Mexican police wouldn’t have used rubber bullets.

That ain’t rubber, it’s foam bullets! I did see that report from CNN, how so very dramatic.

Was CNN complaining that they were “rubber” bullets and not marshmallow?

CNN calls it an “immigration rally”, as if it’s all about nice legal immigrants being mistreated.

We barely mistreat our illegal immigrants. Legal ones are worshipped like demi-gods.

The only thing CNN kept dwelling on was that there were ....’gasp’...children in the crowd. The reporter talked to an illegal who was saying how he was just there to demand that they be given citizenship and their ‘rights’!!

Let ‘em ALL go back south of the border and then they can ‘demand’ whatever they want but we’re tired of seeing and hearing them here.

More lawyers than protesters will be involved now. Probably 10K cameras were waiting to film the overzealous law officers.

Damn anyone who claims to have rights after they committed an illegal act and snuck in this country. I"m sick of this. You come to our country and DEMAND rights?

Hey, illegal aliens, if you want rights, apply for citizenship the legal way and wait your #&^%*&^ turn.

GO TO HELL, ILLEGAL ALIENS DEMANDING ANYTHING OF US. We love people who respect us enough to go the legal route. You, on the other hand, have no respect for us, our country, or our traditions.

AMERICA HAS HAD ENOUGH OF YOUR $#!+.

The irony is that CNN probably thinks the public is going to be upset about this. I think the police should have used water cannons.

“Tossed” bottles? How...nonviolent sounding.

“Here, Mr. policeman, let me “toss” you a bottle.

In response the police "conveyed" rubber bullets to the protesters.

The sad thing is, CNN is still more polished than the tabloidy a-s clowns at the Murdoch network, the great Brit Hume being the exception.

I feel your outrage but these illegals have no understanding of first world concepts like rule of law, right or wrong, civic responsibility, or higher principle. Instead of attacking these poor, desperation-hardened victims of corrupt principalities, place blame where it belongs- with our own cynical politicians. Between the command economy left and the money above all else right, regular citizens have been eating dollar cheeseburgers laced with stupid sauce and thus dumbed out of the political process. With the Marxist Democrats pursuing their elitist, I know better than you plan, they want shove down our throats and the profits before national interests, public be damned right-wingers, rank and file Americans are at the mercy of these two political cannibals. I say fire the politicians and put some Americans in office.

They know enough to manipulate the media and use violence to achieve their ends.

So no, these criminal invaders don't get any slack.

They want to be treated with respect, let them start with respecting our borders and our laws. Then they will begin earning reciprocal treatment.

Eh, something I’m missing here? I read that as throwing the media’s parsing right back at ‘em.

I didn’t know those crowd dispersers were so large, m’self. Lovely marks left on the po’ widdle criminals’ skin; as an American, I’m proud.

Maybe the male with the scarf hiding his face marched in the L.A. anti-war protest sponsored by A.N.S.W.E.R.

Perhaps he carried the banner that supported Castro or Chavez.

Standard routine:

When your protest goes bust because almost no one shows up, provoke a confrontation with the police. 15 cops were injured, hardly a ‘peaceful’ demonstration.

Well sir, since they chose to be criminals and gain entrance to our home illegally, they missed out on the convential acclimation process that is designed to teach them.

Since they willingly chose to forgo that, I'm perfectly content to see them learn all about it at the end of a baton or worse. Then see them all deported so they can do it the proper way next time around. I suspect by then the lesson will be learned.

But really, to hell with marxists and socialists.

My family is half recent immigrants. They endured years of processing to become naturalized citizens. I attended my wife's naturalization around '96 after she'd been in process since around age 18. Years and years...

These illegals think they are above her. They think they are above all the Latino side of the family who has followed lawful procedure to become naturalized citizens. I take huge exception to that.

I say fire the politicians and put some Americans in office.

Well said - Cheers!

In 1969, during a “spontanious” riot in East Los Angeles along Whittier Blvd (a main road), Deputy John Delnero was struck by a coca cola bottle in the face.

It knocked out most of his teeth, cracked his pallette and caused arterial bleeding that almost cost his life. The bottle had been packed with wet beach sand to add weight.

If we’d been allowed to kill the S.O.B.s then, we might have cut down on the number of riots that have ensued since then. John’s wife, up until this event had been a very liberal lady as to regarding the Kent State shooting of rock and bottle throwers. The lady changed her tune.

I was the one that elected to use the descriptive term "tossed" without really having given it much thought........it was the first word that came to mind.

I suppose I could have used.........
