Two ideals in this article are rights and equality.

Two ideals in this article were denied, and those ideals were rights and equality. The police were taking away the Hispanics rights to a peaceful night at a street fair by causing a huge disruption to the whole event. Also taking away their rights by kicking the man they were trying to arrest, which is unlawful. Equality is a ideal in this article because they were treating the Hispanic's equally as to other races. There have been a lot of cases involving officers beating Hispanics unlawfully, most of the time because of their skin color and where they’re from. They have not been treating the Hispanics as equally as they have been treating other citizens of America.
