The best comment I saw on Facebook after the Zimmerman verdict was from Bilal Ali: "Amerikkka never has placed value on black lives".
I shot this footage in South Central on Sunday, July 14th. This is not an anomalistic interaction between police and protesters in Los Angeles. This is a regular occurrence. The LAPD escalates the situation, in this case by forming a line in the middle of a peaceful protest, then clubbing and shooting people with projectiles.
Look at the woman on the right side of the frame at around 0:29 whose head snaps back when the cop hits her in the face with his club.
