LAPD's chief Bratton regrets rally tactics

The Chicago Tribune

LOS ANGELES, Calif.— Police Chief William Bratton said Wednesday that some of the police tactics used Tuesday to clear immigration protesters from MacArthur Park were inappropriate, as news videos showed officers striking people with batons and firing rubber bullets into crowds that included children.

Images showed police hitting a television cameraman to the ground and shoving people who were walking away from officers at the demonstration.
