Ramparts Rally

August 17, 2000

The ongoing scandal at the LAPD Rampart station brought thousands into the streets of LA yesterday to protest police brutality here in Los Angeles. The Police were extremely aggressive as the march moved through the Rampart neighborhood. About 30 people were arrested after committing civil disobedience at the station. The neighborhood around the Rampart station is made up largely of Latino immigrants and is known around the country for the incredible cases of police corruption and brutality as story after story have come out about police misconduct. Yesterday’s march moved from the Rampart Division to Police Headquarters and finished at the Staples center where the police moved in with guns drawn and batons swinging. We were there when police fire a round of rubber bullets at demonstrators. We go now to some of the action from these protests.
