LAPD Protesters – Macarthur Park Shooting – After Manuel Jamines Killing – The Los Angeles police have so far arrested 22 protesters, after a riot broke out when a Guatemalan immigrant was shot and killed by officers. The demonstrators are mostly Hispanic and have responded to the killing by ambushing police stations with rocks, bottles, and eggs in the MacArthur Park area of downtown Los Angeles.

The police were firing rubber bullets and non-lethal bean-bags into the crowd in order to try and get the people to disperse. Although none of the police or the protesters were injured, one person was hit by a projectile that was fired out of a slingshot.

The riots began after Manuel Jamines, a 37-year-old construction worker, threatened a person walking by with a knife. Bicycle officers arrived at the scene and ordered Jamines to drop the knife. However, the man did not comply and instead raised his arms to come after the officers.

It was then that the police fired shots, and Jamines was taken into custody. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The police officers are adamant that all measures were taken to ensure that Jamines heard and understood their demands, but many of the rioters claim that the officers simply shot him without warning.

  1. “LAPD Protests:”.

    A Knife is a deadly weapon and records show that several people have been killed and injured by one single knife wielding possessed person..

    What will Law Enforcement do on 9/11 if the church burns the Korans.
    Nothing if riots do not brake out.
    If riots brake out how much is that going to cost?!
    Why burn the Koran since is wrong and preaches death and violence against any that stand in their way.
    The Koran teaches to kill Christians and Jews, so how can that be hope for their own salvation?

    Koran lovers burn the American Flag and Bibles and even Americans have burned The Bible and encouraged the radical Muslim Islam to do more of the same.

    Burning The Bible is a crime to those things in it that are sacred to all of us that love God.
    Burning The American Flag is an insult to The Union that freed The Slaves.
    How much must be lost before logic can conquer over inferior enslaving ways?.

    I say not to burn The Koran because is not Pearl Harbor and because it may convince those that are debating to become and Earth/Celestial Union Christian.

    GOD=YHWH says that those that are not in union with him will scattered or will fall away.

    As we watch THE WORLD in drought and many painful wicked inflictions we can blame the disobedience of humans and not God.

    Disobedient, Polluted, Oil/Ethanol competition is killing our Fragile Free Energy MOTHER EARTH with Ocean Death Zones”, Poison gases that kills and causes drought.Etc..

    “Disparities of wage difference” in Ghetto World Perdition makes people migrate and untill that is corrected we will continue to see Law enforcement suffer all those heavy painful tasks against disorder or more disparities.

    50 thousand Iranians became Christians in New York City and that is an extra happiness for “In God We Trust” Union.

    There was this thief that broke into the Police Chief house while The Police Commander Slept. The thief used sleeping gas to outfox The Law Enforcement Commander.

    Where are the mind reading lie detector computers and a glass of water to calm down the prisoner while the print out is red in perfect spelling and word by word.

    Citizens of America and The World must ask for a United World where everybody is created equal in pay check scales. Have a nice day.

    Thank You.

    Sincerely, For Us.

  2. sh*t a doctor makes the same as a mcdonalds worker, LOL yeah you’re right we should all be equal, I will equally slack and never accomplish sh*t if I don’t have to.

  3. are people seriously rioting over this? the man attacked cops with a deadly weapon! any one who attacks cops with a deadly weapon is most likely going to get killed. and no he wasn’t murdered or assasinated. he was killed by his own stupidity. he threatened people with a weapon and attacked the police. the police took the proper measures to defend not only their lives but the lives of the people around them. anyone who gets up in arms over this is a fool. this country gives people so much freedom and all they do is complain. try brandishing a weapon to guatemalan police… they will kill you without hesistation. at least in this case the police verbally warned him of what the consequences are.
