Police Hope YouTube Video Will Help Identify #Occupiers In May Day Attacks On Officers (Video)

Police are hoping video taken by blogger Tony Vera will lead them to the violent #occupy protesters who assaulted police during the May Day anti-capitalist protests.

CBS Local reported:

Police Wednesday hoped video would help identify the people responsible for two apparently unprovoked attacks on LAPD officers during a May Day rally Tuesday.

Photographer Tony Echevarria, who shot the video, has been covering protests since the Occupy L.A. days at City Hall.

He said what he witnessed on Tuesday turned his stomach.

“It was a sucker punch from behind with a futon board. One cop fell, back of his head, it was ugly,” Echevarria said.

His video became the focal point of an LAPD investigation and manhunt.

“I love video. Video doesn’t lie,” Echevarria said.

Echevarria’s video clearly shows what happened Tuesday at about 5 p.m. at 4th and Hill Streets during a May Day demonstration.

Here is Tony’s video of the police officer being attacked by a radical leftist #occupier at the May Day event.
