Three LAPD Officers Injured During Standoff With Shooting Protesters
September 07, 2010
A crowd of protestors arrived at Rampart Station on Monday to protest the shooting of a Guatamalan immigrant by LAPD bicycle patrol officers, the Los Angeles Times reports.
During a tense, 12-hour standoff, protesters burned mattresses and shouted "Assassination" in Spanish and told the paper that Manuel Jamines, 37, was unarmed when officers shot him.
LAPD Capt. Rigo Romero said officers recovered a knife from the scene and that detectives were investigating the killing. Jamines was allegedly threatening passers-by with the knife.
Four protesters were arrested and three LAPD officers were injured when bottles and a rock were thrown at them.

Where is I.C.E. when you need them? Has anyone in the LAPD checked the criminal and legal status of Mr.Jamines?

OH Man! The Captain shouldn't have said that their investigation was going to be "transparent" the term hasn't meant the same since '08...
They didn't happen to mention if the "victim" was legally present in the United States....

Please, call it was it is! "Stand off with illegal immigrants" I feel that I.C.E could solve this issue by driving to this location, start checking legal status and taking these people into custody.
