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.

We were there when police fire a round of rubber bullets at demonstrators. We go now to some of the action from these protests.
