Los Angeles police are on the warpath to find several people who hit officers during May 1 Occupy protests.
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck shared video images at a news conference of two attacks on officers that occurred after a splinter group broke from the main Occupy Wall Street march on Broadway.
In one video, a man is seen hitting a female officer from behind, smashing what appears to be a metallic-coloured drum into her helmeted head.
The incident occurred at about 4:15 pm at the intersection of Fourth and Hill streets, where Occupy L.A. protesters and activist groups had rallied for May Day.
“This is a serious crime against a Los Angeles police officer who was just doing her job,” Beck said.
The officer had to be treated for a minor concussion and was resting at home, Beck said.
In another video, a group of protesters is seen smashing into a skirmish line of officers with a wooden pallet, again from behind.
It seems the protesters were tired of the police state crackdown on protests, and they wanted to retaliate.
Beck called the attacks cowardly and noted that the majority of protesters demonstrated peacefully on Tuesday.
No arrests have been made in the attacks, and police are seeking at least three suspects.
At another May Day demonstration at Los Angeles International Airport, 10 union demonstrators were arrested for blocking an intersection.
Beck urged anyone who has information about the protesters involved in the attacks to contact police.
“Don’t let the actions of very few individuals detract from what was a very successful May Day,” Beck said.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
