Default 1 hurt as L.A. police clash with protesters

Quote:
LOS ANGELES — At least one person was injured in a melee outside Los Angeles' Rampart police station Tuesday night after at least 100 demonstrators threw eggs, rocks and bottles to protest a bicycle officer fatally shooting a knife-wielding man two nights earlier.
Quote:
The 20-year-old, Jesus Alejandro Hernandez Carmona, was lying on the ground and bleeding profusely from the left side of his head, the Times said. He was near a candle-lighted memorial to Manuel Jamines, 37, a knife-wielding Guatemalan immigrant day laborer shot by a Rampart police officer on Sunday afternoon.
Quote:
The crowd shouted in Spanish, "Police are racist and killers!" and "Join the march!" as they were led by a man shouting in a bullhorn.
Quote:
The officers involved are Frank Hernandez, a 13-year veteran; Steven Rodriguez, a five-year veteran; and Paris Pineda, who also has been on the force for five years, Beck told reporters at news conference at LAPD headquarters Tuesday evening.
so a hispanic cops shoot a hispanic because they're racists ?

There was a recent similiar protest in Oakland.

Racially motivated tensions with the police seems to be gaining steam out here all over California.

It's going to unfortunately result in some serious rioting someday in the near future.

Authorities have said the bicycle officers told Jamines in Spanish and English to put down the weapon. Instead, Jamines raised the knife above his head and lunged at Officer Frank Hernandez, a 13-year veteran of the department, said Capt. Kris Pitcher, who heads the LAPD's Force Investigation Division.

Salvador Sanabria, executive director of the nonprofit community group El Rescate, said Jamines' first language apparently was a Mayan dialect, not Spanish, and said some police need to be trained in it.
