, the man in charge obviously had his own agenda, because there was no need for the police to get as carried away as they did. There are
more than enough police, equipped with armor strong enough to stop bullets, let alone rocks hurled from someones hand, to be able to see exactly who
did what, and quickly detain the specific individuals.
If I were a police officer having rocks thrown at me, I would not do a thing until an additional unit has come from behind the instigators to ensure
they did not escape.
If these cops were at war, they would have been brought down quickly.
