Taking the Los Angeles police officers off the street for firing rubber bullets at immigration protesters is wrong. The officers were attacked with rocks and bottles first. There needs to be an aggressive response to this kind of protest.
The officers are doing a dangerous job and don't need to be attacked and unable to respond. I have seen too many newscasts that show crowds destroying property and attacking police without fear of reprisal. If these unruly crowds were stopped with force and major arrests, maybe the crowds would be less likely to go stupid and start to behave in a more responsive manner, and the public and the police would not be in danger.
