Chaos Erupts After Anaheim Police Open Fire on Unarmed Crowd Including Women and Children

Activist Post

The video marks a new low in police conduct. The final horrific incident on display allegedly was sparked by the suspicious killing of a man who witnesses say did nothing more than turn to run from police.

After “an unruly crowd” — as the reporter below conveniently states — gathered to ask questions and express anger at what was perceived to be a senseless killing, the officers further proved that those who were gathered had valid concerns about their local police force. In response, police quickly opened fire with rubber bullets, and even set a dog loose on a woman with a baby stroller. The woman was able to grab her baby before the dog arrived, but she was slightly injured, while a man can be seen in the video having his arm bitten.

Police brutality videos are legion, with many of the worst, such as the infamous torture killing of Kelly Thomas, carrying “age restricted” notices (the one below is now included). This restricted notice in many cases restricts them from going viral, even though other scenes of violence classified as “entertainment” are readily available.

This story is still developing and is under investigation, but a very strange aspect to it is mentioned by the reporter in the final moments of the video: witnesses are claiming that Anaheim officers were offering to buy the cell phone footage that some people captured.

It is up to anyone appalled by these actions to inform whomever they can that life in America continues to degenerate at an alarming pace. Police are being trained to see the American people as a threat first, and as citizens of a Constitutional Republic a very distant second. We must be prepared to demand that our local law enforcement use the utmost restraint, and punish those who have offended the honor and duty of what it means to protect and serve. In the meantime, local residents are being urged to take action by protesting in front of the Anaheim Police Department — a large group is taking shape on their Facebook Event Page HERE.

Here are additional sources – some with video footage. News anchors say angry witnesses to the deadly shootout started throwing rocks and bottles – but that is not seen in the YouTube video which takes place during day. Another point worth noting is that some of the mainstream news sources are emphasizing that these were non-lethal rounds being shot, but how could the crowd be aware of that … especially children?

    i find it ironic that the police brutality video is no longer available due to a CBS news copyright. Stinks of media cover-up. Surely the footage belonged to a local bystander first. Where is that original footage? Has someone used their money to express their free speech rights by buying that footage & suppressing it’s dissemination, too? Freaking ridiculous that the footage of public events that occurred on a public street, involving the public at large, & those that who are acting as so-called public servants & who owe their paychecks to the tax dollars the public paid, is claimed as private property & denied viewing by an interested member of the public. Next we will be banned from even discussing the events themselves, b/c someone else will have bought the story, thereby excluding anyone that hasn’t paid for it from discussing it w/o committing a criminal act. people are becoming so fed up with this type of ridiculous abuse of power. bottle-throwing is only the beginning.
