This was a section of the over 400 police who surrounded the convention center in San Juan Puerto Rico. They were there to protect the SEIU from angry demonstrations by Puerto Rican teachers who are protesting a union busting raid by SEIU officials Dennis Rivera and Andy Stern. Police attacked teachers who successfully were able to picket next to the convention entrance.
