"Police in riot gear threw

"Police in riot gear threw some tear gas canisters at the crowd and made some arrests. Police say protesters threw firecrackers and at least one bottle."

The DPD chief Lopez, has made peaceful protest impossible and violent assault of protesters both probable and palpable. The likelihood of police operatives setting off firecrackers and tossing a bottle to justify this kind of abuse is more believable than some anonymous outsiders he referred to.

Here's my parsing of DPD chief Lopez's own official statement after the death of Jesus Huerta.

He stated that the gun Huerta allegedly used to shoot himself was not found on him before cuffing him behind his back. The arresting officer was driving into the station's parking lot when he said he heard a shot and ditched the moving patrol car with Huerta inside until it came to rest against other vehicles in the lot. The gun was found on the floorboard. He was being hauled in for a warrant over a second-degree trespassing charge.
