LAPD Chief Bratton Apologizes for May 1

Who's apologizing now?

LAPD Chief Bratton for the stupid behavior of the LAPD' "finest" firing rubber bullets at kids and reporters. Puhleeze. This is immigration phobia all around. You can blame the idiot GOPers for lighting this blaze in the first place. Republicans are supposed to be "pro-business". Business needs immigrants. What gives, you dopes? Go back to the anti-abortion corner and leave the American emotional temperature alone.

Los Angeles Police Chief William J. Bratton on Sunday offered his strongest apology yet for the actions of an elite platoon of Metropolitan Division officers who swarmed a May Day immigration rally in MacArthur Park, and said that those officers are off the streets until he finds out what went wrong. Saying he watched extensive videos of Tuesday's incident, which left several reporters and rally attendees injured by batons and rounds of foam bullets and sock-like projectiles, Bratton called the officers' conduct indefensible.

"I feel comfortable apologizing…. Things were done that shouldn't have been done," Bratton told a group of journalists who gathered at the KTLA-TV Channel 5 studios in Hollywood. "I'm not seeking to excuse it…. As one human being to another, there were things that shouldn't have been done."
