EDIT: The shots weren't rubber bullets, but rather plastic capsules filled with lead and paint. And previously, I said I didn't think that any actions rightfully provoked the shots. But that was before I discovered that the two students who were shot were carrying a metal barricade straight at the police line. They said their intention was to place it between the protest line and the police line. But the cops were right in trying to take what could be perceived, especially given the circumstances, as a large object that could potentially be used as a weapon. And when the two students tried to pull it back, and eventually were pushing it into the cops, that's when they were shot. And the kid that was being carried, Anthony, was walking fine the next day, yet he was demanding free health care from the Student Health Center. He's not a UCR student, so of course he was turned away.
