Arrests Made in Latest Anaheim Shooting Protests

Source: NBC News (Los Angeles, CA)

Tensions rose again Sunday as demonstrators protesting Anaheim police shootings clashed with police and several arrests were made.

Up to 300 demonstrators protested as tensions surrounding recent officer-involved police shootings there entered their second week. Details about the arrests were not immediately available.


. . . .

Police in riot gear and on horseback formed a line outside police headquarters as the picket lines grew. Police are maintaining vigilance against the potential for violence.

"The initial group that was here concerned about the police incidents have said their piece and have moved on," said Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn. "What you're seeing left here is the people who are more interested in disruption and possibly vandalism or violence."

Oh yeah, people "who are more interested in disruption". What a typical fucking pig.

1. NBC's writers seem to favor a two-sentence maximum for their paragraphs. So

 

here's some additional context. (Mods: if this violates DU copyright policies, please let me know and I'll happily delete this post):

"The protests were prompted by the July 21 shooting of Manuel Angel Diaz during a foot chase with police. He was unarmed.

Tensions were heightened when Anaheim police fatally shot a second man, Joel Acevedo, in a separate incident the next day. On Friday, police shot at but did not hit a burglary suspect."

2. "Police are maintaining vigilance against the potential for violence"??

Really? Because it looks like the people are maintaining vigilance against police violence.

Silly MSM, mixed up again.

4. Never forget that NBC is owned by GE (nation's 2nd largest defense contractor and

 

proxy for the 1%).

I posted this in LBN b/c someone in GD suggested I do so.

Diaz' family has now filed a $50 million wrongful death suit against APD and city of Anaheim. If you want to see how disgusting Orange County still is in 2012, go to the comments section of any LA Times story on the issue. No one actually comes out and calls the shooting victims 'sp**s' but they might as well be. Really fucking disgusting.
