city news service wire announcement of council task force public hearing yesterday still contains original lapd version "demonstrators responded by throwing..."
the los angeles cns (city news service) report announcing the city council task force's public hearing today on the mayday police assault states the attack occured "...when police tried to disperse some demonstrators who had moved off the sidewalk into Alvarado Street. Some demonstrators responded by throwing plastic bottles and rocks at officers."
in fact this was the actual immediate police position: that their use of force intially was to clear alvarado of people "who had moved off the sidewalk." they were forced to retreat from this position to just the "bottles & rocks provocation" after bratton acknowledged in his 1st press conference at city hall that the lapd had "assisted" the march into the street well before it even reached alvarado, after many aerial news videos made this indisputable.
this "original cause", still in the cns newsloop, belies the entire lapd/city explanation as well as further exposing miwon's official parroting of bratton's fraud.
[Special Task Force Hold 1st Public Hearing Tonight on May Day Mini-Riots
LOS ANGELES, CA (CNS) -- A City Council task force charged with monitoring the police probe of the May Day melee at an immigration rally at MacArthur Park is scheduled to hold its first meeting today, Councilman Ed Reyes announced.
The council's Special Task Force on May 1 Protests will meet at 6 p.m. at Charles White Elementary School, 2401 Wilshire Blvd.
The panel will discuss investigations under way by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Police Commission's inspector general. The meeting also will serve as a forum for the public to express opinions about the confrontation.
The committee will be headed up by Reyes and Councilman Jack Weiss. Council members Wendy Greuel, Jan Perry and Jose Huizar also will sit on the panel.
''It is my expectation that this first task force meeting will serve as a vehicle to restrengthen the relationships and confidence between the community, the city and all those affected by the May 1 protests,'' said Reyes, whose 1st District includes MacArthur Park.
Demonstrators, journalists and police officers were injured in the park May 1, when police tried to disperse some demonstrators who had moved off the sidewalk into Alvarado Street. Some demonstrators responded by throwing plastic bottles and rocks at officers. Officers clad in riot gear used batons and fired 146 rounds of foam-rubber bullets to disperse the crowd.]
