Protesters and press continue to face violent police outbursts at weekend protests. On Sunday, protests against police actions in California, Ohio, and elsewhere ended again in a barrage of rubber bullets and tear gas.
In Compton yesterday, police fired at people gathered outside a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department station. The demonstrators were protesting the recent killing of 18-year-old Andres Guardado by sheriff’s deputies.
“It’s unclear what prompted the deputies to resort to violence, but protesters could be seen yelling at the deputies, who were at first standing behind metal barriers,” reports local news station KTLA.
