First - that you did not watch the documentary. Because in this film, you can actually see what was happening on that day, when the cameraman was filming the pro-Chavez gathering infront of presidentdal palace and then the anti-Chavez crowds came there too (which was NOT planned, but was only a provocation to create a confrontation between the two opposing sides on the streets and create chaos).

On Friday night, a battalion of the 160th Infantry and the 1st Reconnaissance Squadron of the 18th Armored Cavalry were sent into the riot area (about 2,000 men). Two days later, the remainder of the 40th Armored Division was sent into the riot zone. A day after that, units from northern California arrived (a total of around 15,000 troops). These National Guardsmen put a cordon around a vast region of South Central Los Angeles, and for all intents and purposes the rioting was over by Sunday. Due to the seriousness of the riots, martial law had been declared.
