It seems that the entire coverage of the Immigrant rights marches across the country yesterday was about how it was "smaller" than last year, but what about the rubber bullets that LAPD fired into the crowd to disperse the marches in LA?

CNN Transcript from ThinkProgress:
It was a dramatic and chaotic end to what was otherwise a peaceful day here in Los Angeles. … Police started to move and disperse the crowd and fired rubber bullets, dozens of rubber bullets, into the crowd. People went running and fleeing, trying to get out of their way, and there really was, there didn’t seem to be any warning. Police just took ground and moved forward and started firing on this crowd. … There were a lot of children and families at the rally, in the crowd, and I’ve got to tell you, there really wasn’t a lot of warning.
