Los Angeles, CA - Police Chief William Bratton said Sunday that members of his elite Metro Division who swarmed into a Los Angeles park and fired rubber bullets during a May Day immigration rally are no longer on the street.

While Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was downtown saying those responsible for the melee will be held accountable, Bratton met with journalists at the KTLA-TV studios in Hollywood and conceded procedures were not followed.

“I’m not going to defend the indefensible,” Bratton said, adding, “Things were done that shouldn’t have been done.”

“I’m not seeking to excuse it, but as one human being to another, there were things that shouldn’t have been done,” Bratton told journalists. [AP]
