L A Trayvon Martin march 7:14:13_pt_2

I shot this footage in Hollywood on Sunday, July 14th. This is not an anomalistic interaction between police and protesters in Los Angeles. This is a regular occurrence. The LAPD instigates a hostile confrontation with protestors, then escalates the situation, clubs them with batons, shoots them with projectiles and makes arrests. In this case, people chanted in front of the CNN building on Sunset Blvd. The rest is on the video.

Look at the officer who jumps over the young mans feet who has just been tackled by two cops at around 2:40. People had asked the ranking officer to take him off the line because he seemed out of control.
