Anaheim police have blood on their hands. After a man was shot dead in the back of the head as he fled police, residents of the neighborhood in which he lived took to the streets to protest the violence. There, they were met with even more violence from the police.
According to reports from the local news affiliate, police fired bean bags and rubber bullets into the crowd filled with women and children – and then let loose a police canine that attacked a mother and her child. Following the incident, police reportedly tried to purchase cell phone video taken by eyewitnesses. Once again, we’re seeing the consequences of an over-militarized police force.
